What is the point of having a piece of jewellery, such as a family heirloom if you never get to wear it because it is not to your taste? Our jewellery alteration service can bring a new life into old jewellery so you can enjoy it and wear it again.
we can make completely new bespoke jewellery from any platinum, gold or silver jewellery items, including resetting existing stones.
Pearl bracelets and strands are versatile and sophisticated, pearls can be worn at any occasion without looking out of place. But over time, through everyday wear, residue builds up in between the pearls and softens the material upon which they’re threaded. As the thread weakens, there’s more chance of the strand snapping, and eventually, the thread can look discoloured and tired.
At Infinity Jewellers in Caterham, we’d recommend having your pearls restrung every few years to avoid damaging your pearls should the thread snap during wear.
If you’d like to have your pearls rethreaded, simply pop in to us and we’ll have them rethreaded for you. This process should take up to 2 weeks and the cost is dependent on the size of the item.
All jewellery items are exposed to general wear and tear and require cleaning. We recommend that your most valuable pieces of jewellery should be checked and cleaned at least once a year to avoid any unnecessary breakage or stone loss. Our experts at the workshop can quickly identify any weak spots not seen by the naked eye and prevent any deterioration or stone loss.
Our cleaning service gently but thoroughly cleans any jewellery, whether it is platinum or gold and brings the sparkle back to any diamonds or gemstones.
While some jewellery can be cleaned at home, our specialist cleaning service ensures any delicate jewellery is cleaned without the danger of damage. We have specialist cleaning equipment to gently clean and restore the natural beauty of any jewellery.
Watch Repairs & Servicing
There’s nothing more frustrating than looking down at your wrist to find that your much loved wristwatch has stopped. And many of us don’t realise how much we rely on our watches during the day, until they’re not functioning properly. But rather than coming to the conclusion that you need to buy a new watch, why not bring your beloved timepiece into Infinity Jewellers in Caterham to see if we can get it ticking again.
All of our servicing are guaranteed for 1 year.
A watch can stop for many reasons, but the most common is because it’s in need of a new battery. If you bring your watch in to us, we’ll be able to provide you with a new battery within approximately 15 minutes. Or alternatively, we can provide a battery and reseal which can be done in approximately 10 days. A reseal ensures that your watch will remain waterproof and prevents any unwanted moisture from getting into your timepiece that could affect the way it functions in the future.
If we’re unable to provide a new battery on the day, we can store your watch overnight in one of our secure safes to be attended to the following working day – all items left in store overnight are covered by our insurance.
If you are unsure as to whether we’ll be able to provide you with a new battery, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us via phone or email, we will be able to assist you further.
Battery (approx. 15 minutes*): £8 - £10
Battery and Reseal up to 100m (approx. 10 days*): £35

Or if you select and purchase a new watch strap from us in-store, we’ll fit it for you for no extra charge! Our genuine leather LBS watch straps start from as little as £15, and are available in an assortment of colours and styles.
If your wristwatch needs to be restored to its former glory or isn’t ticking quite like it used to, we can provide you with the option of a watch service. Handled by independent specialists off-site, (all watches handled off-site are fully covered by our insurance).
The amount of time it takes to service your timepiece is entirely dependent on how much work needs to be done, but as a general rule, we estimate a minimum of 2 weeks. Once the watch is in full working order, it is returned to the store and we will call you to let you know it’s ready for you to collect and pay for at your earliest convenience.
In order to receive a quote as to how much the service will cost, the watch will need to be sent off for an estimate. If you decide to proceed with the work to be done, your watch will be returned as mentioned above. However, if you decide not to go ahead with the service, your watch will be returned to you undone. Please note the minimum time for an estimate to take place and be returned to you undone is 2 weeks.
