Redesign



We specialise in re-designing old pieces of jewellery, old diamonds and old gemstones that are no longer worn. Remodel your old jewellery and give your it a new lease of life. Recreate the worn jewel into a different style of jewellery. Remodelling is embraced when a precious treasure has been inherited and is not stylish.
Maybe the jewel is damaged beyond repair or a family piece needs to be modernised to suit your taste.  Remodel a family heirloom ring into an engagement ring, pendant or earrings etc. Remodelling your jewellery, remaking your ring into a different style allows you to recaptivate the sentimental value of the adornment.

We remodel & remount all styles of rings, earrings and pendants in precious metals including 18ct yellow, rose or white gold, platinum and palladium.

We can also handmake jewellery from specific drawings and artwork and with our meticulous attention to detail we will create you a beautiful piece of timeless jewellery.

That's why we have a jewellery repair service where we're glad to keep alive those special pieces that someone along the way has given to you or a member of your family.

Polishing


Bring your jewellery back to life.  Weather it's Silver, Gold or Platinum we have a full range of polishing compounds, brushes and expertise.  Sterling silver and gold naturally tarnish with oxygen and light.  And with everyday wear and tear, your jewellery will pick up scratches over time.  With our extensive workshop, we can polish most items in the same day.

Our polishing services are not recommended for costume jewellery as our thorough cleaning processes might take off the plating.

Please Contact Us or call into the shop for any enquiries.

Claw Retipping


When a stone is claw set, the claw is more exposed to everyday wear and tear as it is set over the stone.  
Long term wear can result in the claw wearing and sometimes breaking off which will make the possibility of losing a stone more likely. If claws have become excessively worn or have broken off this is when they may need replacing or re-tipping.

It is recommended that this be done to any other claws on the ring as the repair will be very noticeable.  A broken claw will need to be replaced by filing down and replacing with a complete new claw.

For peace of mind any diamond ring should be checked regularly for its condition by a quality jeweller.

Please Contact Us or call into the shop for any enquiries.

Rhodium Plating


Has your White Gold Jewellery lost its shine? Rhodium plating has a highly reflective white surface and gives a brilliant shine but over time this surface may become dull and wear away. We can restore your jewellery to look like new again - rhodium plating gives your white gold jewellery that mirror shine finish again. Our Rhodium white gold plating service can also be completed within the hour (if needed) - please call ahead if you require 1 hour service as the rhodium tank needs an hour or so to heat up, thanks.

When we take in a piece of white gold which needs to be re-plated. We carefully asses the condition of your piece of jewellery and if there are any other recommendations in regards to the repair we will let you know first.

The process involves stripping off any old Rhodium and polishing the metal making sure there are no impurities. A thin layer of rhodium is then electro-plated onto the surface and the finished result will be a piece of jewellery which looks as good as the day it was made.

Please Contact Us or call into the shop for any enquiries.
