Do you have a watch that needs a new battery, a bracelet that needs restringing, or a ring that needs resizing? If so, you might be wondering where to go and how much it will cost. In this blog post, we will explain the jewellery repairs and alterations services that we offer at our store, and answer some of the most common questions that our customers have.
One of the most frequent requests that we get is for watch repairs. Whether you bought your watch from us or not, we can help you with the following services:
We can replace most watch batteries in store, and we charge £15.00 for this service. However, please note that we cannot vacuum seal watches to guarantee water resistance. If you have a water-resistant watch, you might want to take it to an authorised dealer instead.- Links and Strap Alterations: If you need to adjust the size of your watch strap, we can add or remove links for you. This service is free of charge for watches bought in store, and £5.00 for watches bought elsewhere. We can also fit a new watch strap for you for £5.00.
Another common service that we offer is restringing for charm bracelets and other jewellery items. We work with several popular brands, such as Links of London, ChloBo, Jersey Pearl, and Thomas Sabo.
We can restring Links of London bracelets, rings and watches in store. Prices are £35.00 for sweetie bracelets, £45 for effervescent bracelets, £45 for sweetie watches, and £49.00 for rings.
ChloBo, Jersey Pearl, Thomas Sabo: Restringing starts at £25.00 for these brands. However, in some cases, we might have to send your jewellery back to the brand to be restringed, which might take longer. For an exact price and an estimated time, please contact us.
We can also handle a variety of other jewellery repairs, such as fixing snapped chains, replacing lost stones, or repairing broken rings. The prices and times for these repairs depend on the type and extent of the damage, as well as the availability of the materials.
