After learning the ropes and gaining an in-depth knowledge of jewellery, he took over the business with his brother George. Now running our Maidenhead boutique he continues in his father’s footsteps.

Joe specialises in buying in beautiful antique and pre-loved pieces that are proudly displayed in all our boutiques. He’s also motivated to blend the traditional skills and craftsmanship with the demand for digital and online content by creating our website and sharing the day-to-day running of the business and workshops on social media.

Remodelling Your Antique Jewellery

It isn’t uncommon for jewellery to be passed down through generations and there are lots of beautiful pieces from decades gone by. However, sentimental jewellery often ends up sitting in a box rather than being worn. This is usually because it doesn’t fit the person it was given to, a few stones are missing or it has broken links, which is a real shame. Thankfully, this is something an experienced jeweller can assist you with. 

Here at Anthony Paul Jewellery, we provide a jewellery remodelling service and we can give your antique jewellery a new lease of life. If you’ve never thought about remodelling your jewellery and you’re wondering what’s possible, below we have looked into a few of the different ways we can transform the antique jewellery that has been passed down to you. 

Source new stones

Although antique jewellery is known for its impeccable quality, over time stones can easily get lost or damaged. Our team can source replacement stones for you and if there are still some stones in the jewellery, we will do all we can to find new matching stones. We have an extensive range of contacts that can help us restore antique pieces of jewellery with precious and semi-precious gemstones that won’t look out of place. 

Carry out repairs

We’re able to offer a comprehensive range of jewellery repair services and we can make your broken piece of jewellery wearable again. Whether you need a setting rebuilt and a stone reset or a chain soldered back together, for example, we have the knowledge and skill required to complete the job to the highest standard. Our workmanship is exemplary and we can assure you that you won’t be disappointed with the repair work we carry out. 

Re-mount the stones

You might want to use the original stones from a family heirloom and re-mount them into a modern and elegant design that you’re more likely to wear, and we can help you do so. Our talented team can design a new piece of jewellery using the original stones from a ring, necklace or bracelet and we will work with you to create something that you love. We believe that jewellery is made to be worn and our team will happily turn your antiques into something that’s more you. We can help you to preserve the old while creating something new. 

Create a new design

Sometimes, an antique piece of jewellery is too damaged to restore, but we can start from scratch by using old metal to create something wearable. Even if you’ve inherited some scraps of gold, for example, we will work with you to turn them into a piece of jewellery that will remind you of the person who passed them down to you. Almost anything is possible when we’re designing a new piece of jewellery and you can be as creative as you like. Our team will do all they can to make your vision a reality. 

Replicate your pieces 

If you have lost a sentimental piece of jewellery, we can replicate this for you from some pictures or even a description if you don’t have any pictures. We know how upsetting it can be to lose antique jewellery that means so much to you and whilst replicating it won’t give you back the original, it will give you something you can wear again. Our expert team has created lots of bespoke jewellery over the years and you can trust you will be in good hands with us.
