Christmas Cash

Diary Of A PawnbrokerFeatures

Christmas is an exciting time but this year we will have to accept its going to be a little bit different. Normally there are parties and celebrations with friends and family but this year we may have to rely on a ZOOM conference call with a bottle of wine or beer for company!

However, the bright lights and Christmas trees will still happen and people will be excited about the very essence of Christmas – showing someone that you really care.

This year it is possibly more important than ever, and the receiving of a nice gift will mean so much more given the miserable year we have all had to endure through no fault of our own. 

So the big question is, what can I buy that will really mean something?

There is no finer gift to make someone’s face light up at Christmas than jewellery. Equally, you may want to simply treat yourself and buy something you have always wanted to make this Christmas special!

Jewellery is not the kind of gift you simply buy online and expect to feel and look the same in real life. You really need to see the item and feel its weight and see the life that the diamonds radiate to really invest in a piece of luxury jewellery.

However, you don’t need to use the internet – at Brown and Gold and Christopher Brown Jewellers we will help make your shopping this Christmas easy with a one stop shop for all your needs. We allow you to feel the items and try them on (in a Covid friendly manner of course), so you can really find that perfect piece. With 7 branches across the North we will do all the hard work and searching for you and help source that perfect piece to save you all the travelling and the time.

Here are some Christmas present ideas that may just help you……



Now is a great time to invest in a Rolex or luxury watch if finances allow. The price of these luxury time pieces continues to grow and grow and you are investing in an asset that will probably appreciate in value no matter what the world throws at you. All our watches are fully serviced and authenticated and carry a 2 year warranty that most retailers do not offer on-line so now is the perfect time to buy a preowned Rolex. 

If Rolex are not your thing or your budget does not allow, then the trend is back to wear yellow gold jewellery. Curb bracelets, signet rings and heavy belcher chains are back with a passion and look fantastic on your man. New prices for the anything made in 9ct gold are astronomical right now however pre-owned prices are a bargain! We have a huge selection of 9ct gent’s jewellery in all weights and sizes – all lovingly refurbished and half the price of the new equivalent.


No matter how many times she says ‘I don’t want anything special this year, just a card will do…’, you know this is not true. Come the big day, nothing will make your partner happier than a surprise piece of jewellery or a lovely watch because she will know you think she’s worth it!

Diamonds have always been a girl’s best friend so why not treat her to something special like a pair of diamond earrings, a tennis bracelet or a new diamond or coloured stone ring. There is still time to commission a bespoke piece of jewellery that will melt her heart. It doesn’t have to cost the earth. We can use your existing gold or diamonds to remodel something she no longer wares or convert something passed down into something she will treasure forever. Alternatively, if she is buying you a Rolex, hadn’t you better do the same!


It doesn’t have to be diamond but we have a children’s range of diamond jewellery, set in silver that is just beautiful. Equally, if they are that bit older what about starting their jewellery collection with a lovely diamond pendant, fashion silver range or their first watch?

Brown and Gold jewellers and Seacroft and Batley and Christopher Brown Jewellers at York, Shipley and Pontefract have an amazing offer on this Christmas.


There are some stunning ranges to choose from to suit all tastes and ages. Earrings, pendants, rings and bracelets all styled out of sterling silver and set with a selection of precious stones and artistic styles. Call into your nearest store and make your shopping this Christmas as easy as 1, 2, 3!

So, whatever you wish for this Christmas, come and visit our clean and friendly stores where we will do all the hard work for you. With Half Price Managers Specials on offer and 3 for 2 on ALL silver jewellery, you won’t find a better offer on-line!
