Here at Tustains we offer a fantastic and extremely popular repairs service, for both watches and jewellery. I thought I would take you through some of the standard repairs and some you may not have thought of, they might be just what you’re looking for.
We have a workshop on site where our highly skilled and experienced craftsmen can repair or transform your jewellery. Two of our most popular services are sizing and re-tipping.
Sizing rings- we can size rings by adding or removing some of the metal as well as stretching wedding bands that might just need a little tweek to make them more comfortable. You may not of heard of adding small beads inside the shank of your ring for ease over swollen knuckles, which also stops rings from spinning around when on the finger.
Re-tipping – Over time the tiny claws that hold your stones in place can become worn and thin, you may feel them catching on clothing or become aware that your stone is loose. We can build up, or replace the claws so that you can wear your jewellery with confidence again.
We also offer:
- Re stringing pearl or bead necklaces and bracelets.
- Replacing clasps, we also offer magnetic clasps for when conventional clasps become too fiddly.
- Chain repairs
- Stone replacement
A lot like luxury cars, watches need regular looking after to keep them looking and running to their full potential. Watch companies generally recommend that you have your watch serviced between every 3- 5 years depending on the make and model. This requires us to send the watches to their services centres in the UK. We offer this service on all the brands we stock and have staff here dedicated to tracking and looking after your watches while they are here and away.
In store we offer replacement straps, bracelet cleaning and battery changes on some models as well as pressure tests.
We pride ourselves on having qualified staff that can advise you of the best solutions for your jewellery and watches, and getting an estimate is free so why not come and have a chat with us.
