How to buy jewellery gifts for Christmas

When shopping for jewellery gifts it’s important to note the following steps to make your life easier.

  • Make sure you start early. It’s already too late. Better luck next year. This lady started her shopping on November 10th!
  • Examine the shop window in meticulous detail. Bring a magnifying glass.
  • Drag an unfortunate shop assistant out into the cold, wind and wet to show him which item you want to buy, before changing your mind and looking at something else.

Don’t worry about price. The piece you like will always be the most expensive.

    Thats a great photo.
    It doesn’t look like Cork at all.
    It could be anywhere.

    Hello,

    I’m trying to track down when my grandfather bought a pocket watch in your shop, around the turn of the 19th century or the early years of the 20th century. It’s a silver pocket watch with the name Hilser Brothers, Grand Parade, Cork,on the face and it says that it is Swiss made. The hallmarks have the following information: the no 925, a tulip like symbol and a large letter N in a square and the initials GD and the no 48491 under the initials. Would you have a record of the sale of this watch to a Mr Daniel Cronin?

    Unfortunately I don’t have a digital camera so I can’t send you a photo.

    Yours faithfully,

    Michael Lavin
