Maintaining your jewellery

Checking and Cleaning
Bring in your special jewellery to be checked and cleaned. Are any stones loose? Are all the claws/prongs intact? Do the stones look dull from trapped debris? Let’s give your piece a once over. Starting at $35
( additional charges will apply if repair is required )
Re-polishing and Refinishing
Is your piece of jewellery tired looking? Bring it back to life by having it re-polished and refinished. Remove dings and scratches. Make the edges crisp again. Recreate a matte or sandblasted finish. Starting at $40
Soldering
Jewellery breaks, it’s just a sad fact. However, in most cases it can solder back together and it will be just like new again! We will use a torch soldering method or laser soldering method depending on the repair. Starting at $25 per solder joint.
Gluing
Has one of your favourite things become un-stuck? We can re-stick it for you. Although gluing may appear to be a simple task, using the right kind of glue for the right materials is key in order for long term success. Leave it to the pros! Epoxy, Cementing and Chemical Bonding. Starting at $12.
Cold Connections
If soldering and gluing are not going to do the trick on your “tricky” piece of jewellery. It may be time to consider creating a cold connection. We will use a technique known as riveting, like using a tiny nail or bars to hold a piece of jewellery together. Starting at $25 per rivet.
Ring Sizing
Most Rings can be sized up or down without a great deal of difficulty, the more complex the ring is, the more challenging the repair will be. (Prices in Silver are for sizing up and down)

*All prices for sizing rings smaller include a credit for any metal removed from your ring. We do not return metal from repairs or re-sizings. Metals from our manufacturing and repair processes are recycled.
Platinum Rings – Starting at $85Gold or Platinum Rings that are being sized up ( made bigger ) will be quoted individually based on the amount and type of gold or platinum that will need to be added.
It is normal for a ring to change from feeling loose and snug throughout the day. This relates to changes in body temperature and water retention. Accepting that these fluctuations will occur is the best way to feel happy about the “fit” of your ring.
Replacing Lost Stones
Over time it is normal for stones to come loose, especially small stones. We can source something as close as possible to what you have lost, or we can replace it with something different. The cost of the stone and the cost of re-setting it will be determined based on the value of the stone and the complexity of the setting.
Re-Setting Stones
So your stone came loose, but it didn’t get lost! This is amazing! We can re-set your stone for you. First we will determine how the stone came out in the first place and then secure it in its setting again. Additional charges may apply if a setting needs to be rebuilt. Starting at $50
Stone Cutting
Do you have a stone that you would like to incorporate into a piece of jewellery? Perhaps it is a pebble from the beach or a smooth un-faceted gemstone that you would like to use in some special way. We can cut the stone to a specific size to fit your unique design. Starting at $50
Re-Shanking
Do you have a thin antique or vintage ring that needs to be re-shanked? Perhaps you have inherited something that you would like to wear but it looks too fragile? We can bring more integrity to a fragile ring by simply replacing the bottom half with new metal. Re-Shanking starting at $85, cost depends greatly on the type of metal we will be using.
Re-Stringing
There are 2 different methods of restringing a broken necklace or bracelet. One is to string each bead on a cord and fasten it at the ends, using a thin stainless steel cable that is coated in nylon that can support the weight of heavier beads. The other is to string each bead on a cord and tie small knots in the cord in between each bead, insuring that each bead is secure, stable and does not move at all on the cord. Restringing Starts at $2 per inch. Restringing with knots starts at $3 per inch.
