Fine old silver and jewellery. Business gifts. Decorative accessories. Repairs and valuations.
Read’s, in the heart of Rosebank, is a family owned business dealing in antique and fine jewellery and silverware.
There is always a demand for beautiful, unique items which is what we at Read’s are renowned for. We are in contact with international and local dealers to ensure that we find the piece that speaks to you. Our shop caters for all discerning tastes from exquisite Victorian pearls and diamond jewellery to hallmarked English silver and antique and modern Judaica. May it be a christening or birthday gift, corporate or wedding gift, bar mitzvah or bat mitzvah celebration, we will have the perfect present.
Read’s has also expanded to include modern fine jewellery with a large emphasis on make-up designs for engagement and wedding rings. With the help of our qualified gemmologist, you can choose the perfect stone for any design you desire. Coupled with this, our goldsmiths are the finest in the country, making sure that your piece is a gem to treasure.
Forget the notion that pearls are old fashioned. We have the widest selection, in Johannesburg, of beautiful pearls in every style and colour to suit your look, be it for your wedding day or to wear with your jeans and heels. We also offer the service of cleaning and restringing these little, natural beauties.
South African designer jewellery is garnering world wide attention and we at Read’s are ecstatic to be involved in spreading their amazing talent. The combination of their South African roots and design inspiration sets them apart from their international contemporaries and makes it exciting for us to watch the directions they venture into.
We take pride in our exceptional service and maintaining our personal relationships with our customers. Time and a lazy afternoon is all you need to appreciate what we have to offer.
