Established in mounting and jewellery design, Phelans’ began as tradesmen in Hatton Garden, carrying out repairs on existing and newly manufactured jewellery for retailers in the surrounding area and beyond thus, firmly synonymising the name with exceptional attention to detail and quality craftsmanship. Today repair tasks are still firmly engrained in the services Phelans’ offer providing a mergence of traditional techniques with state-of-the art equipment in their own workshops ensuring efficiency and excellency. As all repairs are carried out internally Phelans can offer a fast and efficient repair service with the majority of repairs taking less than a week.
Where possible Phelans’ never stretch an item in order to size, additional metal in the items main alloy is carefully added in order to maintain its depth and durability. Laser re-sizing is carried out on the majority of ring alterations, which is the very latest in jewellery repair innovation. A flameless method whereby no heat can impede other components such as stones and surrounding metal eliminating any damage that can potentially occur when using an open flame technique. A seamless join is created further strengthening its necessity when striving for perfection eradicating visible sizing burrs.
Acquiring jewellery comes in many forms and holds extreme sentimentality. Sadly items often become redundant due to various reasons such as changing fashions and generational heir looms. Phelans offer a re-modelling design service that can see unworn items remounted and altered according to the needs and specifications of the client, making use of every possible element of the existing pieces. This service is a fantastic way of retaining the meaning and history behind items without having to compromise on personal style.
