As designer / makers we craft a lot of our jewellery in house. We often get asked to help with repairs and remodelling of jewellery. Although repairs are not our core business we are able to help our customer with most enquiries. Some we can do in house and some pieces will need expertise and specialist tools, especially when diamonds / precious stones are involved. Jewellery repairs are never straight forward and each piece needs to be assessed on an individual basis in order to assess the procedure needed the execution of the repair. If the repair can not be done 'in house', we have a black book of extraordinary crafts(wo)men and specialists who can assist with expert skills and advise.
What Can We Do
We can repair any precious metal jewellery, but not costume or base metal jewellery or watches of any kind.
Jewellery also needs regular maintenance. Claws can wear down or ring settings can become loose over time meaning there is a risk of losing a precious stone
Some work can be carried out on site and we are also assisted by the expertise of gemologists, setters, mounters, engravers and stringers who work out of London.
Our expert jewellers can give you an assessment and an indication of work that might be needed.
