Jewellery polishing service

The polishing service covers a series of meticulous and delicate operations aimed at tackling marks and scratches spoiling your jewellery creation.

The Polishing Service involves the removal of a thin layer of metal.

Cartier does not recommend this service be carried out often; the characteristics and history of each individual piece of jewellery should be considered before submitting for polishing. Polishing cannot remove deep scratches or dents.

Carried out by a Cartier specialist polisher, this service includes diagnosis, polishing and cleaning. To enhance the whiteness and brilliance of white gold, models are sometimes covered with a thin coating of rhodium. In these instances, the rhodium finishing will require replacement as part of the polishing service.

 

Polishing Service: starting from 90 GBP

Diagnostic

Our Cartier Jewellers take time to examine your creation, so as to identify the work to be carried out.

Polishing

Polishing requires significant expertise in order to avoid distorting your creation’s original form. Our Cartier Jewellers rigorously follow multiple steps to produce the final gleaming result, or "mirror-polished" look for your creation.

Cleaning

Your jewellery creation is cleaned by immersing it in an ultrasonic tank containing warm soapy water.
