Bespoke Computer-Aided Design (CAD) Jewellery
At GemPort Jewellery Ltd we can design and produce unique, bespoke, fully finished jewellery pieces, just for you.
From your idea or sketch, we can produce a Bespoke CAD (Computer-Aided Design) model to your exact specifications. A photorealistic rendered image will then be emailed to you for your approval.
Once the design has been finalised, we rapidly prototype the CAD model and cast in your required metal alloy.
Our expert in-house goldsmiths can then finish and set the piece or we can simply send you the casting.
GemPort Jewellery Ltd. now offers a high resolution 3D Scanning service.
This digitises physical objects, opening up a new realm of exciting design opportunities.
For example, hands or even faces can be scanned and used to create 3D jewellery pieces, such as pendants for necklaces and bracelets.

At the GemPort workshop, situated within our courtyard, we offer a complete rhodium plating service.
Generally, this service only takes a few days and results in your white gold jewellery being restored to an ‘as new’ condition.
As part of our rhodium plating service at GemPort Jewellery Ltd., we firstly polish your jewellery in order to remove all scratches and traces of old rhodium plating. It is very important to remove old rhodium plating as this causes a very dull and patchy appearance on the surface of the item.
After this, your item of jewellery will be polished to a brilliant shine as the rhodium applied later will only be as bright as the polished surface below.
Then, after the polish has been completed, we immerse the jewellery into an electrolysis chemical cleaner to further enhance the item. This removes any finger prints which show as dark patches on your jewellery if not removed.
Finally, we can now add the all-important coat of rhodium plating, restoring your jewellery to a pristine finish as like the day it was purchased.
Our prices for rhodium plating are generally £30.00 for most rings and other small items of white gold jewellery, and £45.00 for larger items, such as heavy bracelets etc.
We use a new formulated ultra-bright rhodium plating at GemPort Jewellery Ltd., which is far superior to the basic rhodium plating used by most.
Valuations for Insurance
We offer a complete in-house valuation service at GemPort Jewellery Ltd. by a professional registered valuer, Joanne Turner.
Our valuation service offers a full insurance valuation for the replacement of your jewellery, should the need ever arise. As part of the process, you will be presented with a certificate for your valuation.
Our charge for our insurance valuation service is a booking fee of £30.00, which also covers the cost of producing the insurance valuation + 1.6% commission. This basically equates to £46.00 for the first thousand and £26 per thousand thereafter.
The movement of your watch needs to be serviced periodically.
Watches are designed to provide an accurate and reliable service over a long period of time. However, like any sensitive precision instrument, it will need periodic service to ensure that it functions perfectly.
Worn out movement parts and aged oil inside the movement may cause a watch to lose time or stop.
A full service at GemPort Jewellery Ltd. ensures your watch is restored to its original condition and manufacturers specifications.
Before carrying out a service, one of our highly skilled watchmakers conduct a thorough examination of the movement to determine which procedures will be necessary to ensure that your watch will continue to run accurately for years to come.
When servicing your watch at GemPort Jewellery Ltd. we fully strip the movement and every individual component is cleaned and worn parts replaced. The components are then reassembled, lubricated and all functions are tested, regulated and sealed back into the ultrasonically cleaned case.
Testing takes place over a 7- 10 day period where timekeeping, positional error regulation and power reserves are tested.
Our highly experienced watchmakers use classic techniques and state of the art equipment to service and maintain your timepiece to the highest standard.
You can trust that your watch is in very safe hands.
All our watchmakers are qualified with the British Horological Institute.
We are so confident in our services that we are proud to offer a One Year Guarantee on all our watch repairs and Services.
