Fine Jewellery Workshop
Our busy workshop in the small town of Woburn Sands near Milton Keynes is home to our highly skilled expert jewellers. Using a combination of traditional methods and the latest technology we are able to offer a range of bespoke services. We select the best craftsman for each job and ensure extreme care is taken at each step as we know that your jewellery is often of great sentiment. Our dedicated workshop office will handle the before and after care and ensure your jewellery is returned to you after a quality control check.
With the past Chairman of the Institute of Professional Goldsmiths and two Fellows of the institute, there can be no greater guarantee of workmanship. This is the highest recognition of craftsmen in the jewellery industry and is recognised worldwide.
Our services are detailed below. If you would like to discuss any of these or receive an estimate, you can contact Woburn Sands on 01908 585811 alternatively we welcome you to our stores to discuss your requirements.
We provide high quality jewellery repairs with a quick and efficient turn around at competitive prices. However small the repair, we will ensure the work carried out is of the highest standard. Many small repairs such as re-tipping claws can prevent more costly repairs at a later date. Regular care and maintenance will ensure the longevity your jewellery deserves.
Sometimes things just don’t fit anymore. Don’t let this become a reason to stop wearing your jewellery. We can quickly and easily re-size your rings whether it is to make them smaller or bigger.
Jewellery cleaning & inspection:-
Jewellery needs to be loved and cared for. Many of your pieces probably have sentimental value and some may have been handed down through generations. Like anything of value, it is important it is cared for to prolong its life and to avoid more costly repairs at a later date. We offer a range of inspections and cleaning methods suited to each individual piece some available whilst you wait.
When white gold becomes dull, it's shine can be restored with rhodium plating. Rhodium plating is a great way of restoring a piece of jewellery to its original look and strength.
We are able to offer a full hallmarking service. We hand deliver and collect items to and from the Goldsmiths’ Company Assay Office in London, the place where hallmarking began and with a history spanning nearly 700 years.
We offer an engraving service to jewellery and larger items such as commemorative shields, plates and trophies. Both hand engraving and machine techniques are used. Larger items are usually sent to our engravers based in Woburn Sands.
We offer a full rethreading service. Our rethreader undertakes her role to enable your broken necklaces and strands of pearls to have a new lease of life.
We can test and change watch batteries whilst you wait in most instances. For basic repairs, we can usually carry these out in our workshop however more complex repairs or services involving mechanical parts will be sent to one of our trusted horologists who will examine your watch and provide a competitive estimate before any work is proceeded.
We carry out Insurance Valuations and Probate Valuations. Having an up-to-date, professional insurance valuation will give you peace of mind and protection should the worst happen.
Valuations are completed at our Woburn Sands site so your jewellery is not posted elsewhere* and you can be sure that you will receive professional, comprehensive valuations prepared by an expert.
We will happily provide written proof of ownership for insurance companies.
*Valuations taken to any of our other stores are transferred with care and security to and from Woburn Sands by our very own trusted and fully insured delivery drivers.
It is amazing what can be achieved with a bit of imagination… Do you have a piece of jewellery that just isn’t you? Or that pendant that is looking a bit dated? Bring your unloved jewellery to Harrisons Jewellers and we can discuss your options. Earrings can be created from a pendant or perhaps a bracelet can become an entire set including earrings and a pendant! The options are endless.
With a free design and consultation process this is a cost effective way of renewing your jewellery collection.
Bespoke Design and handmade jewellery:-
At Harrisons Jewellers we can create one off pieces using your designs or we can work with you to create something special. We source the precious metals and stones of your choice working to your budget. It is here we can utilise the latest advance in technology by creating a 3D image of your design before work begins or if you prefer we can use the traditional methods of drawing. Anything from engagement and wedding rings to the most elaborate of brooches or pendants can be designed.
Once you are happy with the design we begin the process of creating your piece utilising the individual skills of each craftsman. The workshop in Woburn Sands has a viewing window and you are welcome to stop by during store opening hours to see the craftsmen at work and ask any questions you may have.
