About Us

Boreham Christopher jewellers was formed in 1988 in a shop on Hamilton Road Felixstowe,Suffolk.

Later in the following year  we opened our second shop in Dovercourt Essex on the High Street, opearting from a shop on the corner of Hill Road and the High Street, which we still trade from.

In 1990 we moved our Felixstowe premises across the road into a bigger site, The old site is now occupied by the Oxfam shop.

In 2003 we opened our third branch in the busy Ipswich town.

We have always traded well with a good and happy workforce with a large majority being employed for 10 years plus, With 5 still here from when the company was formed.

We work hard to provide what we feel is a very good service, and have seen the benefits many times seeing faces that keep popping in to see us from all over the world.

The following services are provided at all our branches and explained in our details below:- Old gold purchased, Pawnbroking, Jewellery repairs, Watch repairs, Pearl restringing, Valuations,Battery's fitted while you wait, and many more bench jobs done in store.
