  • Can i use my own gold or gems to remake into new items
    When recycling customer metals we are unable to guarantee the quality of the metal after the melting process and are therefore is not covered under warranty. Eg: small blemishes and cracks.

    In the instance that we quote to use customer metal in a job and there is not enough provided, we will offer to add extra at a reduced cost, if the customer is unable to supply additional metal.  This is sometimes not obvious until the work has commenced. 

    If there is more than required we will return the unused portion OR a trade in can be agreed upon.
  • Can you use the stones I provide?

    We will provide an inspection of the stones to check for possible flaws/cracks prior to the commencement of the job. However, in some circumstances flaws/cracks can go undetected during our initial inspection and only become apparent once work has begun, especially old and Estate stones.

    In the event that a customer stone is damaged during work undertaken and the cause was due to our negligence or the damage could have been avoided then we will replace it at no charge to the customer (we will contact you immediately in this circumstance).

    Certain stones cannot be covered under warranty e.g. opal and emerald.
