Missing Claws / Re-Tipping

Your most valuable pieces of jewellery should be checked for damage and wear every six months to avoid breakage and stone loss. Our specialist service will identify any weaknesses and prevent deterioration.

The claws around stones in any jewellery item are exposed to everyday wear and tear. In the long term, this can result in the claw wearing and even breaking off. For peace of mind, your most valuable pieces of jewellery should be checked by us for damage and excess wear every six months to avoid breakage and stone loss.
