Jewellery Repairs at Gold Reserves
We have a fully functional repair workshop with all the latest state of the art equipment situated within the Cardiff store.
We have also teamed up with many specialist repairers and goldsmiths to be able to offer what we believe is the number one repair service available. If we can't do it - it can't be done!
We specialize in
Sizing, Soldering and Setting
And rebuilding/re-making of old an worn items that you may think are not able to be brought back to life!
Our prices are extremely competitive and turnaround times are the best in the industry. Many repairs can be done the same day at the Cardiff store, or you can drop off at any of our other branches for a one week turn around (we can sometimes have a quicker turn-around if you have a jewellery 'emergency')!
Take a look at a few of our before and afters!
What Is Rhodium Plating?
Rhodium is the World's most expensive precious metal! It is used to plate White Gold, Platinum and in some cases Silver Jewellery. This is done to give a tarnish resistant pure-white appearance to the metals. It is also hypoallergenic so less likely to react with sensitive skins.
If your white precious metal jewellery is starting to lose its shiny white lustre and starting to go dull or slightly yellowing, the chances are it needs re-rhodium plating.

We have invested in state of the art cold plating equipment to re-finish you worn wedding ring or other jewellery to make it better than new and to give you a long lasting finish. This process is not to be confused with inferior 'pen plating' systems used by most other jewellers.
