With hundreds of years of collective experience we offer production support to jewellery brands as they grow from little acorns into great oak trees. We believe in preserving skills and sharing knowledge and take this approach to working with our customers. Most of the services our customers require we provide at our production facilities in Birmingham.
From time-to-time there will be an area of specialism which we cannot offer. On these occasions we tap into our deep network of jewellery industry relationships knowing we will find the right person for the job.
From cleaning castings and soldering to polishing and plating, our skilled workforce has extensive experience ranging from single items and repairs to large scale production runs.
We have an extensive press shop equipped with both modern and traditional machinery. Furthermore, we have a range of tooling available and in most cases we will also be able to use your tools and dies as required.
We are able to both solder by hand on individual pieces or use our controlled atmosphere oven which is especially useful for large quantities of work where labour costs are to be kept to a minimum.
Our in house setting capabilities allow us to offer all aspects ranging from CZs and synthetic stones through to semi-precious stones and diamonds.
Our polishing shop employs chemical fire removal techniques and steam cleaning and is able to offer both mechanical and hand finishing to all metals.
All of our processes are nickel free, designed for wearable jewellery and compatible with other finishes such as enamel. We plate in yellow gold, rose gold, rhodium, black rhodium and bright silver and can also provide a stopping off service for selective plating.
Where selective plating work is required, we use a pen to plate in a precise area. This is available in yellow gold, rose gold, white rhodium and black rhodium.
We have the ability to work on very small and larger items with our modern dispensing equipment and we are also able to mix colours to your specification.
Our state of the art machine can engrave in almost any font, on flat or on curved surfaces, inside and outside of rings and bangles and in many other more straightforward circumstances. It is also capable of engraving logos from image files such as jpegs, photos and drawings.
Complementing our traditional workshop skills, our new state-of-the-art laser welder can handle almost any metal and can repair many items which are not suitable for hand soldering. For more complicated jobs, laser welding can facilitate a more economical approach.
