We have all seen silver items darken with age. It can be caused by oxidation, or it could be that, over the years, the silver coating has worn away. When that happens, it needs to be recoated if it is going to sparkle again.
We are able to recoat silver and other metals with a coat of up to 20 microns – a heavy and durable coating thickness.
Over a period of time oxidation will cause silver to tarnish and lose its shine. Don’t be fooled into using a chemical dip to clean your silver. They can cause irreversible damage.
Our experienced in-house silversmith will polish your silver items and have them shining like new, including antique silver items.
Our metal polishing service will restore almost any metal surface including, brass, bronze, copper, gold, chrome and stainless steel
Our in-house silversmith can repair and, in some cases, rebuild any damaged item of sterling silver. We can restore antiques and jewellery to look near new.
It is easy to damage treasured items. Don’t assume that they will never look new again. Bring them into Progressive Polishers and Electroplaters factory in New Lynn, Auckland, and we will give you a quote for a silver repair.
