Jewellery Restyling & Repair
Restyling of dated, unused or sentimental jewellery is an important aspect of David's work, as many clients have pieces they may no longer wear or need. These items can be restyled or traded in on new ideas, which may be better suited to today’s tastes and styles. Gold can be repurposed several times, along with gemstones.
The re-mixing of old gold requires a trained goldsmith to ensure the proper procedure so the new creation will have the look and feel of a fresh design. This can greatly reduce the cost to you as his client. However, if your jewellery is sentimental to you, David can use it in a new design. Or if you choose, you can also trade in your old gold, the value of which will go towards the cost of your new jewellery piece.
David is trained in all aspects of jewellery repairs. Sometimes a simple and inexpensive repair can add years to a cherished piece of jewellery.
David takes great care to advise whether a piece of jewellery has outlived its purpose and if the repair cost outweighs the dollar value.
