Jewellery & Watches at Peter Francis


The market for good jewellery and fine watches is very strong at the present time. At variance with the likes of big furniture and some traditional art, such items are always keenly contested in our sales. Estate consignments and private individual lots are a regular feature of our auctions and often turn up desirable pieces which make their mark, often selling online. Good watches, particularly from leading well-known brands always fare well and military watches are a particular high flyer these days.

Peter Francis Auctioneers offer free verbal valuations for current market value for individual pieces, collections, heirlooms and costume jewellery. Valuations can be carried out at the saleroom or on one of our valuation days where we will be delighted to advise clients of conditions and estimates. Our valuation days are every two weeks on a Friday, and the best time to get jewellery valued is between 10-1 pm, please ring the office for an appointment.

Our fortnightly collector's auctions include a varied selection of Victorian and later jewellery and our Antiques and Fine Art sale is the perfect showcase for antique and modern gold and gem set jewellery.

We are also pleased to offer professional written valuations for insurance, family division and for the purposes of inheritance tax (probate).
