ring sizing
Sizing

Whether your ring does not fit anymore or you just want to wear your ring on a different finger or hand, you can have your ring re-sized to fit. Anytime we size a ring, we also check any stone settings for wear and we’ll advise you if any additional work is needed. Pricing of ring resizing will vary depending on the scope of sizing, the thickness of the ring, type of metal and number of stones that a ring has which may need adjustments. Typically, there is a charge per each size the ring is being enlarged by.

Soldering
Soldering

Almost every type of jewellery is susceptible to damage. You may have a necklace that is broken, a crack in a ring, a broken link in your bracelet or a set of earrings that have come apart. Soldering is a straight forward and standard repair process in most cases. Whenever we solder your jewellery, the piece will be completely inspected for any wear or impending breaks in all areas.

Re-tipping
Claw or Prong Re-tipping, Sone Setting

Although the precious metals that are used to make all different types of jewellery are strong, they do start to wear over the years. The claws and prongs that hold the stones and diamonds in place are made very small for aesthetic purposes and are usually in a place that takes the brunt of the wear. Therefore, they need to be tended to by a goldsmith every couple of years to ensure that your gemstones and diamonds are safe. If you are unsure whether you need this service, drop by anytime for a free quote. Also, stone setting is a fine art, mastered by only the most skilled jewellers who specialise in gem setting. Setting a stone in a ring or piece of jewellery is all about ensuring the correct placement to secure the gem and achieve maximum brilliance.

New Shanks
New Shanks

In the same way that claws and prongs can wear away, the shank (the bottom half of the ring) also takes a lot of wear. Over time, the shank of a ring can become thin and the ring itself can take on an oval or egg like shape due to the lack of strength left in the worn gold shank. In many cases, the effect of the oval and egg shape also leads to stone loss because the claws and prongs are pulled apart as the ring changes shape. A simple fix in this case is to make a new bottom and replace the worn one. Once complete, there is no visible evidence that a repair has been done.

Parts Replacement
Parts Replacement

Jewellery often has moveable parts that take significantly more wear than the rest of the piece. Examples of parts are clasps on necklaces and bracelets, etc. There are also areas on a piece of jewellery that can take a lot of friction due to movement and may need replacement. Examples are an earring post, a pendant bale (the part that the chain goes through) and small rings that attach clasps to a piece of jewellery. Inspection of your jewellery by our staff is always complimentary.
