Jewellery repair is the process of fixing, restoring, or modifying pieces of jewellery that have been damaged or have lost their original form or function. This can include a wide range of tasks such as resizing rings, replacing lost or damaged gemstones, repairing broken clasps, fixing damaged chains or necklaces, re-plating worn-out metal, polishing and cleaning jewellery, and much more.
The first step in jewellery repair is to assess the piece of jewellery and determine the extent of the damage or required modification. The jeweller will then carefully disassemble the piece to access the damaged or affected areas. Depending on the nature of the repair, the jeweller may use a variety of tools and techniques, such as soldering, welding, or laser welding to repair or replace any damaged or broken parts.
Once the repair is complete, the jeweller will clean and polish the piece to restore its original lustre and shine. Finally, the jewellery is inspected to ensure it is in excellent condition before being returned to the customer.
Jewellery repair is an important service that helps people to restore their cherished jewellery and extend its lifespan. It requires skill, expertise, and experience, and is typically performed by professional jewellers who have the necessary tools and equipment to handle a wide range of repairs.
