FREE CLEANING SATURDAY
On Saturdays (10-4) we offer a free cleaning and inspection for your jewellery. (maximum 5 items) The usual charge for this is from £5.00. So why not take advantage this Saturday and lets us clean your jewellery.
WATCH, BATTERY, AND STRAP REPAIRS.
Our fully trained and professional watch repairer will be happy to inspect and quote on most models of quartz & mechanical watches. Due to the expertise involved in processing a quote for watch repairs, there is a £10.00 charge for this service which, if proceeded is deducted from the cost of the repair.
We offer an on-site battery replacement service. We use what we consider to be the best brand of watch batteries so that we are able to offer a 12-month guarantee on the battery. At present, we do not have the facilities on-site to pressure test for water resistance. So, we will not be able to guarantee the water resistance on your watch. This service is available but would take longer and cost more to do.
We also supply and fit leather and metal straps.
VALUATION FOR INSURANCE & PROBATE
We offer a full insurance valuation and probate service. Our Registered Valuer will create a full insurance valuation which includes a full description complete with photographs.
For Probate the valuation fee is worked out an hourly basis and depends on how much work is required
Valuation Fees- 1st item £79.00 subsequent items £39.00 thereafter.
Valuation for Probate-£49.00 per hour.
We are fully insured and qualified as piercers. We pride ourselves on the time and care we take during the piercing.
We offer a choice of hypoallergenic, Titanium, 9ct or 18ct Gold earrings in both plain and stoned studs.
We only use pre-packaged, pre-sterilised studs so there is ‘no touch’ when piercing the ear lobes. We only pierce earlobes. The lobe is cleansed and marked prior to piercing.
We pierce for anyone over 5 years old however anyone under 16 must be with a parent or legal guardian. Signed parental or legal guardian consent is required in store.
We keep records of all our piercings with the name and address of the customer together with the batch details of the studs used.
We recommend that the earrings are cleaned every morning and every night using our After-Care Lotion and turned a little more each day clockwise and anticlockwise until the stud is freely turning all the way round. (if you have long hair, make sure to clip it out of the way)
We recommend that you avoid public baths for the first week.
We recommend that after the six-week period, a 9ct or 18ct gold stem style earrings are worn for at least a six month period in order to ‘establish’ the hole. Children have very healthy skin and it can heal and close within hours or days.
If you feel there is something that we haven’t covered or would like further information please do not hesitate to contact us. We are happy to offer advice and can be contacted by phone or email.
