Purchasing

Purchasing

Goodwins have been purchasing jewellery and silver from the public for over 60 years. We continue this tradition and can offer to buy or part-exchange most items while you wait.

If something is not suitable for our stock we will endeavour to advise you the best place to take your items to receive the best offer.

The process of selling your items is very simple and discreet. We pay by cheque immediately upon receipt of goods and can allow a period of guaranteed pricing if you wish to think about an offer, there is never any pressure to make a quick decision.

Repairs

Repairs

Goodwins use a range of specialist workshops where craftsmen undertake a full range of repairs on silver and jewellery both antique and modern. Small repairs can be undertaken in house.

We also offer a pearl restringing service and can arrange for stone re-polishing and certification of gemstones. A full estimate is always provided before any work begins.

Engraving

Engraving

Goodwins offer a comprehensive hand-engraving service on all precious metals by hugely experienced engravers with specific expertise.

From seal engraving crests onto rings to initials on a silver napkin ring we will ensure your item is professionally engraved to your specification.

We can suggest styles and fonts or take instructions as to a clients’ preference.
