Warrenders Top Tip: Bring your jewellery with you to your outfit fittings and hair trials. It helps you work out the best chain length to go with the neckline of your dress, or the perfect hairstyle to really show off those beautiful earrings.

Something Borrowed

If you choose to borrow a family heirloom or a treasured piece from a loved one, it is really important to make sure everything is secure and in really good condition. As jewellery ages, clasps can weaken and settings loosen. To avoid loss or damage, getting sentimental jewellery checked by a professional before your big day is a really good idea.

Our team is more than happy to give your jewellery a once over and advise if the piece needs any repairs. We offer a range of expert jewellery services including remodelling, ring adjustment, restoration, Rhodium plating and jewellery cleaning and polishing. We can ensure your special piece is secure and fits perfectly, so you can relax and focus on enjoying every moment of your wedding day.

Warrenders Top Tip: Get all jewellery – particularly your engagement ring - professionally cleaned and polished or re-rhodium plated before your big day. It ensures all your jewellery looks absolutely stunning next to your new weddings rings.

Your Wedding Rings

Wedding planning can sometimes feel a little overwhelming. Working out your non-negotiable areas can really help you focus your budget on what is important to you. For some that might be the perfect location or maybe securing the photographer of your dreams, but one area we suggest you do not compromise on is your wedding rings.

Although these tiny jewels can get overlooked in the midst of wedding planning, you wedding ring is the one thing you will wear day in, day out for the rest of your life, so quality is key.

£1,895.00

18ct Diamond Eternity Ring

Warrenders Top Tip: Try on your new wedding rings a few weeks before your big day. You may have ordered them months in advance and not considered that your size might have changed so do give yourself a few weeks in case any alterations do need to be made so that they can be back for you to collect in plenty of time.

Making the most of Vintage and Antique Jewellery

Making the most of Vintage and Antique Jewellery

With a history and life of its own, we are only a chapter in the story of vintage and antique jewellery. As caretakers of these beautiful pieces, it is our role to keep them loved and well looked after, ready to be enjoyed by their next custodian. 

Keep scrolling for our top tips on caring for older jewellery plus our favourites from our current vintage collection. 

Vintage and Antique Jewellery Care

Whilst modern jewellery is often made with resilience in mind, many vintage pieces have a more delicate design. This means a little extra care is required to keep these treasures looking their best. 

Keep away from chemicals

Planning on spring cleaning? Take off those jewels! Not only will chemicals dull the shine of your favourite pieces (new or old), over time they will gradually decay the precious metals and gemstones beyond repair. 

The finishing touch

Lotions, perfumes and cosmetic creams can clog up the settings in your jewellery, making them appear lack lustre. There is an easy fix, just make sure your jewellery is the last thing you put on when you are getting ready.

Store it well

The best way to store any type of fine jewellery is in a soft lined jewellery box. This is particularly important with delicate vintage and antique pieces to minimise scratches, chipping and other damage whilst stored.

Brush it off

After wearing it is a good idea to give your vintage and antique jewellery a gentle clean with a soft cloth. This helps to remove dirt or oils from the day, which in turn reduces how often you need to have your piece professionally cleaned by us!

Bring it to the pros!

Whilst a soft cloth might help reduce the required frequency of a pro clean, to keep your antique and vintage pieces in the very best condition, a trip to see us at Warrenders is advised. Not only will you be surprised at the transformation these older jewels can have, we will also give your piece a thorough check for signs of wear and tear which could lead to significant damage or loss if left unresolved.

Now you know how to look after your collection, here are some of our favourite pieces from our current range of vintage and antique jewellery.

Meet Our Goldsmith

Meet Our Goldsmith

As a jewellery firm with a history that spans seven decades, we know the importance of quality. From the jewellery we display and the incredible customer service constantly given by our team, to the level of care, skill and precision provided through our jewellery services. Exceptional quality is the backbone of everything we do here at Warrenders and from our staff to our jewels, we only employ the very best.

With this in mind, in honour of Repair Week we chatted with our expert goldsmith, Steve, about the importance of high-quality jewellery repairs…

Tell us a bit about yourself - how did your career start as a goldsmith and what do you most love about your role?

Goldsmithery is in my blood. My father was a Goldsmith, so I grew up appreciating the finer intricacies of jewellery making and repair. I started my journey as a Goldsmith by attending Sir John Cass College of Art & Craft before working alongside my father as an apprentice.

I love working with all aspects of jewellery, particularly restoring jewellery I know is precious to the owner. With the right care, beautiful fine jewellery can be loved, worn and passed down for many generations. 

As well as crafting beautiful new jewellery, you specialise in bringing much loved pieces back to life. Is anything ever beyond repair?

Sadly yes, sometimes things are beyond repair. However, with most items, if I’d had the opportunity to repair them sooner, that would not be the case. That said, there are always ways to bring loved jewellery back to life, whether that is fixing the existing piece or, if that is not possible, taking the gemstones from worn out jewellery and remodelling them into something new.

What is the most common jewellery repair you see in your workshop?

Whilst no two repairs are ever the same, the most common repairs I see include adding new clasps to necklaces and also adjusting the size of rings. Both of these are really important repairs to consider when reviewing your collection. Broken or worn clasps often result in the loss of much loved jewellery and rings that don’t fit comfortably usually end up lying at the bottom of a jewellery box. They are such easy fixes, but result in a brand new lease of life for your item. 

