If you have an old diamond that's lost its sparkle, don't assume that this is the end of its road; a simple refurbish can help to restore its shine.
Even with a score of 10 on the Mohs Scale of Hardness, diamonds are vulnerable to damage – especially over lifetimes of wear.
With expert hands and a thorough polish, we can remove years of residue and scratches. Though you should expect to lose roughly 0.1ct of weight in the refurbishing process - shaving your 1.5ct sparkler down to one of 1.4ct - your old stone will come out the other side looking good as new, ready to take on the world all over again. There are few gestures quite as romantic as proposing with a much-loved old gem.
Have you inherited an old engagement ring set with stones that have stolen your heart? With the help of our stone-setters in Hatton Garden we can rehome these old sparklers in a brand new engagement ring, offering them a second lease of life in an exciting new role.
We can even source new gems to fill the voids left behind by those departed in your old ring, creating two one-of-a-kind new jewels with no sentimental detail cast aside.
Remember that ring you bought on that beautiful holiday years back? Truth be told, you never really liked the design much, but you love the piece for how it reminds you so clearly of that happy time. If you struggle to style your old jewel but you don’t want to part ways with its fundamental elements, maybe it’s time it reincarnated as something contemporary and better suited to you.
With the careful, expert touch of our craftspeople, we can remodel an old jewel into something brand new, preserving its existing metal and gemstones.
In our current state of climate emergency, it's more important than ever before to celebrate materials already above the ground. No matter how fairly traded or responsibly sourced, newly-mined materials expend further water, land, and energy. Global warming has reached crisis point and it is now vital that we slow the rate at which we’re using and abusing these natural resources.
Our remodelling service presents the opportunity to create a brand new jewel with minimal need for new materials; small in carbon footprint but huge in history and sentimental value.
