Repairs

Our instore workshops in both Bath and Bristol shops have skilled and dedicated goldsmiths using their great experience and passion to carry out all commission work and jewellery repairs for Nicholas Wylde.

We specialise in repairing items made from precious metals but can often repair costume jewellery as well.

We’ll give you a quotation for the repair of any item brought into the shop and the majority of pieces will be repaired on the premises in our own workshops.

Same day repairs are usually possible.

Rings can be resized up or down, replacement stones can be sourced and fitted, chains can be soldered, clasps can be replaced, just to give a few examples.

And we always like a challenge!

Same day repairs

We are happy to offer same day repairs and most items can usually be undertaken. There is an extra charge for this service.

Examples of repairs which can usually be carried out on the same day are: ring sizing, chain repairs, cleaning and polishing.  One of our friendly and experience staff members will be happy to advise you further regarding any potential same day repair.

Valuations

At Nicholas Wylde we strive to provide our customers with the best service available and that includes Valuations for insurance and probate purposes.

We ensure that your precious jewellery is professionally assessed and clearly documented.

Valuations for Insurance

It’s quite common for people not to have their jewellery adequately insured, especially if the items were gifts or inherited.  Many insurance policies state a maximum single item limit for valuables such as jewellery and we find that people often own and wear items with a value well exceeding these limits.

We use a local independent valuation organisation who are NAG registered with over 20 years specialised experience in the jewellery business.

All jewellery valued can be professionally cleaned and polished in our workshop.

Our valuations provide all the information (dimensions of stones, grades, weights, hallmarks etc.) required by a post loss assessor and include a detailed photograph to illustrate and aid the provided description.

VALUATION CHARGES:

STANDARD 7 DAY VALUATION SERVICE

one item schedule costs £65 
additional items costs £50 (per item)

If you require a valuation sooner than seven days, please contact us as we may be able to arrange a quicker service at a special rate.

It is advisable to have your jewellery re-valued every three years, as its value may fluctuate,and be higher than the figure it is insured for.

Any jewellery you have purchased from us will be re-valued at 25% discount on providing a copy of the last valuation.

All other valuations will be charged at our normal fee.

If you do not have any insurance or find that your jewellery is underinsured, but do not want to change your home contents policy, we can send you an application form and details of where you can obtain a competitive quote.

REMEMBER – YOU WILL RECEIVE YOUR FIRST VALUATION FREE OF CHARGE FOR ANY ITEM WORTH OVER £1,000 PURCHASED AT NICHOLAS WYLDE (EXCLUDING SECOND HAND SALES).  THIS VALUATION CAN BE UPDATED EVERY THREE YEARS AT 25% DISCOUNT FROM THE NORMAL CHARGE.

Valuations for Probate

A probate valuation values items belonging to a deceased person for the estate of that person.

A probate valuation values items at their lowest resale value – what you could expect receive if you took the items into a jeweller’s and asked them to purchase the items from you or sell them in auction.

PROBATE VALUATION CHARGES:

One item schedule costs £65 
Additional items costs £20 (per item)

Quotations

Nicholas Wylde can provide a replacement quotation for an item of jewellery that is lost or stolen.  

Our service allows you to discuss, with an experienced member of our staff, the
exact details of the missing jewellery (any photo with the jewellery being worn will also
help).  We can provide an accurate quotation for replacement of any item before an insurance company tries to offer you a lower settlement figure.  

Quotations are free of charge for any item purchased from us.  For items not purchased from us we charge £15 for a single item and each additional item at £10. The fee is refundable if you decide to spend the whole claim value with us.

Insurance

Superfit

Superfit is a unique hinged ring mechanism. It allows rings to be able to be opened and closed without having to be pushed over the knuckles. This ensures that beautiful rings can be worn for a lifetime, instead of being hidden away in a jewellery box when they become too loose or tight to wear.

The Superfit mechanism can be incorporated into most rings, including wedding rings, engagement rings and family heirlooms. We can design any ring using a “superfit” mechanism available in 18 carat yellow and white gold and platinum.

To discover more about this unique device and your own requirements, book an appointment with a member of the Nicholas Wylde team on 01225 462826 or book online here

Engraving

We offer a comprehensive engraving service, using one of Britain’s leading hand engravers.

Our engraver can engrave literally anything – from simple initials on the inside of a wedding band to a complex deep seal engraving of a family crest on a signet ring.

A wide variety of styles are available and prices start from as little as £25.

Come in-store for a no obligation quote for any engraving requirement. Simply bring the item into the shop and a member of friendly and knowledgeable staff will be happy to advise you.

Lasering

New lasering technology has certainly helped advance the jewellery trade.  The latest equipment allows us to repair jewellery that previously was either very costly to repair or impossible to do.  We no longer need to remove stones.  With a laser welder we do not apply any heat to large areas and we can laser precious or non precious metals. 

If you have an item of jewellery which needs repairing, talk to one of our friendly team today for expert advice on this service.

Enameling

Bring rich and vibrant colour to your jewellery through the highly-skilled art of enameling.

Nicholas Wylde only uses the very best artisans in the country of this sadly dying trade to instil gorgeous and stunning colour work on all our commissions and repairs.
