Dominic Sakakini, who founded the business in the town’s Carfax 13 years ago has thrown his support behind the Readers’ Choice award.
Over the years Sakakini has expanded and during the recession it branched out to offer a pawn-broking service.
He also has The Jewellery Doctor page on Facebook, which offers advice and information. If you are thinking about buying a piece of jewellery you can get tips on what questions to ask the seller and how to tell whether you are getting a good deal. The Facebook page has received more than 500 likes since it was launched.
This free service is part of Sakakini’s mission to educate people about jewellery.
It is this and his support with Business Matters which underline his interest in the community.
He said: “We really feel part of the community, we have an open door policy and are happy for people to walk in and chat to us.”
Last year Sakakini launched the Diamond Club, offering a dazzling alternative for potential investments. Members get exclusive investment opportunities, as well as discounts. Sakakini works closely with the diamond traders, cutting out many layers of middle-men and ensuring customers get the best wholesale prices.
Dominic is an exclusive member of the RAPAPORT – the International Diamond Traders Association, which gives him access to all the world’s diamonds at wholesale prices, and prides himself on being able to pass on the keenest prices to his clients, through his unique Sakakini Diamond Club.
Sakakini Jewellers also boast the largest collection of stunning wedding rings in the county, including bespoke designs.
Dominic writes expert articles on diamonds for the local press in the local region and is an after dinner speaker at events.
