Antique Jewellery Restoration
David has a wealth of experience in sensitively restoring and repairing antique and vintage jewellery. He often takes on work that other jewellers turn down due to lack of experience. However, he also knows when to exercise caution and, if he judges the work will involve significant risk to a fragile piece, he will consult the client over whether the work should in fact take place.
David welcomes enquiries via phone or email but inevitably he must see the jewellery for himself before making any decisions or recommendations. You are welcome to send him any pieces for appraisal via registered or express post - please include a return post satchel in case you decide not to go ahead with the recommended work.* Please contact David first to let him know that you're sending him something.
N.B. Please ensure you post your item via registered or express post with 'signed for'.
Take a look at some examples of David's work in antique jewellery restoration.
19th century earrings: David bought these fantastic 19th century 18ct gold, emerald and pearl earrings assuming they were French. Once they had been carefully cleaned however it was then possible to see the hallmark properly and, after some extensive research, it became clear that they were instead Austro-Hungarian from the era of the Habsburg Empire.
