Andrew Smith Jewellers have a range of services.
Scrap Gold and Jewellery Purchased
We buy in your old unwanted jewellery. Please bring your items to the shop and we will offer a competitive price to buy your unwanted gold for cash. Damaged and broken goods, odd earrings etc will have a scrap value.
Also we are particularly interested in purchasing fine gem set jewellery, diamonds, antique and vintage items. Andrew Smith Jewellers offer a very straightforward 'no fee' service. Bring your jewellery to us and if the item is of interest to purchase, after a short appraisal period we will provide you with an offer. This service is without obligation and valid for seven days.
Your unwanted items may be worth more if you part exchange. We can calculate a fair part exchange value for your jewellery while you're trying the new piece on.

Jewellery Repair and Restoration
Andrew Smith Jewellers can oversee the repair and restoration of most items of quality jewellery. Prior to any repair work we will always check the overall condition of an item and supply an estimate. Estimates can also be provided for your insurance company where a claim for accidental damage is being made.
With a valuation from Andrew Smith Jewellers you can be sure your jewellery is protected. In the event of loss or theft a detailed valuation provides proof of ownership and ensures an accurate and fair replacement.
All items sold by Andrew Smith Jewellers with a value in excess of £1000 are accompanied by a complimentary insurance valuation document.
We recommend having your jewellery checked regularly for wear and tear and your insurance company will normally request that your jewellery is re-valued every three years. All items sold by Andrew Smith Jewellers can be re-valued quickly and professionally for a small fixed fee.
We are also able to value other jewellery in your possession, although we don't normally value items bought overseas. We will re-value items bought elsewhere in the UK.
All valuations are conducted on the premises and take approximately two weeks. Each item is photographed with a detailed description, we charge £20 for plain items, £35 for gem set jewellery & £50 to value watches (subject to the work involved per item). All jewellery is cleaned in the process.
