Reads Services

Design Services

We offer an exceptional service of make-up designs to suit your every need and taste, specialising in engagement rings and wedding bands. Our goldsmiths are the finest in the country and each piece is a masterpiece to treasure



Corporate Gifts

From silver bookmarks to say a quick "thank you", to a fine hallmarked silver salver for the retiring chairman of the board, we offer the ideal and lasting presentation gift. We have South African sterling silver, hallmarked English silver, a variety of local and overseas products, and specialise in meeting each customer's individual needs.


Silver Repairs

Nobody understands better than Read's just how precious your treasures are. Your grandmother's hand mirror or the candlesticks handed down through the generations will be handled with utmost care. Our silversmiths repair and restore most silver items, and we offer a silver replating service for trays, cutlery and other valuable items.




We offer hand engraving by internationally trained engraving artists from initials on a pair of cufflinks to a crest on a signet ring.


Jewellery Repairs

Antique or modern, Read's will repair your precious jewellery using the services of a specialist in the field.




We offer a complete service in evaluating your antique silver and all your jewellery, drawing on our extensive international contacts and many years of experience together with Dave Rossen (gemmologist GIA) who is a certified evaluator (GEMSA) with 30 years in the jewellery business. Valuations can be undertaken at your home, business or at Read's.
