Due to the closure of our store network we are unable to take any reservation orders and have had to scale back the range of stock shown on the website.. We have restricted the range of products displayed online to those we have stock available for same/next day dispatch or where manufacturers are still able to supply items on a special order basis (these have longer delivery times between 2 and six weeks). We are still able to take and process orders for lines currently showing as available online and where offered would recommend choosing the 'Express Delivery' option. Thank you for your support and stay safe.
Replica Damaged Ring
Posted on: 28/04/2016
The brief:To recreate a damaged but sentimental diamond ring as closely as possible.
The process:The customer's ring became damaged over time and they were keen to keep the same 'look' rather than opt for an alternative replacement.
Our goldsmiths went to great lengths to find components from a range of suppliers in order to piece together an exact replica. Once pieced together, it was hand finished to further improve accuracy of the copy. The last stage was to reset the original diamond and send the ring off for hallmarking.
Replicating the original ring that was quite literally 'falling apart' was a great idea and the customer was really pleased with the final piece. With sentimental pieces it is sometimes hard to accept that a replacement is better than a repair, but being able to replicate a design and/or use original gemstones can be a sensible solution to maintaining some of that sentimentality.
