Repairs Price Guide

We often get inquiries about the cost of remodelling or repairing older jewellery, and love bringing worn or damaged jewellery back to it's beautiful best. Our preference is for a jeweller to actually see your piece of jewellery or watch in person. However, you can easily email us your jewellery photos - ideally a good close up - and repair request and we will give you a free quote right away.

Any unusual requests?

We take pride in everything we do and although we predominantly produce fine jewellery, we do get some unusual requests too.

One that springs to mind was a case for a bullet recovered from the Battle of Waterloo. Another was a silver scent bottle designed for a television personality. We like the unusual - in fact we thrive on it.
