About Gems

Gems Jewellers has added many new stock lines over the years, many exclusive to Gems in Dumfries and south of Scotland. We stock a huge selection of silver and gold chains, gold bracelets, diamond rings, dress rings and wedding rings.

Antique and second hand jewellery is a big favourite with Gems customers and this has the added value of part-exchange. You can take in your old, unwanted or even broken jewellery to part exchange for something new or different. Watch batteries and straps are fitted while you wait and Gems offer a full jewellery repair service as well as engraving.

Gems Jewellers have lots to choose from for all occasions including birthdays, engagements, weddings, anniversaries, retirements, leaving gifts, mothers day, fathers day, Christmas or just a treat for yourself.

Gems History

Gems Jewellers opened in August 1993 in the Loreburne Shopping Centre, Dumfries.

After six successful years Gems expanded and moved to a much bigger shop on the outside of the Shopping Centre on the High Street, 100 yards down from Marks and Spencer.

Owner David Gauld originally from the Glasgow area has a wealth of experience in the jewellery trade having worked for many of the larger multiples, McGowans, J. Weir & Sons, H. Samuels, Fred Hill and Symingtons.

The four staff at Gems Jewellers in Dumfries have over 60 years jewellery experience and are more than willing to help you find that special jewellery gift or repair.

Antique and Second-hand Jewellery

At Gems you can also find a selection of pre-owned and antique jewellery which offers real value for money and many unusual items of jewellery. Gems Jewellers have lots of second hand jewellery coming into the Dumfries shop every week from part exchange deals and this department is one of the busiest. When you see something you like, make sure you don’t miss out as these items tend to go very quickly.

Football Jewellery

Another gift that’s a bit different is football jewellery and is very popular for football fans all over the country. Gems Jewellers stock all the major teams including Queen of the South, Rangers, Celtic, Arsenal, Aston Villa, Everton, Manchester City, Liverpool, West Ham, Chelsea, Tottenham Hotspur and Nottingham Forest.
