Is a Rolex a good investment?

What is a Rolex?

A Rolex is a luxury brand of watch, while also being arguably one of the most sought after commodities across the world, having built up a reputation for being a premium product that makes a statement both on the eye, as well as being a very strong investment opportunity. There are numerous accounts of people selling on their Rolex’s years later for a staggering profit, making it a serious contender to consider.

To quote from their own website: “Rolex watches are crafted with scrupulous attention to detail.” and this is apparent, as they have a huge selection of luxury watches in a variety of ranges, allowing you to find something that is perfect for you, or even as a thoughtful gift for birthdays, anniversaries and the festive season to name but a few.

Our Experience with Rolex Watches

When it comes to Rolex watches, we love to pair the perfect watch with the perfect person, and this is what we did just last week, especially during these very uncertain times.

To keep up with our activity as well as our current stock, like us on facebook. Alternatively, if you have any questions on where to get started or to check if we currently have any Rolex watches in stock, please feel free to contact us.


Doing all we can to be COVID-19 Safe

We would like to reassure our clients that we are taking the necessary steps to make our store and products COVID-19 safe.

Our Director Joanne Turner has recently been on a StoreSafe COVID-19 Awareness Course and the attached certificate is now on display in store.

The StoreSafe COVID-19 Awareness Course has been developed from the 4 key principles that the National Association of Jewellers has issued via it’s iterative Coronavirus guidance encompassing:

Start Safe – Essential information for employees and guidance on travelling to store
Store Safe – Building on ‘normal’ requirements from HSE
Task Safe – Assessing tasks against social distancing regulations
Home Safe – Leaving store safely

Our new LED UV Sterilisation equipment has also arrived!

This means that the health and safety of our staff and customers alike is further assured, with both incoming and outgoing pieces of jewellery and repairs all being put through this process.

We are proud members of the National Association of Jewellers (NAJ) and appreciate their advice and guidance during these times.

Did you know that one of the many services GemPort can provide is medal mounting?

Did you know that one of the many services GemPort can provide is medal mounting?


If you, a relative or friend are the proud owners of medals, we can show case them for you so that they can be remembered and admired for many years to come.

The owner of these medals wanted to cherish his Grandfathers memory who was one of our brave soldiers from WWII.
You can see the difference in the before and after images. 

They are now not just an Heirloom, it’s also Heritage. #proud #memories #memorabilia #heritage #warmedals #framed #gemportjewellery

The Family Business Awards is a non profit initiative. This is the seventh year they have been held. Thanks to the amazing generosity of sponsors, the awards raise a huge amount of money for charity whilst recognising the many achievements of family business from right across the Midlands.

The official Family Business Awards Finalist documents arrived this week and we’re absolutely thrilled

Manufacturing Excellence – sponsored by The Wilson Organisation

The selection process is quite involved, with initial entry, shortlisting and choosing finalists, then interviews with the judges and sometimes a site visit too. Wish us luck!

Make a note of November the 17th in your diary. It is the awards ceremony and dinner, when we join the other finalists at a glittering, glamorous night where we find out who won!

Here’s is a video clip from last years awards highlights!

The award for Manufacturing Excellence looks in depth at the structure and nature of the business itself. It takes into account how family values and family members have guided the development of the business, the board and ownership structure and how decisions are made. Other important factors include personal development, innovation, overcoming adversity and commitment to the community.

GemPort Jewellery has always played an active part in our local community. It’s something we truly believe in. We’re proud of our Black Country heritage, sponsor local sports teams and social events and have many charitable interests.

Our community is very important to us and as family and friends we overcome adversity together.
