Jewellery Repairs, Resizing, Remodelling
If you’ve just received a scary looking quote from a Retail jewellery store to remodel, resize or repair jewellery, then look no further!
Jewellery Repair Sunshine Coast
A true story: One client was referred to Siobhan because she wanted her new engagement ring resized. The well known jewellery store she bought it from had told her it would take at least a week to send away for resizing but she needed it sooner for her engagement party. Siobhan resized it quickly and the amount she charged (though she didn’t realise at the time) turned out to be less than half the amount the shop would have charged her – and they sold it to her!
Top tip: If you buy a new ring from a store they should not charge you for resizing it!
Many of Siobhan’s clients have come to her after getting shoddy service from well known jewellery shops – most of which send their jewellery repairs and alterations to off site workshops, leading to lengthy delays for the customer.
From ring resizing and jewellery repairs to remodelling a piece of jewellery that isn’t fashionable any more, if you have something that needs a pair of expert eyes to assess quickly, then Siobhan can quite possibly save the day!
Contact Siobhan today to arrange a no obligation consultation or, if you’re handy with a camera, send her some photos showing as much detail as you can and she will reply with her recommendations. Alternatively, if you’re not on the Sunshine Coast, you can send her your jewellery for appraisal if you include an express post bag for return delivery (in case you decide not to go ahead with the work). Please contact Siobhan first to let her know that you’re sending her something.
N.B. Please ensure you post your item via registered or express post with ‘signed for’.
Remodelled engagement ring
This inherited engagement ring made the diamonds look really dark. The bride-to-be wished to keep the diamonds for sentimental reasons but wanted a more modern look. The ring that Siobhan made transformed the look of the diamonds in their new 18ct white gold bezel settings.
Repaired engagement ring
The claws on this ring had worn away resulting in the loss of the central tourmaline stone. The client decided now was a good time for a change of look, and chose a stunning emerald, replacing 10 of the claws to secure all the stones, and gave it a good clean!
