Jewellery adjust or repair
Because it is precious and you are attached to it, your jewellery creation deserves our utmost attention. By entrusting it to Cartier, you will be preserving its shine and longevity.
HOW TO REQUEST A REPAIR?
For the repair or maintenance of your Cartier creation, we are pleased to offer you the option to maintain your creation in the Cartier boutique of your choice.
Cartier's master watchmakers and jewellers will take care of your piece thanks to their universally recognised expertise and know-how.
The services listed below are intended to maintain and personalise your creations.
In the majority of cases they are carried out in our boutique.
All of these services are offered by the Maison.
Has your jewellery creation lost its shine or has its surface become scratched? The shining service allows Cartier to restore your creation's original shine and to remove all superficial scratches. It includes a diagnosis, buffing, cleaning and a technical and aesthetical check of your creation. If necessary, a rhodium-finishing bath will be carried out to restore your white gold creation.
Shining service: complimentary
The engraving service enables you to personalise your Cartier creation by having either a name, phrase or date (in several languages) or a symbol or design engraved on it (subject to technical constraints and the space available).

This service allows you to increase or reduce the size of your bracelet, necklace or ring, or to replace the clasp of your earrings, subject to technical feasibility, without altering the aesthetics or original shape.
Carried out by Cartier specialist jewellers, this service includes several steps:
- diagnosis: Cartier’s jewellers take the time to examine your creation to identify the tasks that need to be performed.
- re-sizing: we will suggest the most suitable method to adjust the size of your creation according to its shape.
- polishing: this stage requires particular expertise to avoid distorting your jewellery piece. The Cartier jewellers will follow a series of steps to achieve a final result that meets Cartier’s requirements: a “mirror-polished” look.
- cleaning: if your jewellery creation permits it, it will be immersed in an ultrasonic tank.
- rhodium finishing, if necessary: white gold and platinum can be rhodium-finished to enhance the creation’s whiteness and brilliance. Before polishing, the remaining layer of rhodium is removed. After polishing, the creation is immersed in a rhodium bath.
The jeweller then carries out a final check to ensure that your creation meets Cartier’s strict quality requirements.
The first re-sizing and clasp replacement is complimentary, and £165 after that.
