We would like to purchase your items of unwanted jewellery. This can be an old broken chain, a vintage diamond ring or an unwanted watch.

We buy some items at the current melt gold price. If the items are broken or have no re sale value then we will offer the going rate on that day. Please note this price does change on a daily basis. Those items are then sent away immediately to be melted down.

However we don’t purchase every item at the scrap rate. If you have a good piece of jewellery that clearly wouldn’t be scrapped then we will offer you a fair price for it. We buy these items to re sell in our shop, sell on our website or it may be sent to auction.

WE ARE ALSO PURCHASING  pre-owned watches . An area that is growing for us.  We would be interested in purchasing any good quality watch from you, eg Rolex, Omega, Cartier, Longines, Gucci, Breitling, Tag Heuer, Ebel etc. A box with papers adds a lot to the value!

We can arrange a private appointment if you would like to sell your items. This will be in our upstairs showroom which has a private seated area. You will be met by one of our Directors


We can also sell your jewellery on your behalf. By doing this you will obtain a higher price for your jewellery than selling it straight to us or sending it to auction. We will place the item in our shop at a price both parties agree on and if it sells we take a 25% commission (we have to take this amount as if the item develops a fault after it is sold we have to guarantee it). Of course there is no guarantee how quick the item will sell, but this should generate a better return for you in the long run. Please note there is a £25 non refundable admin charge for this service, which covers insurance whilst the item is with us. (Currently this charge has been dropped- so you can list with us FREE OF CHARGE)
We can also list on our website www.vintagetom.co.uk. We are highly 
successful with this way of selling and indeed sell all around the world. Call for a private appointment 01373 462089.

We are also able to list your items on the antiques platform website  www.sellingantiques.co.uk. This is the country’s leading platform for dealers in antiques with hundreds of thousands of sales each year. Your item must be pre-1950 to qualify for this website.

If any of the above is of interest to you please visit our shop with your item(s) or call us on 01373 462089 or 01373 462090 or email us at contact@charleshart.co.uk
