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
This place is an absolute gem (pun intended). I discovered them wanting a necklace soldering and instead they offered me micro welding! I was so pleased that I have since taken them work repaired elsewhere to be repaired properly, and each time it has been better than I could have hoped for. Thanks to Ryan and the team for their expertise and professionalism. A very unique company. I'm very glad to have found them.
I can not tell you how absolutely thrilled I am with my ring. I had an idea in my head of what I wanted and I explained it to Ryan.I hoped he would be able to interpret what I wanted. This was my engagement ring so you can imagine how important this was to me.I could not believe that Ryan not only did exactly what I wanted, but it was even better than I could ever of hoped for. The craftsmanship and the beautiful detail was outstanding. I get so many positive comments and people asking where I bought it from or who made it. Thank you Ryan for all your hard work And giving me the most beautiful engagement ring. I will be asking you to do my wedding ring without hesitation. Stephanie Forsbrook
Utterly fantastic from start to finish. Extremely helpful in giving an estimate of costs from photos on email then a prompt appointment to view and confirm the quote in London. Managed to squeeze the work in pre Xmas and I can honestly say the quality of the rings when I collected them were as if they were brand new. Stunning workmanship, beautifully cleaned and even found 2 ring boxes in readiness for surprising my wife. Such lovely people, thank you so much for your help and great work.
