Gemmology and Diamond Grading

Design and Remodelling
An important aspect of our business is updating or revamping jewellery, which is either no longer serviceable or has perhaps simply dated. With changes in fashion trends and individual lifestyles redesigning existing pieces of jewellery is often the more affordable and successful answer to replacement.
We also offer a complete design service which allows our customer to specify exactly what they would like - and perhaps take inspiration from our own ideas and existing designs
- All insurance valuations are carried out in-store by our Gemmologist and Diamond Graders.
