Georgian Diamond Ring Restoration This important antique Georgian came in to us recently because it required urgent attention to repair a broken shank which had been cut in an emergency so the the ring could be removed from a swollen finger.  The owner had worn the ring for years and over time much of it   …Continue Reading


Seeing The Potential

Posted on

Sometimes looking past what is directly in front of you and imagining what is possible can really pay dividends.  If you have ever watched one of the countless property programmes that litter the TV schedules you will know what I mean.  Not a programme goes by without the presenter pointing out how to maximise the   …Continue Reading


Victorian Sapphire & Diamond Ring Restoration

Posted on

So, what do you do when a treasured family ring disintegrates right in front of you? [cycloneslider id=”3929_1″] Quite understandably the first thought might be to panic but don’t!  This ring dates from C1890 and over the years everyday wear and tear had taken its toll.  As can be seen in the images above, a   …Continue Reading


Green Tourmaline & Diamond Ring Restoration

Posted on

If asked to name a green gemstone most people would know of emerald.  But there is another green stone much prized for its rich, clean green colour.  Found mainly in Brazil, green tourmaline was especially popular in the first half of the 20th century and was often set in Edwardian jewellery. The owner of this   …Continue Reading


Sapphire & Diamond Three Stone Ring

Ring to Earring Conversion

Posted on

Sometimes things just work out perfectly. [cycloneslider id=”diamond-earrings”] A customer came to us recently with an enquiry that had been gnawing away at her for some time.  She wanted a pair of diamond studs but the diamonds had to be a decent size and certainly large enough to take the ‘clip and post’ fittings that   …Continue Reading


New Lease of Life

Posted on

[cycloneslider id=”new-lease-of-life”] Sometimes a ring just doesn’t work.  Perhaps the proportions are all wrong, the setting isn’t right or the style just hasn’t been executed properly.  A poorly made ring will spend more time in the bottom drawer of a jewellery box that it ever will being worn and enjoyed on the finger which was   …Continue Reading


Diamonds In Every Colour

Posted on

Many people are familiar with Marilyn Monroe’s performance of ‘Diamonds Are A Girl’s Best Friend’ in the 1953 film ‘Gentlemen Prefer Blondes’. Dripping in ice white diamonds and surrounded by well dressed men offering her yet more, one could be forgiven for thinking that all diamonds are indeed ‘colourless’. Whilst the majority of gem quality diamonds used in jewellery are indeed ‘colourless’ a tiny proportion of these stones exhibit distinct colouration.
