A New Year, A New Setting. Remounting a stunning Pear shaped diamond for our client

This Pear shaped diamond needed a new setting, and it had to be identical in design to the original ring (without the wear of course).

With this ring, it was necessary to make a wax model from the stone’s dimensions, along with the dimensions of the brilliant cut diamonds that surrounded it, hence the purple ‘ring’ in this montage.

From the wax model, it was possible to produce the new settings and shank. This ring is made from 3 parts. The top plate which holds the stones, the under gallery that supports it all and finally the shank. It was then that the diamond setter's skills come to the fore, to finish the ring off and produce many smiles from a happy client.

A watch lovers dream at Buchanans Jewellers in Lymington

Every now and again something wonderful is brought into us for advice and this is no exception.

This watch, housed in an 18ct yellow gold case, hides a very intricate movement.

Apart from telling the time, this watch has a chronograph function with a flyback sweep seconds hand so that you can time events as they start and finish.

But, the gem of this watch (as if being a chronograph wasn’t enough) is that by pressing the button that is at the top of the image the watch will tell you what the last hour and the last ¼ of the hour was by sounding on two gongs that run around the outside of the movement and inside the case.

And when this watch was made, that was a fantastic piece of micro engineering with all the parts drawn on paper by hand and made by hand.

Much excitement in Buchanans
