Diamonds may be forever, but the metal they’re set in doesn’t always withstand our tough way of life (that’s right, you shouldn’t wear your ring in the shower, at the gym, or while doing the gardening). This is why jewellery repairs have become a daily occurrence at Lila’s.
From resizing rings to intricate rebuilding work, we cover all ranges of repairs. We work with specialist workshops and we choose the best one for the job, whatever that is.
Generally, you’d come in with your piece, we book it in our system, we assess the work that needs to be done and we give you a call with a quote within a few days. Once you agreed on the fees we proceed and we get in touch when the piece is ready for collection, usually within two weeks.
Here’s a list of the things we do:
- ring resize up/ down
- clean, polish
- gold, rhodium plating
- retipping/rebuilding stone settings
- sourcing and setting stones
- chain soldering
- bead/pearl stringing
- rebuilding broken parts
- replacing earring posts
We do not repair watches or change batteries.
You can leave your pieces for repair with us any day of the week between 11am -5:30pm, except for bank holidays.
