Award Winning Jewellery Design Service
Christensons has two multi award winning jewellers on the premises. We can custom design and handmake your own special and unique piece of jewellery in our onsite workshop. Quality and excellence does not cost any more at Christensons. As with any handmade piece, depending on the complexity of your design it will take a little longer than if you are just buying something off the shelf. Please allow for this. It can be anywhere from two to six weeks but is well worth the wait.
Redesign and Remodel
As mentioned above, come and sit down with one of our designers and rework your older or worn out pieces of jewellery into a new and exciting design or allow us to restore it to it's previous glory!
Christensons have had extensive experience in restoring antique jewellery. Our master jeweller is well qualified in this field, whether it be as simple as a broken or worn claw, or as complicated as rebuilding an intricate design or just decent, honest advice. We will always be happy to assist.
Unfortunately we live in a day and age where there is a lot of mass produced poor quality jewellery being sold and purchased without the buyer really being aware of what they are getting and some of this finds it's way into our workshop not long after with a disapointed owner in our workshop seeking advice. We will always give you sound advice and do a quality repair.
We have a very experienced watchmaker with over forty years experience who can provide you with a free quotation to repair your analogue or quartz watch. We can also replace batteries and watch straps whilst you wait, however, older watches generally require new parts and as most manufacturers do not keep readily available parts on hand these have to be ordered in so some repairs can take three to four weeks and in rare cases even longer.
We clean and polish any jewellery that we have made for our clients free of charge. We also recommend that clients bring their jewellery in for a clean and polish and a check up at least once a year. We also offer this service for jewellery that was not made by us at a small charge.
We can offer both a diamond machine engraving and a hand engraving service. Machine engraving usually takes one to two days. Our experienced hand engravers can take around one to two weeks depending on our workload.
We have a qualified certifier that can provide you with an up to date valuation on your jewellery. This is something you should do every few years, especially if you require your jewellery to be covered by your insurance. The time frame needed for valuations can difer depending on the amount of jewellery that requires valuing.
Insurance Replacement Work
We are a preferred supplier for many insurance companies and look after some of their VIP clients. We are also able to provide a quote for you on jewellery insurance through the Valuation Centre of Australia which can cover you throughout Australia and Worldwide for loss, theft and damage. Some policies do not always cover you for damage.
