Jewellery Restoration and Remake

Alister Reid

Sometimes our much loved jewellery can be loved to the point where repair is no longer the best option and the piece needs to go through the remake process.

At Gray Reid Gallery we have a team of jewellers who specialize in remaking jewellery. Using their skills and knowledge of the era, our workshop is able to measure up the original and recreate the piece as it would have been in its former glory. It takes a very skilled jeweller and their team who understands both the style/period of the original piece as well as being able to take into account the future wearers lifestyle in order to recreate an accurate piece which will be able to loyally serve the wearer of today and into the future.

On the left is an original antique ring which has sides that have been heavily worn down by an accompanying wedding band and claws which have been worn down through general wear and tear. On the right is the remake of the piece. The sides of the coronets have been made as they would have been and the claws made to be the correct thickness.
