What better way to immortalize memories than to get them engraved on a precious piece of jewellery. A loved one’s name, a special date, either on the inside of a ring or the back of a pendant. Your medical bracelet needs a refresh, when engraving the possibilities are endless.
Pearl necklaces are often of great sentimental value. If your mother has recently given you the pearl necklace that she wore at her wedding, it would probably be wise to have it restrung. Traditionally, pearl necklaces are mounted on a pure silk thread. It is quite normal that the thread stretches and wears with time. Flamme en rose offers full restoration services for your pearl bracelets or necklaces. First, your pearls will be cleaned of all traces of perfume and soap to prevent these chemicals from further damaging the pearls, then each pearl will be carefully restrung on a silk thread with knots between each pearl. The knots prevent the pearls from touching, as well as preventing them from falling if the thread brakes. Pearls are timeless, it is very important to take good care of them!
Re-tipping of claws
When jewellery, mostly rings, are worn on a daily basis, it is very important to have the claws of your setting verified yearly. At Flamme en rose, expert eyes can judge the condition of your claws and assess the work that needs to be done. Sometimes a simple tightening of the claws is required and other times, each claw needs to be re-tipped (adding metal to the top of the claw that has worn down with time to make sure the stone is safe). In extreme cases, the claws or the entire setting needs to be rebuilt. Following any of these situations, a seasoned setter will make sure that all the stones are safe, sound and straight!
Rhodium is a precious metal that is in the same family as platinum. It is used on a regular basis to plate white gold. White gold, also known as grey gold, is almost always plated rhodium. Although it is a very sought-after color, in its natural state, it sometimes has yellowish or greyish hues. Therefore, plating rhodium is a common practice in order to keep it as white as possible. We suggest re-plating once a year since with time, it is normal that this plating wears off, especially on rings or areas that are exposed to friction. Flamme en rose uses a high-end Italian rhodium plating to guarantee the best results.
Certificate of Jewelry Insurance
In many cases having a certificate of evaluation for your expensive jewellery can save you a lot of time and money in the long run. Whether for your insurance purposes or as proof of authenticity when reselling, the FGA certificate of assessment (Fellow of the Gemological Association of Great Britain) is worth the small investment. Flamme en rose works in partnership with gemologist certified by the FGA who provide you with a highly accurate legal certificate. Flamme en rose will also be happy to have your piece of jewelllery evaluated, even if it was not purchased from them.
