A significant proportion of the jewellery we sell is made and designed by us. Should you wish to commission a bespoke piece of jewellery, we are able to offer suggestions and ideas on style and suitability. Bespoke engagement and wedding rings are particularly popular.
You may have your own design in which case we will quote and offer practical tips as necessary. Once we have agreed upon a design, we will show you a choice of gemstones before we start work. Once authorised, we will take a deposit and contact you immediately your jewellery design is completed.If you are looking for design inspiration we can help. Years of design experience coupled with a significant design library are the catalysts that will set you on your way to creating a jewellery masterpiece that is uniquely yours.We invite you to visit our store and sit with us. Together we can create a design as individual as you.
Restoration, Remodelling and Remakes
Jewellery has been used, not only for adornment, but to commemorate life’s milestones for centuries. Whether worn daily or just for special occasions, whether a gift, a personal purchase or an heirloom, jewellery will, over time, wear and require the attentions of a skilled jeweller.- You may choose to have that heirloom restored to its former glory – we can help.
- You may choose to have that dated or unwanted item remodelled or remade. We can help. We use your existing gemstones to create a completely new setting, to create a design of your choosing. For example, we can remodel a ring into a brooch, pendant or earrings.
We can source replacements for missing or lost gemstones or match a gemstone for colour and size. We will also re-cut or polish an existing stone. To discuss your requirements please contact us and make an appointment. We treat all items left with us with extreme care and all items are fully covered by our insurance whilst in our care.
We do minor quality watch repairs, servicing most brands at competitive prices. Batteries for all quartz watches are available while you wait. Be assured that the utmost care will be taken with your precious timepiece. Visit us today for a new battery, free repair estimate or, better yet, a brilliant new timepiece for your collection.
Jewellery Care & Cleaning
Proper care and handling of your jewellery can help it maintain its beauty and sparkle for years to come. We recommend an annual inspection to promote early detection of wear and tear, which may assist in avoiding gem loss, clasp failure, etc.
All jewellery should be treasured and worn with care as an adornment. Avoid contact with household cleaners or chemicals, chlorine, bleach, salt and chlorinated water, perfumes, hairspray and cosmetics. Do not wear jewellery when showering or cleaning, and never wear jewellery to bed or while participating in sport, as this may cause kinking, snagging or breakage.
Even diamonds, although durable, may chip if impacted. Pearls should be restrung once a year. Store jewellery separately, to avoid tangling and knocking together, and use a jewellery roll when travelling. We offer specialist cleaning products for use at home, with advice on which gems and jewellery are suitable for these products, or we suggest a soft toothbrush and a mild detergent.
