Address: Kemps Ltd. 33 Union Street, Broadmead, Bristol, BS1 2DJ.



At Kemps, we love purchasing any items you may have hidden away at home. We purchase gold, no matter what the condition is, or size, so have no shame in bringing in what you have to offer. A big part of our store is second hand jewellery, so please  bring in jewellery that you no longer wear, giving it a new lease of life and love to someone else, creating a more sustainable environment, as well as helping you in getting that extra cash. We may surprise you in the offering we have! 

If you are keen to sell with us, but live a distance away, then please do not hesitate to contact us via email with descriptions and clear pictures of the item(s), so that we can begin the process with you.
