The first step of every jewellery repair is cleaning the piece. This helps reveal any other potential needed repairs that weren’t visible while the jewellery was dirty. The ultra-sonic cleaner pulsates the dirt and grime out of a piece.
White gold is inherently yellow. Over time the rhodium that makes it white fades away revealing a natural yellow gold found within. Rhodium plating brings it back to that shiny white color that white gold should be. Depending on the condition of the jewellery it can be a fairly quick process. It requires the jewellery to be thoroughly cleaned, then polished before any plating can be done. This simple onsite jewellery repair can be usually done in 24 hours if there is no other issue with the piece.
If you’ve noticed scratches forming on gold jewellery, bring it in to be polished out. White gold will need to be re-rhodium plated after being polished, due to the rhodium being removed during the polishing process.
While platinum is a strong metal, it is still susceptible to scratches and dings. When you notice that, bring your platinum jewellery in to be polished.
Soldering involves the use of an open flame to attach gold or silver to itself. We use high quality techniques and avoid methods such as EZ-solder.
