Frequently Asked Questions

What is the best way to sell my unwanted jewellery to you?

The quickest way is come into any of our Gold Arts stores and show us your jewellery or watches. We can inspect the jewellery in person using tools such as a loupe, scales, metal testing equipment etc. and give a guaranteed price and payment straight away.

If you are further afield than Sussex then the Online Quote Form on this page is quick and easy to fill out, with the option to upload images. We will provide you with a free no obligation quote based on the information you can provide. A follow up email will detail the next steps to selling your items to us.

What is the best way to sell my watch to you?

Our new Online Quote Form on this page is quick and easy to fill out, with the option to upload images.

If you prefer you can email us at Brighton@goldarts.co.uk with details of the brand, model, year, condition (working / recently serviced / broken / damaged etc) and if you have the box and papers. A photo is always helpful but not essential.


The form or email allows us to quickly assess if your watch is something we are looking for and we can give you an estimated price. If you are happy with our guide price, then we can arrange a day convenient for you to pop into one of our stores or post it to us.


If you prefer you can come into any of our retail branches during opening hours. We cannot guarantee our watch buyer will be available, but we can always take a few details and contact you again.

Do you buy broken jewellery and watches?

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.

How do you pay me for jewellery, watches and scrap gold?

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.

Do I need to bring provide anything other than the jewellery / watch?

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.

I want to sell my jewellery / watch, what can I expect to happen in store?

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.

Will I have to leave my jewellery with you and wait for a quote?

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.

Do you buy other items of value such as fine art, antique collectables, luxury sports cars etc?

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.

Do you offer Pawnbroking or Cash Loans against jewellery and watches?

No, we do not offer this service in our Gold Arts stores. We do offer this at our sister company GA Pawnbrokers. For more information visit www.gapawnbrokers.com
