We offer a range of services which include:
A new service for those interested in investing in diamonds as a long term investment. Please contact us for more information.
Sale/Return for trade
We sell diamonds for stock and also for approval or memo.
We can arrange for rings to be resized up or down as necessary
We are happy to provide quick and reasonable quotes and a fast repair service. For example, fixing broken claws, clasps and smoothing out dents and scratches. We use a range of skilled professionals, depending on the restoration work required, ranging from traditional craftsmen working by hand to the latest modern laser technology. We can also provide a pearl restringing service.
If you have an older piece of jewellery which is scratched, tarnished or damaged or just looking a bit tired, we can clean, polish and rhodium plate it so that it looks like new!
Valuations for insurance
We can provide full reports for fine antique and vintage jewellery, as well as for new and worn or damaged jewellery. If required images can be provided as well.
Chipped and damaged stones can be re-polished, re-faceted, and in some instances, filled with silicon.
We can also arrange for old pieces of jewellery to be broken up and the metal and stones re-used to design a new piece of jewellery. For example, gold can be melted and diamonds reset in a new article of jewellery. You might have an item of jewellery that you bought or inherited many years ago and do not like or wear. Instead of leaving it buried in a drawer or safe, bring it to us and we will help you to redesign it, update it to a new and modern design or change or reset the stones to give it a more contemporary look.
Tips on how to look after your jewellery
We can also advise you how to clean, protect and store your jewellery. Jewellery should be cleaned regularly and stored carefully. Individual items should be stored individually either in tissue paper or soft bags. Chains and necklaces should be fastened, laid flat in special boxes or wrapped in a soft cloth. Diamonds are the hardest gemstones but, if stored next to other diamonds or softer gemstones, can scratch them or be scratched themselves. Gold or platinum jewellery and pearls can also be easily damaged if not properly stored.
Antique and Second hand jewellery
We buy and sell and offer part exchange for both second-hand and period jewellery. We can also advise and assist with submitting jewellery to auction houses. We can also provide a buy-in service for fine jewellery as a convenient and commission-free alternative to auction houses. We are able to offer a quick and confidential service, whether you are looking to sell for cash, or considering part-exchange.
We can help if you are looking to buy a range of personalised or bespoke corporate gifts such as specially engraved luxury pens or business-card holders etc.
We can provide jewellery for any occasion, including engagements, weddings, birthdays, anniversaries or for unforeseen circumstances such as insurance replacements. Or why need an occasion?! We make engagement rings, eternity rings, wedding rings, three stone rings, signet rings, earrings, pendants, necklaces, bracelets, bangles, brooches, cufflinks, tie pins and tiaras, to name a few items!
We are more than happy to cater to your individual requirements. We can advise on special and innovative designs. We can create original jewellery designs in classic or contemporary styles to suit any occasion at affordable prices. We can provide unique jewellery hand-made by craftsmen in their workshop or machine-made and hand-finished combinations, in traditional or modern designs according to your needs and budget – we can, of course, advise. As personal jewellers, we consult with our clients to ensure you acquire exactly the jewellery that is right for you. We will involve you in the creative process and provide feed-back throughout the process to ensure you receive a stunning piece of jewellery. Our jewellery goes against the trend of mass produced jewellery which often lacks the creativity, quality and individuality of handmade pieces.
So if you have a specific request please do not hesitate to contact us either by phone, by email, or via our online form. We are good listeners!
Welcome to a very special buying experience
We will invite you to a personal consultation and give you an explanation of the important things you need to know about diamonds, gemstones and fine jewellery, before you buy. We will help you to understand the 4 C’s of diamonds and the various criteria that determine their beauty and how to look at and grade the diamonds you see. We will help you to match the diamonds you are looking for With the design you have envisaged and your budget. We will liaise with our designers and help the concept evolve from a preliminary sketch into a crafted piece of fine jewellery, through the following stages:-
We can show you photographs or drawings of items of jewellery in order to help you visualize your ideas and can also ask one of our own jewellery designers to help you with your design.
We will source a selection of stones to show you and, using our special equipment, will explain to you the merits and characteristics of each stone, as per the criteria listed above.
Once you are completely happy with the design and the stones you have chosen, we will use our specially selected craftsmen to make your unique item.
Your item of jewellery will be presented to you in a specially chosen box which will both display it beautifully and protect it from being damaged. We will also give you a detailed valuation and the Certificate for the diamond(s) you have chosen.
