WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW

This LONG TERM consignment service can take up to 12 months & costs from just £100 upfront plus an agreed additional commission payable at the point of sale.

If your jewellery is of sufficient quality, style and condition we will endeavour to achieve the best possible second hand retail prices, which means that you could receive more than would be obtained by selling at auction or through the trade. A remounting service is also available to modernise older or less saleable pieces.

Our commission is a fixed percentage of the proceeds, agreed before sale and does not vary regardless of sale price.

The jewellery will be displayed in our showroom and advertised on the website as well as other media channels. All of your jewellery and watches will be fully insured whilst on our premises.
