Free valuations of jewellery, watches, gold and silver in Tamworth

A NEW team of jewellery and watch specialists is all set to unlock the mysteries of Tamworth people’s trinkets, treasures and heirlooms.

Richard Winterton Auctioneers has been providing Tammies with their own Antiques Roadshow moments at The Tamworth Auction Rooms since opening in Church Street during October 2021.

Now the family firm has announced further expansion to offer a comprehensive free service to evaluate all types of jewellery, watches, gemstones, gold, silver, platinum and other precious metals from April 19.

“We have a lot of regular clients in the Tamworth area and have made so many new friends since opening up here in the ancient capital of Mercia,” said watch specialist Ben Winterton.

“Now we can’t wait to add another string to the bow of this much-loved Grade II listed town centre building by bringing an expanding team of experts right to your doorstep to discover some hidden treasures.

“Whether it’s a Georg Jenson brooch, Pandora bracelet or a 3ct diamond ring, we’re happy to assist with all treasures and trinkets be they modern, vintage, antique or organic.”