What is the best way to ensure a long life for your favourite pieces of jewellery?

My top tip to anyone wanted to prolong the life of their jewellery is to make sure you bring your pieces for regular professional inspections and check-ups! Bringing your favourite pieces to Warrenders on a regular basis allows the experts to identify signs of wear that you may miss. Worn claws and weaknesses in chains can be hard to spot and if missed can result in loss or further damage. Let the pros keep on top of your jewellery maintenance and those beautiful pieces will survive for generations to come!

11th - 17th March is London Recycles Repair Week, so during that week we will be offering free jewellery repair appraisals as well as double loyalty points on all repairs brought into our Cheam Road store.

Remodelled Pendant

Remodelled Sapphire Pendant

This beautiful pendant was designed and created using diamonds from two of our customer’s existing rings, along with a gorgeous blue sapphire.

“From the very start with the initial design, suggestions and advice, the service has been exceptional. I am delighted with the finished pendant and want to give special thanks to Gemma for all her help.”

Roman coin commission

Unusual Roman Coin Commission

Turning old into new, we were lucky enough to work on this unusual and fascinating commission. Our customer came to us with an inherited set of spoons each housing an ancient Roman coin. The coins were found long ago by her great-grandfather whilst excavating in Greece. He had turned one coin into a ring and the other three he had set into spoons, all of which now belonged to our customer.

Using the original coin ring as a guide, we carefully remounted the coins into rings for our customer's three sons, giving them each an ancient piece of family history to treasure.

Before ring After Ring

Back to Beautiful

This stunning diamond was housed in a setting worn and damaged by decades of wear. We transformed the inherited piece back to its former glory, replacing the damaged band and remounting the beautiful stone in a fresh new setting.

Family bracelets

Sentimental Family Bracelets

These beautiful bracelets were created for our dear customer Mrs Todd and they hold a tender story of family love.
From a gold cigarette case inherited from her grandfather, Mrs Todd asked us to create gold trilogy links to represent herself, her sister and her brother who had sadly passed away.
Some of the trilogy links we made were turned into a beautiful pair of matching bracelets, one for her and one a gift for her sister who was recently married. On the wedding day the sisters swapped their identical bracelets to form the bride's 'something borrowed' and also provide a loving tribute to their brother.

The Science of Colour - Jewellery to Elevate Your Beauty

The Science of Colour - Jewellery to Elevate Your Beauty

We all know that incredible jewellery can transform your look, and although we are firm believers that you should choose the jewels that you love, the science of colour is an interesting one. Whether it is the way the right precious metal can instantly brighten your skin, or how the sparkle of a certain gemstone can light up your face. Keep reading for our tips on jewellery to elevate your natural beauty.

Skin Tone

If you are interested in tailoring your jewellery collection to complement your look as well as your style, then working out your skin tone is a great place to start.

Already a popular tool in the world of make-up and fashion, knowing your skin tone can be a wonderful starting point to curating your jewellery collection. There are two main skin tones, which are cool and warm. You can work out which category you fall into, by inspecting the veins on your inner wrist in daylight. If your veins appear blue or purple-ish then you are likely to have a cool skin tone, if they appear on the greener side, then your skin tone is probably warm.

The Best Precious Metal for Your Skin Tone

Obviously the science of colour can go far deeper than this, however, as a basic rule of thumb, white metals like white gold, silver and platinum best suit cool skin tones and work to brighten your complexion.

For warm toned skin, the richness of yellow or rose gold metals highlight the natural golden tones in your skin, adding radiance to your complexion.

Some lucky skin tones sit in-between cool and warm, benefiting from the beauty elevating qualities of both gold and silver metals.

Gemstones to Make You Shine

Much like with precious metals, the right gemstones can also work to boost your natural beauty and skin tone can be used as a guide for this.
Cool skin tones look fantastic paired with beautiful brights like red, blue and purple. For example true red rubies, deeply saturated rich blue sapphires and the glorious hue of amethyst. Topaz, Tanzanite and emeralds also look gorgeous on cooler skin.
Warm skin is enhanced with orange, yellow, turquoise and warm greens like peridot. Examples of gemstones which are perfect for warmer skin tones include citrine, aquamarine, morganite, orange sapphire and yellow diamonds.
While this could be used as a guide when it comes to choosing your next piece of jewellery, wearing a piece you love is the most important factor in decision making.

This beautiful pendant was designed and created using diamonds from two of our customer’s existing rings, along with a gorgeous blue sapphire we sourced. We are pleased to say she was absolutely over the moon with her Warrenders creation:

"From the very start with the initial design, suggestions and advice, the service has been exceptional. I am delighted with the finished pendant and want to give special thanks to Gemma for all her help."

Created from a brooch our customer didn't wear, we carefully adapted the fastening without making any changes to the beautiful design, transforming the piece into this stunning pendant.

In celebration of our customer’s diamond wedding anniversary, we reimagined an inherited solitaire ring into this jaw dropping design, fit for 60 years of love. Featuring a nod to our customer’s original aquamarine engagement ring, the piece showcases the inherited diamond at its heart, beautifully supported by gleaming platinum and diamond encrusted shoulders.

We remodelled this diamond ring into something more our customer's style. Keen to keep the original mount for a future project, we carefully unset the two beautiful diamonds and used them in this modern, asymmetric design.
