JEWELLERY REPAIRS

For Jewellery repairs many are carried out in-house on-site so you can have peace of mind they are secure and looked after. Additionally, by having such control over our own workshop, repairs are performed as quickly and efficiently as possible. Certain repairs can be carried out same day with advance booking, our typical working time for most repairs is 10 to 14 days. We can update you via phone, email or text message. For more complicated or specialist work, Jacobs has a long established and trusted off-site network of professionals we can call on. We would be pleased to advise and guide you , as well as provide estimates on request. We pride ourselves of clarity of information and reliability as well as presenting you with all the right information you need to decide what’s best.

In the last few years, we’ve noticed recycling older or unworn jewellery is becoming more and more popular. This is often for environmental, sentimental and economic reasons. Many people have a box full of rings, chains or jewellery that they have collected or inherited, often the wrong size, in need of repair or not to their particular taste.

We can melt down most examples of old jewellery and rework it into something new and unique, adding more precious metal if required and sometimes using your gemstones. We can of course source new ones. Using this technique we can create many items of jewellery, from rings and bangles to pendants and brooches all the while keeping an emotional connection to the past.

For selected repairs an Express Repair service is available (between 1 and 4 hours). This is subject to capacity and the specific repair required. We require sight of the actual jewellery in Jacobs Reading shop in order to best advise a price and time.
