We can replace your diamond and make your ring like new.
Losing a stone from your ring can be extremely upsetting. However usually it can be repaired back to ‘as new’ condition.
If you’ve lost a diamond from your ring, it’s usually because the claws have worn thin and then eventually the stone falls out. We can repair the setting usually by re-tipping the claws, supplying a new diamond if you need one and setting it into your ring. The claws can be rebuilt seamlessly using the laser welder, so actually your ring can be brought back to the way it was when it was new!
When one stone comes out of a ring from normal wear and tear, it usually means that the other claws on the ring need work as well. We will check over the whole ring and quote any work needed to secure all the stones.
Diamond Replacement FAQs
How much will it cost?
It depends on many things. Mostly on how many claws need retipping and the size and quality of the stones that need replacing. You can check our prices here. “Link” Note that you need to have a “stone set” which usually costs from £24, claws cost roughly £9-£12 each to retip, and a white gold piece would need a polish and rhodium for £24.
The other thing you’ll need to check is the cost of your stone. Up to a 3.5mm diamond we have prices listed on HERE in the “diamond prices” section. For stones over 3.5mm, please see our other website www.bespokegoldsmith.co.uk where you’ll find a vast availability of GIA certified stones.
How long will it take?
It depends on how long the queue of work is and how big of a task your ring is. Usually the queue is approx 2 weeks for something like this. We have a rush and priority service if you need it done in a hurry. Rush costs double but we will drop what we are doing and work on your piece until it is done. Usually completing your ring in a couple hours. The priority service costs x1.5 the listed price and is completed in 3 business days.
Is it secure?
Yes, it is. In fact we offer a 1 year guarantee on all our work unless otherwise stated. So if the stone we worked on was not secure or falls out within a year, bring it and the stone in to us and we will do the work again for free. Typically we would expect a stone with newly tipped claws to last approx 10 years.
Is it done in your workshop or do you send it out?
Good question. We do 95% of all our work in our own 4 walls. Usually the only time it leaves the workshop is if it’s white gold and we have to have it rhodium plated just down the road. We collect it the same day from them to go back into our vault.
From Our Customers
WOW! A total gem of a find! Ryan and all the team are absolutely fantastic! Very professional, highly skilled with excellent customer service and a friendly approach. They fixed a pair of earrings to an immaculate standard and adjusted a couple of items so I can wear them properly; the cost was very reasonable and I would thoroughly recommend them to anybody, and will definitely be going back again!
I needed to repair an earring and Simon was the only person to reply. I went to his amazing workshop where he quickly looked at and repaired the earring without fuss. All in all it took just 5 minutes to fix. Without a doubt Simon is the go-to jewellery repairer in London.
