How Repairing a Treasured Piece of Jewellery Could Make the Ultimate Gesture this Christmas


How many times have you gone to put on a treasured piece of jewellery, only to find that the clasp has broken? Or wanted to wear an heirloom piece but realised that a stone is missing? Or perhaps you have a wedding or an engagement ring which has broken? With this in mind, how good would it feel to carry out the jewellery repairs on a loved one’s treasured piece and gift it to them this Christmas?

If you want to repair jewellery as part of a jewellery gift this festive season, here’s all you need to know…

Why are jewellery repairs a good Christmas gesture?

Jewellery in itself is a great Christmas gift. Repairing a piece of treasured but broken jewellery is a really thoughtful, sentimental gift. It really shows that you care enough about the person to go to the trouble of carrying out the jewellery repairs for them. Once the piece has been repaired, it’s ready for the recipient to wear forever more, and they’ll always remember the fact that you went above and beyond to give them something that they love.

What type of jewellery repairs make great gifts?

There are many ways in which you can gift jewellery which has been repaired especially for the recipient. Vintage jewellery repairs are always popular and gifting a piece of heirloom or antique jewellery makes a lovely gift, especially if the piece has been handed down from a loved one. When you repair vintage jewellery which has been handed down, you’re not only gifting the piece to be worn, but you’re also gifting all of the memories behind the piece, too.

Similarly, one of the best gestures when it comes to jewellery repairs as a gift is to take a piece which is special to the wearer but has broken. For example, if your recipient has lost the stone from their engagement ring and it’s therefore no longer being worn, having the stone replaced is a really special gift, making the engagement ring wearable again.

Who should carry out jewellery repairs?

One of the most important things to remember when it comes to jewellery repairs is that you should always use a local jeweller who carries out jewellery repairs on the premises. Some jewellers send pieces away to be repaired off site, but this carries the risk of the piece being lost in transit. By using a jeweller who carries out jewellery repairs on the premises, you can rest assured that the special piece you’re gifting to your intended recipient won’t be lost and will be repaired on site.
