Repairs & Alterations
To help keep your jewellery in excellent condition we recommend that you schedule for it to be cleaned at Lanes at least once a year. This will allow us to check for signs of damage or wear and tear & suggest a suitable repair before it becomes a serious problem.
If a treasured piece of jewellery becomes damaged we can offer a first class repair service.
Lanes can carry out complete restorations of favourite pieces.
At Lanes we have a fully equipped jewellery workshop with a whole host of traditional tools which combined with our 35 year+ ‘bench’ experience enable us to say ‘yes’ to most tasks.
We have also invested in a Laser Welding unit which enables us to repair and create items which for decades have been almost impossible to complete using traditional techniques.
