      Antique & Restoration

 

Jewellery Watch Repairs and Restoration London are delighted to define for our customers the difference between Antique and Vintage Jewellery.

When a jewellery item is classified as ‘Antique’ when it has been owned and/or made over 100 years from our present year. If a piece of jewellery is more than 25 years old but less than 100 years old it is classified as ‘Vintage’.

Antique jewellery has an amazing history and just one look at such a piece is simply beautiful.

It is necessary to restore pieces of Antique jewellery to ensure they will last for several life times.

Dating Antique jewellery is normally done by looking at different features:

– Hallmarks

– Design,

– Findings

– Stones shapes

At Jewellery Watch Repairs and Restoration London we are experts in Antique Jewellery.

We love to restore them back their original condition with our master craftsmen.
