Jewellery repairs on-site
Metal Urges Fine Jewellery run the largest in-house manufacturing and jewellery repair workshop in Hobart, Tasmania.
Our eight member team of Tasmanian jewellers offer a huge range of skills and craftsmanship and can tackle the most demanding repair or alteration. All work is completed in house with no outsourcing of labour – you know where your jewellery is at any given time. It has not been posted to Sydney, Melbourne or further afield, rather it’s safe with Metal Urges. Doing work totally in house also allows Metal Urges to back its own quality of jewellery craftsmanship, we are proud of our quality reputation and do our best on even the smallest jewellery repair jobs.
Quoting is free of charge and we don’t accept deposit or payment until you are totally happy with our work. As a guide to pricing please view our list of services below.
