Jewellery Repairs

Our very own expert Goldsmiths are equipped with the exceptional skill required to undertake all jewellery repairs from the simplest to the most complex request.

At W.E. Clark & Son, we understand how important your jewellery is to you. That is why we have chosen to have a dedicated workshop for repairs. We are much more than a jewellery shop. We know that when your treasured piece of jewellery needs repair, you want to feel confident it is in the right hands.

Our very own expert Goldsmiths are equipped with the exceptional skill required to undertake all jewellery repairs from the simplest to the most complex request. We can repair bracelets, necklaces, necklets, rings, earrings, brooches and cufflinks. You can be absolutely sure your jewellery will be handled and repaired with the utmost care.

Any item of jewellery needing attention can be repaired in our dedicated workshop. It’s very rare that we need to send jewellery away for repair, such are the skills of our on-site Goldsmiths. We can repair or add new shanks to rings, or add new clasps. We also re-size rings and clean and polish any jewellery needing revival. We are used to working with family heirlooms and designer jewellery. We treat every piece of jewellery as preciously as if it were our own.

Missing Claws / Re-Tipping

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.

Our specialist service will identify weak spots or missing claws and enable us to prevent deterioration of your precious and sentimental pieces. We can re-tip deteriorating claws or rebuild breakages to their original high standard. You won’t be able to tell the difference from the original.

We have access to a vast range of diamonds, opals, precious, semi-precious and non-precious stones. Our list is extensive and our diamonds and gemstones are all of fine quality.

We are extremely knowledgeable in the variety of shades of all stones, and will always colour match and grade replacements to the existing stones. We will also inspect settings and claws and advise if any repair work is required to keep your new stone safely in place.
