We will always buy broken jewellery as the precious metal content has a scrap value. For higher end jewellery that we would want to restore for resale the nature of the damage would be taken into consideration in our quote. Our goldsmith is very experienced and capable of restoring broken items where viable. Jewellery not suitable for resale will be calculated at scrap value for the metals and gemstones. All of our pre-owned jewellery is professionally cleaned and polished before resale.
For watches it depends on the nature of the damage and would be taken into consideration in our quote. We have an excellent independent horologist and use specific brand service centres for watch repairs. All of our watches are sent for servicing before we resell them.
We can pay you immediately by Bank Transfer or Cash if you prefer. We are also happy to part-exchange against any jewellery or watches from Gold Arts.
Yes. Once we have agreed a price you will need to provide photo ID including proof of address.
For watches; if it has a box and any paperwork or servicing receipts, please do not forget to bring it along. It makes the watch more appealing to our customers and easier to sell, so we will offer you more money if its included.
For jewellery; if the diamonds came with a certificate, please do not forget to bring it along. It allows us a more accurate assessment of the grading and subsequent value. If your luxury jewellery is branded and you can provide the original gift box or certificates of authenticity this is a bonus. It is appealing to our customers and easier to sell if we have these extras, so we will offer you more money if its included. You are welcome to bring receipts and insurance valuations if you wish, these may be useful, but are not essential.
When you come in to see us, we will be adhering to current Covid Safe measures including the use of masks, a screen and sanitizer. A member of staff will greet you and look through your jewellery assessing the metals, gemstones and condition of the items. The items will be weighed and if required tests may be done in our workshop to confirm the purity of the metal, then a price will be calculated. We pay in you via bank transfer unless cash is preferred, proof of identity is required.
In most of our Gold Arts stores the quote will be given on the spot and a price offered. If there are a large number of items you may have to leave the jewellery with us for an hour or longer in busy periods, so we can measure and assess diamonds, test the metal purity and calculate a price. If your jewellery is something very rare or unusual that requires research, we will advise you at the time. We hope you appreciate that this is the fairest way to give you the best price.
We would hate to miss an opportunity to buy something special, but we are not experts in every field. If you send us an email, we can let you know if it’s something we would be interested in. GA Pawnbrokers our sister company buys and sells an eclectic range of items, including musical instruments and electricals so we can always put you in touch with them.
