How to Make your Jewellery Repairs Plain Sailing


If you’ve ever put your jewellery in for repair, we sincerely hope that you did so with a feeling of faith and trust in your jeweller. If, however, you’ve ever handed over a precious piece of jewellery and have worried about it being lost, or not treated as well as you’d like, then we want to turn that experience around.

As a jeweller who carries out jewellery repairs on the premises, we always want to make sure that our clients feel safe in the knowledge that their pieces are in the best possible hands. However, there are a few extra things that can be done in order to make jewellery repairs plain sailing.

Choose Jewellery Repairs on the Premises

The easiest way to ensure that your jewellery repairs are plain sailing is to use a jeweller who carries out jewellery repairs on the premises. This is the only way that you can ensure that your precious piece of jewellery doesn’t get lost during transit. A jeweller that carries out repairs on site won’t need to move it unnecessarily, and can repair the piece in house.

You should research a local trusted and experienced jeweller for your jewellery repairs. Ilford customers can, of course, entrust E.K. Jewellers with their jewellery repairs, as we carry them out on site.

Record all the Details

It may sound obvious, but the first thing you should do once you’ve decided on a jeweller to carry out your jewellery repairs is make sure that they have all of your details recorded correctly. Give them your phone number and email address so that you’re easily contactable should any problems arise during the repairs.

You should also ensure that you point out any missing stones, any scratches or dents, and the hallmark (if the piece has one). You may want to take a photograph of the piece, and keep a copy of which stones are included or missing for your own records. This way, if something goes wrong during the repair process, you have a record of the piece before you handed it over.

Agree a Contract of Work

Once you’ve chosen your jeweller and recorded all of the necessary details, you should agree a contract of work with your jeweller. This should outline the repairs that you wish to be carried out, and the work as agreed between you and the jeweller.

Remember to ask about costs at this point, as many people forget that repairs can be costly in comparison to how much the piece cost originally, although sentimentality cannot be bought, of course.
