Valuation for Insurance
When you have a special piece like a diamond engagement ring, a treasured gold bracelet or a sentimental coloured gemstone necklace you will want to make sure that this is protected properly. Most insurance companies will require an up to date valuation from a recognised jeweller. Our Valuations for Insurance are recognised by all insurance companies in Ireland. Valuations cost €75* per item & take 2 weeks, however, this service isn't available in November & December. Please note this is not a valuation for sale! *We will provide a complimentary insurance valuation with any diamond ring purchased from us.
Watch Batteries & Bracelet Adjustment
We offer a battery changing service for most watches and will replace your watch battery with a high quality silver oxide battery. We can also adjust your bracelet by removing or adding links. Some minor repairs to your watch bracelet are also possible. And if you’re looking for a new strap we have a great selection of leather watch straps in a variety of colours and sizes. This can usually be done in 1 working day.
Polishing & Rhodium Plating
With day to day wear of your jewellery it can pick up residues and small scratches which will lead to it becoming dull and lacking sparkle. The great news is that we can give your piece a deep clean and polish the metal professionally to remove any scratches and bring back that sparkle.
You may be aware that white gold is finished with a rhodium plating which needs to be replated or dipped every year. We offer a replating service which includes a deep clean, polish and redipping of your ring. Following this service your ring will look like it did when you first purchased it. Please allow up to 2 weeks for this service.
Polish & Rhodium- €45 per ring.
We also carry a range of cleaning products that you can use for your jewellery at home, view here
Repairs, Sizings & Reconditioning
When you purchase a piece of jewellery made from a precious metal, you can rest assured that if it gets damaged or broken, in most situations, it can be repaired by a skilled goldsmith. Also from years of wear some pieces will also become worn down and settings loosened, however, we can return your jewellery to its former glory. We are able to offer a repair & reconditioning service for most fine jewellery. Some of the repairs and alterations available are diamond replacement, claw retipping, soldering and resizing. We can even make suggestions to repurpose old jewellery e.g. making a single earring into a pendant. Most repairs will be complete within 2 weeks, however, certain items may take longer. In some cases your gold jewellery may have reached the end of its lifespan, however, you can always sell it for its gold value or trade it in against something new.
There’s nothing like a personalised inscription engraved on that perfect gift to make it more special. We can offer an engraving service for any items which are suitable for engraving such as the back of watches, cufflinks, disc pendants, photo frames, trophies and more. There are a number of styles available from plain block to handwritten script. Please allow 3 working days for engraving.
