Our comprehensive Jewellery repair service includes re-sizing, re-tipping of claws, supply and replacement of missing stones, rejoining chains and bracelets, and fitting new clasps, to name just a few. We also completely refurbish damaged Jewellery, and can even remount your unwanted Jewellery.
If you are looking to refresh or update a current piece of your jewellery, Hester Clarke is the place to come. We have chosen some of the most talented jewellery designers to work with, who will design and create your chosen item of jewellery to your exact specifications. We can even remount or renovate a much loved heirloom to the original design.
Whether they’re Natural, Cultured or Imitation Pearls, Coral and beads of all descriptions, sooner or later, to keep them safely in place, they will all need re-stringing. We can clean and re-string them, plain or knotted, replacing damaged ones and re-graduating the rows where necessary.
From repairing handles to removing dents and splits, straightening and re-polishing new or antique pieces. We also re-silver electro-plated items and supply replacement glass liners for salts.
To give your gifts that personal touch, or for special events and commemorations, at Hester Clarke we can engrave a wide range of items, either by hand or machine. Whether you need a coat of arms or crest on a signet ring, your wedding date on the inside of your wedding ring or initials on a silver golf ball marker or pen, fine hand or machine engraving, including facsimile can be applied to most types of metal.
We also offer a comprehensive workshop service for quartz and manual movements, including water resistance testing, replacement glass and servicing.
