The jewellers at Want Jewellery are specialists in Repairing, Restoring & Remodelling Jewellery
When a piece is deemed to be unrepairable it will eventually come to us to be assessed and 90% of the "unrepairable" will be successfully repaired. With the other 10% we will always be honest and transparent in our suggestions on what can/can’t be done. We go where others fear to tread because of our team of highly experienced Jewellers. All repairs are done onsite & have the peace of mind, that you are dealing with the jeweller that is going to complete your repair, not a middle man.
Our team understands that your jewellery is precious to you and has great sentimental value & we treat it with the respect it deserves. Our restoration, salvaging and recreating vintage pieces is second to none & our team is dedicated to making sure your piece maintains its uniqueness and sentimentality.
We also remodel old jewellery into new jewellery and will be completely honest if your piece of jewellery is not completely repairable and ready for this process, instead of just repairing it, knowing that it will be Pandora’s Box for future repairs. We have pride ourselves on turning jewellery box trash into beautiful new creations. We love a challenge and will suggest some incredible things to make your old stuff into your treasured new family heirlooms. Remodelling will save you a lot of money (because you are supplying all the materials), help save the planet (by not buying new gold adding to the pollution & destruction of that process) and get you get a beautiful new piece of jewellery that is exactly what you Want.
All jewellery left with us, is insured by us, while it is in our care.
