Jewellery Repairs

At Eloise we are able to do all manners of real and costume jewellery repairs on premesis in Kirkcaldy, whether you need a ring resized, a stone replaced, or a string of beads re-strung.

Our “micro pulse arc welder,” or flameless soldering machine, has opened up a new realm of possibilities when it comes to jewellery repairs. It fuses all types of metal (even costume jewellery) without the use of a flame, allowing us to repair jewellery we once would have had to turn away because we couldn't apply heat or unset the stones.
Jewellery repairs with the help of a microscope
Traditional silversmith techniques are still used when possible to give seamless results to your gold and silver pieces, and all manners of clasps and stones can be matched and replaced.

We are also one of the few jewellers that still offer the traditional restringing technique with individual knotting.

Rhodium plating done here in Kirkcaldy

Rhodium plating is a process used to coat materials with a decorative and protective layer of rhodium which is the world’s most expensive precious metal and is extremely hard. It is used to give white gold (which is naturally a dull grey colour) it's bright white sparkling look & greatly enhances the appearance of diamonds. It can also coat yellow gold for a more contemporary look or even sterling silver with immitation diamonds for a more convincing effect!
