Dear friends and customers,


We hope you and yours are all safe and well. Thank you to anyone who has been kind enough to email us or message us to ask when we will be reopening.



The market owners have sensibly decided that it will be for the best for the Covered Market to re-open as a complete market, including the Market café, on the date when restaurants are allowed to return to trading indoors, on the 17th May.



Because we realise many of you are keen to get your repaired jewellery back, we will as of this week ( beginning 12/4/21) be calling you individually, to arrange a suitable time for us to hand deliver your goods to you.   We will be able to take payment by cash or (depending on signal strength!) card machine.  We will be calling you in date order of oldest to most recently brought in, so please bear with us - we will get to you all eventually!!

We are desperate to see you all and restart trading, but hopefully this later opening date will mean a lot more people will have had the opportunity to be vaccinated and all our lives will be safer as a result.


In the meantime, look after yourselves and we can’t wait to see you all in May. Lots of love, James and the team at J.K Gems Ltd.


Welcome To J.K. Gems

We are located in the popular undercover market in Clacton-On-Sea, where there are also many other shops and stands to browse.  Just a stone’s throw away from the beach, we offer a wide range of jewellery, collectables, watches and quality china. We specialise in Modern, as well as Art Deco, Edwardian and Victorian Gold, Silver and Platinum jewellery – the kind of pieces you simply can’t find in High Street jewellers. You won’t fully appreciate our range of jewellery and watches until you see it in person for yourself, so please feel free to visit us anytime.

We offer probably the most competitive rates in the area for buying and/or part exchanging second-hand jewellery. If you have any pieces of gold or silver lying around the house that you wouldn’t miss, bring them down to us. We hope you will find us friendly, knowledgeable and helpful.

We also specialise in jewellery and watch repairs, as well as our on-site watch battery and strap alterations. We have years of experience under our belts and will do our very best to restore your item back to its former glory.

J.K Gems Antiques

This year, J.K. Gems Ltd launched J.K. Gems Antiques, also based in the Clacton Covered Market, where we buy and sell a large variety of rare, collectable and vintage items.

These include 3000 year old Ancient Egyptian artefacts, early African tribal masks and figures, Ming Dynasty and earlier Chinese figurines and china, vintage toys including clockwork tin plate, teddies and puppets, Edwardian and Victorian Silverware, China including Doulton, Wade, Beswick, Lladro and Goldscheider and vintage enamelled shop signs.  We even have a seven foot tall Napoleonic Guardsman we’ve affectionately christened ‘Frenchie’ on duty, ready to welcome you at the door!

We look forward to seeing you sometime soon.
