Jewellery has been used, not only for adornment, but to commemorate life’s milestones for centuries or obtained for its metaphysical properties. Whether worn daily or just for special occasions, whether a gift, inheritance, a personal purchase or an heirloom, jewellery will, over time, wear and require the attentions of a skilled Jeweller. You may choose to have that heirloom restored to its former glory or choose to have that dated or unwanted item melted, remodeled or remade into a new design without losing its sentimental value. We use your existing gemstones and gold to create a completely new setting, to create a unique timeless piece just for you. We can also source replacements for missing or lost gemstones or match a gemstone for colour, clarity and size. We treat all items left with us with extreme care and all items are fully covered by our insurance whilst in our care. We don’t send your precious jewellery to be made elsewhere as all work is done by Daniel on the premises. Please contact us or make an appointment to see Daniel face to face to discuss your requirements further.
Here at D&D Designer Jewellers, we believe that “your one of a kind love deserves a one of a kind engagement ring”. If you are tired of looking at mass produced rings which might be made fine / hollow to reduce weight or the diamonds or gemstones cut/clarity and/or colour are sacrificed so it can be sold cheaper or the design just doesn't suit your taste? Then we highly recommend making an appointment with an actual Onsite Manufacturing Jeweller (not a business or website that stays custom design and manufacturing but the item is not made onsite and it is outsourced to elsewhere) and getting your ring custom designed and made.

Is your precious piece of jewellery starting to look dull. It might be time to have your jewellery polished, cleaned or rhodium plated. Daniel offers these services onsite. Proper care and handling of your jewellery can help it maintain its beauty and sparkle for years to come. We recommend a six monthly to an annual inspection to promote early detection of wear and tear, which may assist in avoiding gem loss, clasp failure, etc. Daniel offers free jewellery inspection onsite. All jewellery should be treasured and worn with care as an adornment. Avoid contact with household cleaners or chemicals, chlorine, bleach, salt and chlorinated water, perfumes, hair-spray and cosmetics. Do not wear jewellery when showering or cleaning, and never wear jewellery to bed or while participating in sport, as this may cause kinking, snagging or breakage. Even diamonds, although durable, may chip if impacted. Pearls should be restrung once a year. Store jewellery separately, to avoid tangling and knocking together, and use a jewellery roll when traveling. We offer specialist cleaning products for use at home, with advice on which gems and jewellery are suitable for these products, or we suggest a soft toothbrush and a mild detergent.
