Bramalls Gold Room
Where Quality Jewellery Costs Less!
Opened in 1972 by Michael Bramall working in a one room building next to the family scrap metal business, Bramalls gold room started out selling gold coins and ingots. This changed as the demand for gold jewellery increased, seizing the oppertunity (sic) Michael bramall invested in high quality solid gold jewellery and the business went from strength to strength.
In our 37 years in business we have seen many changes. Fashions and trends that come and go with each passing season. However, something that never changes is our commitment to bring the largest selection of quality gold jewellery to our customers at the best possible prices. Add to this our dedication to give unbeatable customer service and quite simply you have everything you could wish from jewellers.

This is the most blatant example we have yet seen of plagiarism and copyright abuse.
The 10 images of 5 coins on their Gold Coins page are all ours, and stolen from our websites. Without double-checking, it also looks like all the text has been directly lifted from our pages, as have the information and specification tables. Even the names of the images are unchanged from our original names.
Bramall's are in direct competition with us, yet have seen fit to steal our images to do so. This is not only dishonest and unethical, but...
...at this point, polite words to describe what we feel fail us, and we do not wish to publish taboo or offensive words on our website.
We have shown two of our own images so that you can compare, but all the other eight can be found on our websites, and can be instantly recognised for their high quality.
Coins & Images
The following is a list of the coins and images stolen.
We have a very low opinion of other dealers who steal our images, and use them to compete with us. It is dishonest. We could sue these people, possibly for thousands of dollars, but it costs time and money, and even though we would win and be awarded costs, we might not be able to recover the costs if the copyright thieves turned out to be impecunious or insolvent. That's why we have decided to give these crooks some free advertising our our website, something which we do not normally provide even for payment.
Bramalls Gold Room. are not only gold coin & bullion dealers, but "is a National Association of Goldsmiths Full member and as such has met the exacting standards set by the leading trade Association". As such it is surprising then to find it so careless at sourcing its own images, or so lacking in regard for fairness in its dealings with competitors.
In an industry where ethics, trust, and honesty are of paramount importance, it leads to the conclusion that we could not recommend Bramall as a reasonable alternative to us for Sheffield, Yorkshire, or east coast customers.
