Summer holidays are almost here, the weather is warming up and Wimbledon is back. However this summer is going to be a little different once again. Normally our Foreign Exchange department are rushed off their feet selling Euro’s and Dollars to those lucky enough to be going abroad. This year there will be little of that as most Brits will be holidaying much closer to home and seeing what the UK has to offer. This trend has already begun and destination cities like York are buzzing with cosmopolitan cafes, music and laughter and al-fresco street dining that would put any European city to shame. People are in a good mood and really ready for a break and some freedom that felt so far away this time last year. Many people are feeling the need to treat themselves and with money saved from not going abroad, the time seems right to invest into some beautiful jewellery or a nice watch and put the last 12 months behind us.

Rolex – Now Is The Time To Buy…..

Our pre-owned luxury watch business continues to grow and more and more people are trading in old for new or deciding the time is right to own one of these prestigious timepieces. 

Rolex have a restricted number of agencies across the world and each watch takes around a year to manufacture. This creates a waiting list and so with their demand ahead of supply, the price of some of the models just seems to go up and up well beyond their list price with gents sports models leading the charge once again. There are not many luxuries that keep ahead of inflation but here is one area that continues to buck the trend and is well worth the investment if you have the funds.

We price our watches to be competitive with those on-line however all of our luxury watches come with a 2 year guarantee and have a full service and comprehensive refurbishment before they go for retail. It’s a bit like buying a second hand car. You need to use a supplier you can trust and be able to call back to them if ever there is a problem. There are rarely any issues but should there ever be the slightest issue, we will sort if for you immediately and you can be assured you are buying a watch that has been properly checked out and expertly serviced. 

Visit our website or contact your nearest branch to request a viewing and see our extensive selection.

Anyone For Tennis…?

Not everybody is interested in watches. Diamond jewellery sales are really picking up so with Wimbledon in full swing why not treat yourself to a stunning tennis bracelet? 

A stunning diamond line bracelet is a very universal piece of jewellery that can be worn all year round with prices to fit all budgets. I can’t think of a better way of putting the last year behind you and treating yourself to something that will took stunning to wear and last for many generations to come.

For those needing some cash the gold price is still really high right now as it has been all year. If you have any unwanted gold or jewellery now is a great time to turn it into cash so call into your nearest store while it remains strong. With 5 stores in Yorkshire including Seacroft, Shipley, Pontefract, York and Batley you will receive fantastic service and could walk out with your cash in minutes.

Finally, with the restrictions taken off numbers, it’s the ‘Wedding Season’ once again!

Many couples have had to wait for nearly 2 years to get to tie the knot and it looks like it’s finally allowed to happen in the summer months. Diamond engagement rings, wedding bands and stunning bridesmaid gifts are our speciality so call in now or visit our website to see our extensive range. We have a HALF PRICE 50% off offer against many diamond pieces so there has never been a better time to tie to the knot. 

Equally these events can turn out to cost more than you bargained for, especially now the numbers limits are off!  Borrowing a bit of extra cash can make all the difference to having a day to remember. It’s often the mother of the bride who takes a quick loan to make things a little more special because the dad refuses to spend any more! Every loan is completely confidential so he never needs to find out until she sends him in with the ticket to collect the goods 7 months later!
