Award Winning Jewellery Design Service
Christensons has two multi award winning master 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!
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 seeking advice. We will always give you sound honest advice and do a quality repair.
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.
Christensons have had extensive experience in restoring antique jewellery. Our master jewellers are 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.
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.
Insurance Replacement Work
We are a preferred supplier for many insurance companies and look after some of their VIP clients. In many cases, people are not aware that they can select their own jeweller for their insurance replacements and many insurance assessors will quite often try to send you to their preferred jeweller that looks after the insurance companies best interests, not necessarily providing you with the best quality replacement items. You are entitled to have your jewellery made to the same standard and quality and we specialise in doing this at competitive prices.
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.
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.
