Restoration and Remakes
We pride ourselves on restoring your items to how they would have looked originally.
Trained in one of the UK's top manufacturing companies of the 1970's, there aren't any designs we haven't made. Using the best of traditional techniques, we can restore virtually any design.
Not only do we restore your items for you we also pride ourselves on making an exact copy of an item that you might have lost. For example, we can make an earring to match.
If your item of jewellery is completely worn out we can remake it to how it would have been brand new, the traditional way and not cast.

Valuations and Probate
You may require a valuation for several reasons; the most common is that your insurer requires an independent document to provide adequate insurance cover for your jewellery. Other reasons may include private sale or just for personal interest.
If you are settling an estate, this is the valuation you need both to ensure there is a fair distribution among the heirs, and to prove the estate value for inheritance tax.
We can offer this service in store and usually while you wait. We also give a free approximate verbal valuation.
* For larger collections, it is advised that you telephone and make an appointment.
