Our Services

Whether your jewellery is new or well-loved, we offer a number of services to support your every need, from engraving your engagement ring to trading in well-loved gold for a newer piece.

Engraving

What better way to commemorate a piece of jewellery, given or received, than with a personalized engraving. From initials to family crests, we can add a unique engraving to virtually any piece of fine jewellery.

Insurance Claims

We offer in-house value estimate after loss reports. We charge $75 per item, the cost of which is credited back should you proceed with the claim through our store.

Appraisals

We run monthly appraisal clinics with an independent G.I.A certified gemologist, determining the current value of your jewellery for insurance or estate purposes. We meticulously clean and photograph every piece to ensure accuracy of the appraisal. Please contact us for our next appraisal dates.

Selling Your Gold

We are one of Victoria’s leading gold purchasers. If you have unworn, outdated gold jewellery we will purchase it outright from you.  You can use your old gold as a credit towards a purchase or repair and receive an even higher value for your trade-in.

Selling Your Jewellery

We specialize in buying high-priced fine jewellery and precious stones, from Rolex watches to 10+ carat diamonds. We also frequently purchase large jewellery estates, ensuring a beneficial and efficient transaction.

Repairs & Restorations

Jewellery repair and restoration is a necessity for lengthening the life of your pieces. Whether you need a ring reshanked after years of wear or an inherited necklace restored to its original lustre, we can help. Our in-house master goldsmith has extensive knowledge and experience working with fine jewellery. Her full-service workshop also includes a laser welding machine for fine details or working on items with heat-sensitive stones.

The following list describes our most common repairs however we are able to accommodate other requests. Please contact us with any questions.

Please note that Barclay’s reserves the right to assess the item(s) in person and refuse a ring sizing or repair (refer to sizing tab for further details).

Sizing

Whether your ring fits too loose or a little tight, we can resize platinum, gold and silver rings to fit perfectly.

 

We typically do not take on ring sizing of new rings from another jeweller. If we do size your ring from another manufacturer, we cannot cover any additional repairs that are discovered during the process. This may include additional repairs due to structural issues and/or original metal integrity. Our warranty only applies to the area that was sized. 

 

We do not service online purchases. This includes ring sizing. Please contact your supplier for any servicing and for information on your warranty as more often than not having work done by another jeweller will void any existing warranty. A comprehensive (but not complete) list of online retailers that we do not service from can be found below:

Reshanking

After years of wear, a ring thins on the inside of your hand. We reshank a thinning ring to its original thickness.

Rhodium Plating

Some white gold alloys have a yellow tone that, through wear, can show over time. We plate white gold jewellery with rhodium to provide a bright white durable finish.

Tipping

The claws that secure your gemstones wear over time. To keep your stones safe and secure, we retip the claws.

Soldering

For broken chains, we solder the precious metals back together, strengthening them against future damage.

Restringing

We restring cultured pearl jewellery using fine silk thread.

Setting

We securely reset or replace stones within your piece to prevent you from future loss. We can also match existing stones.

Stone Polishing

Whether scratched or chipped, diamonds and gemstones can be repolished and recut to a new condition.

Restoration

Vintage jewellery can often require restoration after years of wear.  Our master goldsmith can expertly restore your heirlooms to near-new condition.
