Specialists in the repair of Jewellery
In our onsite workshop, Kaanaanmaa carry out high quality Jewellery repairs from a simple chain repair or ring sizing, to a total ring remounting. Owners Gary & Stephen and their workshop team has over 80 years of experience in Jewellery repairs and alterations.
Using a combination of traditional skills and techniques, alongside the latest Laser technology, will bring your Jewellery back to its former glory.
In the last few years, we’ve noticed recycling older or unworn jewellery is becoming more and more popular. This is often for environmental, sentimental and economic reasons. Many people have a box full of rings, chains or jewellery that they have collected or inherited, often the wrong size, in need of repair or not to their particular taste.
We can melt down most examples of old jewellery and rework it into something new and unique, adding more precious metal if required and sometimes using your gemstones. We can of course source new ones. Using this technique we can create many items of jewellery, from rings and bangles to pendants and brooches all the while keeping an emotional connection to the past.
Having dedicated his life to making wonderfully fine jewellery Stephen joined the Kaanaanmaa team in 1990, at the tender age of 16, and bought the company with his friend and business partner, Gary in 2001. Stephen loves nothing more than creating in Kaanaanmaa’s onsite workshop. One of the most enjoyable aspects of Stephen’s work is that each day brings a new challenge.
