Countdown To Christmas

Just 7 weeks to go and it will be Christmas. What are we preparing for this season? Well, we’ve just bought in some beautiful new jewellery for you to choose for you loved ones including a very stunning natural yellow diamond ring, some sterling silver miniature animals made by our silversmith Lexi Dick, rubies, sapphires and emeralds, amethysts, moonstones and many more. Also among the new stock is a selection of rare Australian black opals. Those of you who came to our exhibition back in October will remember seeing a huge variety of loose stones and jewellery set with these very unusual gems – if you missed the exhibition please take time to pop in and see the collection and be tempted to buy for Christmas gifts – we are the sole distributors for Leisha Designs in the south-east. You may also know that we now stock an extensive range of fine porcelain from the houses of Meissen, Ludwigsburg and Nymphenburg to name but a few. In fact we have the largest selection of fine german porcelain in the country, so please pop and see what we have. Most of our products can be personalised to make your gift that little bit extra special, so if you are intending to have something engraved, embossed, etched or painted please give yourself enough time to have it completed before Christmas. All gift wrapping is free when you purchase your gifts with us. We will begin decorating the shop next week so you may find us in a little disarray for a few days. We have adjusted our opening hours a little for the Christmas period – we will now be open Tuesday – Saturday 9.30 – 5pm and will no longer be closed for lunch until further notice, we will remain closed on Sunday’s and Mondays. We will be closed from Sunday 23rd December up to and including Friday 28th when normal opening times resume on Saturday 29th. Something we haven’t done for a long time either is to have a late night shopping evening! So on Thursday 13th December (for ONE DAY ONLY) we will be open from 9.30 through to 7pm, so please come along and join in the Christmas cheer with carols, raffle, special offers and discounts (TBC) available for this one day only. Don’t forget to check out our websites -www.payneandsonjewellers.co.uk and payneandson.com for some great Christmas gift inspiration, and if you’re looking for something in particular please give us a call and we will do our very best to find your perfect gift.
