The latest work from the studio
Pink tourmaline repair
This is a stunning pink tourmaline I had to re-polish for a client. It only had a few marks from parcel wear but it was going into a very expensive piece so I cleaned it up for them. I must say it was tough to let it go back, I would have loved to keep it!
Amber pendant repair
This large amber pendent is what I call a “well-loved” pendent and is worn most days. As you can see in this image it has become crackled on the surface and rather opaque. It is time to give it a rejuvenation treatment! To start off I need to grind it down to get rid...
Why are natural emeralds oiled?
I recently posted on Facebook photos of emeralds repairs including one matching set which had one emerald completely stripped of its oil during rhodium plating (see the Facebook post here). I showed the usual before and after photos which triggered a few questions...
