Unable to find that special piece of jewellery that truly reflects your personal style?

Whether you have a clear vision of what you want, or are in need of inspiration, our bespoke jewellery design service will guide you through every step of the process.

We begin with a discussion about your tastes, preferences and budget. Photographs and sketches are always helpful at this point, but certainly not essential.

From there we offer advice and guidance with regard to your selection of gemstones and precious metals, culminating in detailed sketches produced by our designer.

Once your design has been chosen, photo-realistic CAD images are rendered and an estimate is raised for your consideration. Finally, your design is brought to life using a combination of traditional craftsmanship and cutting-edge technology, resulting in a beautiful, uniquely personal piece of jewellery.

If you own treasured items of jewellery and watches, we recommend that you have them valued for insurance purposes in case of loss, theft, or accidental damage. In order to offer cover, most insurance companies will require a detailed up to date valuation from a reputable jeweller. At Cope Jewellers we offer an expert professional valuation and appraisal service.

Andrew Cope, who has over 30 years of experience and is a qualified gemmologist, is on hand at our Nottingham branch to give you advice. To make an appointment please call 0115 947 2692. Most of the valuations we carry out are for insurance replacement purposes and are done on the premises. All insurance valuation documents are thoroughly detailed and supplied in duplicate with images of the items. 

For probate valuations and very unusual items we will arrange for an appropriate specialist to carry out the valuation. Our Newark and Worksop branches use Safeguard, the appraisal division of the Birmingham Assay Office, for valuations.

If you are unlucky enough to suffer loss or damage to any of your watches or jewellery we offer post loss and repair estimates for your insurance company.

If you have a quality Swiss watch that you are thinking about selling, we may be interested in making an offer for it. The original box and any paperwork will add to the value. If you are unlucky enough to suffer loss or damage to any of your watches or jewellery we offer post loss and repair estimates for your insurance company.

Watch Servicing & Refurbishment

Your watch is a precision instrument, running continuously, all day, every day. In order to maintain a good level of performance every watch requires periodic servicing. The regularity of the service varies from brand to brand, and depends on the watch’s age and the type of movement. However, most manufacturers recommend that a routine service is carried out every four to six years.

Servicing and repairs are undertaken by our highly skilled and experienced watchmakers. Alternatively, we can arrange to have your watch returned to the manufacturer, or to an accredited service centre.

Services include:
Replacement batteries, case seals and water resistance testing
Servicing of quartz and mechanical watches
Refurbishment of watch cases and bracelets

In addition, the following services can be undertaken on site at our dedicated service department located in our Nottingham branch:

Replacement batteries
Watch bracelet alterations
Ultrasonic cleaning of watch cases and bracelets
Replacement watch straps

Simply bring your watch in need of attention to the Service Department at our Nottingham branch, or call into one of our branches at Newark and Worksop for further advice and information.
