Common Repairs and Questions Answered 

How much does it cost to resize a ring?

The cost of resizing a ring can vary significantly based on several factors, including the type of metal (white or yellow gold, 10kt, 14kt, or 18kt), the number and type of stones (as some are more delicate than others), and the ring's thickness and size adjustment needed. Prices can start under $100 but can increase based on these variables. 

Can we fix broken chains?

Yes, we can repair broken chains made of gold or silver. The repair process typically requires a simple solder; however some may involve more complex techniques. For finer chains, the repair size may remain slightly visible. . If the clasp mechanism for your chain is faulty, a replacement is the best course of action.

Can we replace stones in a ring?

Absolutely. This service encompasses sourcing the perfect stone to match your ring and replacing the prongs to keep it nice and secure. As each piece is unique, we invite you to bring your jewellery in for a personalized quote. 

Can we rhodium plate white gold?

Rhodium plating is a popular finish for white gold jewellery, enhancing its whiteness and shine. Over time, white gold may develop a yellowish tint due to wear and exposure; rhodium plating restores its bright, silver-white finish. The process involves cleaning the piece, checking the prongs holding your precious stones, plating it in rhodium, and then polishing it to a brilliant shine. Many choose rhodium plating to rejuvenate their jewellery, enjoying its refreshed appearance.
