These services allow you to adjust the size of your jewelry or to replace the clasp of your earrings without altering the aesthetics or original shape. All adjustments are subject to technical feasibility,

Carried out by Cartier specialist jewelers, this service includes several steps:

  • Diagnosis: Cartier’s jewelers take the time to examine your creation and identify the tasks that need to be performed.
  • Re-sizing: The most suitable method will be used to adjust the size of your creation according to its shape.
  • Polishing: The Cartier jewelers will follow a series of steps to achieve a final result that meets Cartier’s requirements for a “mirror-polished” look.
  • Cleaning: Should your jewelry creation permit it, it will be immersed in an ultrasonic tank.
  • Rhodium Finishing: 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 jeweler will then carry out a final check to ensure that your creation meets Cartier’s strict quality requirements.
