Jewelry Repairs

Complimentary Inspections & Estimate on Repairs 

All of our goldsmiths have many years of experience repairing, and designing modern, and antique jewelry. Our expert goldsmiths are equipped with the latest technology so every item will be repaired with the highest industry standards. 

Laser Welding 

Laser welding gives the ability to do precision work on specific spots of the item. Only the specific spot is heated, not the surrounding area.

This makes it possible to complete the most difficult repairs without damaging heat sensitive gemstones, or sacrificing any design elements. 

Sizing Beads

To make your ring smaller using sizing beads, we'll simply adds two small metal balls on the back part of the inside of your ring. They're perfect for reducing a ring by one half-size and help your ring sit upright on your finger.

Rhodium Plating 

Does your white gold ring look dull or have a yellow tinge of color? If so, you may want to consider having your ring rhodium plated. This is a standard process in the jewelry industry. A rhodium plating will give your ring a shiny ultra white appearance. 

Stone Tightening 

Have you noticed a loose stone in your ring? Rings are the most common piece of jewelry that is knocked around. Over time this could loosen the setting. A simple stone tightening could prevent any lost stones. 

Ring Resizing 

A proper fit for a ring is essential. Too loose and you risk losing it. Too tight and it's uncomfortable and hard to remove.

We size gold, platinum and sterling silver. 

Prong Replacement  

There are many types of prongs that hold gemstones securely in place. These prongs become worn, bent, brittle, or broken over time. Our goldsmith will replace, or re-tip as many prongs as needed to secure your gemstones. 

Chain Repair 

Chains may accidentally break , develop weak areas. We can advise to replace or laser/solder your chain.

Restringing Pearls and Beads 

Did you know your pearls should be restrung every 2-5 years? Starting at $2.50 per inch, strung with silk thread. We can string with or without knots.
