The Top 5 Most Common Jewelry Repairs
We cherish our jewelry. Whether it was passed down to us, gifted to us, or just a spur-of-the-moment purchase, these accessories hold a deeper value to us than just a price tag. However, unlike most heirlooms, our jewelry goes everywhere with us. And with the frequency of outings, comes the frequency of damage. Strings of pearls break, rings get scratched, and gemstones fall out. That's why we're here.
For nearly 30 years, the community has trusted our team of jewelry professionals with all of their repair needs. Unsure of what your ring, necklace, or watch might need? Continue reading for the most common repairs we've seen in the past three decades.
Have you ever taken a closer look at your stone-inlaid band or engagement ring and noticed a diamond has gone missing? It happens all of the time. Loose or missing gemstones are perhaps the most common of any jewelry repairs. Whether or not you have the now-detached piece, we're able to help get you back in business.
Has your weight shifted? Have you inherited your grandfather's two-sizes-too-small wedding band? Or maybe your best friend gave your now-fiancé the wrong ring size when he started his search? We've heard it all. The fact is we're all built differently, our bodies change, and sometimes the wrong number is written down. When any of this occurs, our clientele comes to us and entrusts in our reliable jewelry repair experts to get their ring to the right size.
Restringing / Repairing Broken Chains
Necklaces get caught, tangled, and torn just like any other delicate object. When your strand of pearls breaks, clasp cracks, or chain knots, our team can help.
Cleaning / Polishing
This may come as a surprise to you, but jewelry gets dirty, gold gets scratched, and diamonds get smudged. For years, we've helped clients with simple cleaning or polishing to give their jewelry that just-purchased look. In addition, frequent cleanings can also prevent long-term damage not easily recognized by the untrained eye.
Remodeling / Resetting
If you are in possession of a piece of jewelry you don't quite love, but you're not quite ready to get rid of, you might want to consider resetting the stone or remodeling the entire piece. Jewelry can go in and out of fashion, but precious and semiprecious stones never do.
It's easy to forget that watches are jewelry, but they most definitely are. It's recommended that watches be serviced every 5-7 years. A full service tends to include both structural and cosmetic repairs, such as disassembling, cleaning, oiling, polishing, and of course, fixing damages. If you aren't interested in a full repair, you also have the option for a part repair, such as a battery exchange or water seal.
