PJ's offers a comprehensive repair service, on jewellery, and watches. Here are some answers to typical questions, plus a price menu on jewellery repairs.
If you want to know more, just call us on 01925 571 207 between 9.30 and 4.30, Mon-Sat or pop into our shop, located inside Warrington Market Hall.
Q. How much does it cost to fix a broken chain or bracelet?
A. It costs from £10 for a basic 9ct gold solder, which would be the type of repair carried out on a curb or figaro chain that had snapped. More complex breaks, or something like a broken flat end piece, which requires extra gold to build up the fastener say, would cost perhaps £15-£20.
Q. How much to replace a watch battery?
A. For most watches the cost is just £5, including fitting and this applies to screwback cases, as well the typical `snap-back' type of quartz watch. Some complicated Swiss brands have retaining clasps, and some digital watches have two batteries, so the cost could be £7.50.
We do not charge a `re-sealing fee,' because unless your watch is a divers wristwatch, the only seal is a thin rubber ring or gasket and these are fitted free.
Q. What's involved in ring re-sizing?
A. To size down a gold or silver ring, the cost is £20 and to size up costs £15 workshop fee, plus £7 per finger size on 9 carat, or £8 on 18/22 carat gold.
Q. Do you carry out repairs on-site?
A. We do some light repairs in our shop; jobs such as straightening rings, sizing up or down one finger size on a special stretching tool, or fixing swivels, jump rings, bolt rings etc. We can also remove or add watch bracelet links on-site, usually while-u-wait.
Costs are £5 for watch links, whilst silver fasteners typically cost from £2.50, and 9 carat gold fasteners cost around £8-£35, depending on the size.
