Recycling has become part of our everyday culture these days and interestingly people are beginning to apply the practice to their jewellery!

With gold prices remaining strong many customers have decided to ‘spring clean’ their jewellery collections and bring the items to us for a valuation. Why leave your gold or diamond jewellery sat in a box when they could be helping your cash-flow instead?

Gold-cycling has become the theme of recent months and while some customers have used their items for loans, not wanting to part with their goods, others have sold their jewellery and watches outright and used the money for holidays, pay off bills or buy new jewellery.

These days however we don’t all have gold or jewellery and we have increased the types of products we lend on to reflect this. Mobile phones, tablets and games consoles are the biggest assets many of us now own so we now lend on these with a 28 day buyback service which is becoming very popular.

So whether you wish to recycle your gold, watches or mobile, call in today and get an instant assessment. You will be pleasantly surprised with how much you can get!

Brown and Gold have branches at Seacroft, Batley and Christopher Brown jewellers and pawnbrokers in Shipley. Call us on 0113 2656029 or visit our website for further details.

Chris Brown


A diamond signifies love, eternity, strength and everlasting affection. No wonder it’s the stone of choice for engagement rings and for people to show when they really care.

Over the last few months we have made dozens of unique and bespoke diamond pieces of jewellery with some pretty special stones.

Since Christmas we have sold 2 sets of diamond stud earrings each with over 4 carats of diamonds per pair (2 carats per stone). They are stunning stones and each has been individually valued at over £70,000 per pair.

We have also sourced, designed and set a most special stone for one lucky customer. A ‘D’ colour diamond (the best you can get), weighing over 2 carats and with virtually no inclusions. This stone alone attracted a valuation of over £75,000 but the price paid for the completed ring was less than £30,000.


You don’t have to travel to the mainstream city jewellers to find an amazing quality diamond; you can find one right here in Seacroft, Batley or Shipley and for a fraction of the price.

All our stones are personally selected directly from the diamond cutters and chosen because of their stunning quality, excellent cut and fantastic value. Appointments can be made at any of our branches for a personal consultation and we guarantee we will offer the very best price.


Brown & Gold jewellers at Seacroft and Batley and Christopher Brown Jewellers and Shipley also stock a stunning range of pre-owned diamonds and jewellery that offer fantastic value for money with prices upto 50% off their new value.


If you already own your own stone but do not like the design of the setting, why not let us redesign the piece with you and make a stunning piece of jewellery exactly how you want it. We can reset your own stone or add others to it if required and you will have a timeless piece of jewellery that you will treasure forever.

Brown & Gold Jewellers in Seacroft and Batley and Christopher Brown Jewellers in Shipley all offer this service. You can book an appointment to discuss your personal or bespoke jewellery requirements with myself directly or by visiting one of our stores and you will get a really honest appraisal of what we can do and the help to design exactly what you have dreamed of.
