We can reclaim your diamonds which are set in gold, platinum and palladium Jewellery.
We use a procedure which involves various acid processes, which fully dissolve the precious metal, leaving the diamonds behind.
Each job is treated individually and all diamonds are returned along with a payment for the recovered precious metals. The standard processing lead time is three to four weeks from receipt, but timescales may vary, depending on workload.
We do not recover silver from this process.
The process is designed for diamonds, which are the hardest precious stones and will be delivered back to you in perfect condition. Treated stones or stones with deep inclusions, may be affected by the process.
Softer or treated gems could discolour or possibly become damaged by the process. If your jewellery contains pearls or opals, the corrosive acids will damage them, so if you want to keep these, it’s best to have them removed by a jeweller.
The reclaimed stones are returned to you, and your metal, smelted, assayed and then valued for payment.
If the stones are set in platinum, the process may take longer, as platinum is very hard and may need to be repeatedly treated.
