3 Things you Might not Know about Jewellery Repairs


Getting the most out of your jewellery means looking after it properly. And occasionally, that means having repairs carried out. But have you thought about what that means for your jewellery? Here are three facts you might not know about jewellery repairs, from a trusted jeweller carrying out jewellery repairs on the premises Ilford based customers can trust.

1.  Many Jewellers Send their Jewellery Away for Repair

Yes it’s true, many jewellers send their jewellery off site to be repaired! Obviously this carries with it a certain risk of your precious pieces being lost in transit.

When it comes to ensuring that your jewellery is in safe hands whilst being repaired, you should always use a jeweller who carries out jewellery repairs on the premises. Hainault, Ilford, Loughton and Woodford based customers can visit E.K. Jewellers, as we carry out all of our jewellery repairs on site, so there is no risk to your pieces being lost in transit.

2.  All Jewellery Requires Regular Maintenance

Regardless of how much your jewellery cost, all jewellery will need to have repairs and maintenance carried out at some point or other. Fine jewellery and expensive watches are no exception from this; even those pieces made from very strong and durable metal will need the likes of polishing from time to time, or stones resetting.

It’s really important, therefore, that you choose a jeweller who does not take your jewellery off site to repair it. By choosing a jeweller who carries out jewellery repairs on the premises, Barkingside jewellery lovers can rest assured that their special and expensive pieces will be safe from being lost in transit. For trusted and experienced jewellery repairs on the premises, Woodford and Chigwell based customers can entrust their precious pieces with E.K. Jewellers.

3.  Some Pieces need Regular Maintenance

Certain pieces of jewellery need regular maintenance rather than being repaired as and when a problem occurs. For example, watches should be serviced regularly and have a new watch battery fitted in order to keep them ticking over. Similarly, pearls and beaded necklaces should be restrung every two years or so, otherwise you run the risk of the string breaking and potentially losing precious pearls.

Once again, for this regular maintenance, choose a jeweller who carries out jewellery repairs on the premises. Loughton customers who opt for this option will therefore know that their pieces are safe and will be returned to them in a timely manner.

If you’re looking for a jeweller who carries out jewellery repairs on the premises, Chigwell, Loughton, Ilford, Hainault and Woodford based customers can visit E.K. Jewellers. With a trusted reputation in jewellery repairs, you can rest assured that your pieces will be repaired and serviced on site to give you the peace of mind required when entrusting your precious jewellery to be repaired.
