Firstly, how can the original possibly be replaced?
We admit, it can’t. But what we can do is work closely with you to gather as much information as possible about the lost piece. In the case of a lost stone or another element of a piece of jewellery is provide a one-to-one consultation where we can find a like-for-like replacement using our expertise in precious stones and a vast array of suppliers. You’ll be left with a piece that's restored back to its former glory, more importantly how it originally looked.
What to do if you find yourself in this unfortunate situation.
In order for us to build an understanding of your treasured jewellery we would initially review the following:
As many photographs as possible, any valuations for insurance purposes, the initial receipt of purchase. From the provided information and speaking with the client, we learn the story behind each piece to build a picture of the sentimental value, along with carat weight, colour and clarity in order to fully understand all of the specifications.
Note: if you do not have any of the above, again, do not panic, please contact us and we can discuss.
We will use this information to liaise with our global suppliers and acquire the best possible matches for your review and approval. We will provide various examples of the suggested replacement and let you select the closest match.
