Jewellery, Watches & Silver

Our Jewellery Department caters for all manner of jewellery – from antique to modern.  Regular dedicated sales are held for jewellery from the affordable to extremely valuable and rare pieces.

Our Department is on-hand to give up to date auction estimates in respect of your silver/platinum/gold, jewellery. 

If you are paying to insure your jewellery which is not being used why not consider realising the market value in one of our specialist sales?  Items are appraised using up-to date testing equipment and weighed where necessary.

We also offer formal written valuations for insurance/probate/family division/asset purposes at attractive rates based on a minimum and hourly charge.  Clear and concise documents are prepared to keep for your records and to send to your insurance company/solicitor to be used in the event of a claim or legal purposes.

Watches

The market for collectable and luxury watches is a growing area.  In response to this demand, our watch department can advise on the value of all manner of watches – from antique to modern, including military issue watches. 

Specific watch brands we handle include Rolex, Jaeger Le Coultre, IWC, Omega, Breitling, Cartier, Longines, Hermes, Blancpain, Bulgari, Tag Heuer, Patek Philippe, Bulova, Maurice Lacroix, military issue watches and Vacheron to name a few.

Recent highlights include the successful sale of a Lichfield watch collection (including vintage Rolexes, Jaeger Le Coultre, Omega, military IWC and other desirable watches) discovered in a loft which attracted worldwide interest and subsequently totalled over £40,000. 

Silver

Our Silver Department deals with all of the hallmarked silverwares, (and some of the plated wares) we handle - from modern flatware to antique hollow wares.

Silver is weighed and researched where necessary - such as identifying the maker’s marks which can add value in some instances.  From proven past sale results it is evident that some silver wares are worth much more than scrap so it is worth seeking our advice.

Recent highlights include a Victorian silver tea set on tray by celebrated silversmiths The Barnards at £3,000 and a rare nineteenth century ‘Historismus’ cup at £8,000.  A private collection of antique silver vinaigrettes and scent bottles sold recently for £26,000.

We are delighted to provide clients considering selling with the current auction value of their silver - from a single item to an entire haul.
