Jewellery Alterations


We provide an alteration and re-modeling service for your jewellery. If you wish we can work with your own gold and stones to remake a tired or dated piece, even working to your own designs and ideas. Come along and let us turn your thoughts into a brand new wearable piece. If you wish to modernize any jewellery you own, we can provide mounts without stones. A popular choice at present is removing the diamonds from yellow gold pieces and transferring them to white gold or platinum.

Ring Re-sizing


1849 Goldsmiths can resize most types of rings, from plain wedding band to those with stones set. We cater for all metal types and can resize gold, silver, platinum and more. Rings can be resized up or down multiple sizes, and our white gold ring resizing service comes with complimentary rhodium plating. As with our jewellery repairs we aim to complete the resize within 48 hours.


When it comes to pricing for ring resizing, as no ring is the same, it is difficult to give a set price here on the website, the type of metal and difficulty of the job will determine the finished price. To give you an idea for a piece such as a wedding or engagement ring we will work to a starting price, for example to make the ring smaller in Silver would be £20, 9ct Yellow Gold £35, 9ct White Gold £40, 18ct Yellow Gold £40, 18ct White Gold £45, Palladium £50 and Platinum £50.


If we have to make the ring larger it will be the same starting price plus the cost of the precious metal we have to add. All prices include a full clean and polish, to bring back the original finish. White Gold prices also include Rhodium Plating.


Jewellery Cleaning



At 1849 Goldsmiths, we can offer you an in-house clean and polish service, during the process we will check all the settings for wear or damage bringing your jewellery back to a brand new finish with the same shine and sparkle as the first day you received them.


The ring cleaning and settings check may be able to be carried out while you wait but this is dependent on the condition of your jewellery and our workload at the time, but certainly we will endeavor to return your items within 24 hours.

Rhodium Plating Service (Dipping)


Rhodium is a rare metal which is related to the platinum family. It is much rarer and more expensive than gold and is known to have a white, mirror like colour, this is often used as a final finish to standard white gold. After a time as this wears off it will reveal the true colour of the white gold underneath. We will re-polish the piece and re-plate with new rhodium.
