Joseph Jewelry offers both jewelry repair and antique/vintage jewelry restoration. Our team of craftsmen can size your lovingly worn engagement ring or even rebuild your cherished family heirloom to give it new life.
Joseph's team of highly skilled craftsmen bring over 223 years of jewelry experience to your jewelry repair needs. Combining traditional hand craft with modern technology is our specialty at Joseph Jewelry.
We utilize laser welding equipment to efficiently and safely repair jewelry with delicate or heat sensitive gemstones giving your jewelry new life. We offer everything from watch batteries replacement to rebuilding the prongs on your thirty year old engagement ring. Jewelry is meant to be be worn, and like anything that is used daily, it requires maintenance. We will happily re-shank a wedding set that has been worn thin from years of loving wear or even touch up the decorative engraving that has faded with time. As we change with our lives so does our jewelry. Sizing a wedding band or adding a new birthstone to a family ring, we can help you celebrate life's milestones.
While similar to jewelry repair, restoration of family heirloom requires a different set of skills and care. The commitment to matching the beauty of antique craftsmanship involves dedication, patience and experience in the old world techniques. We can match worn or missing filigree using computer aided design programs, recreate a setting that has been worn from generations of love, even construct a new clasp for a beautiful Edwardian necklace that was lost long ago.
Antique or estate jewelry refurbishing allows you to wear a family heirloom with confidence. The same laser welding technology that helps us to repair sensitive pieces also allows us to safely rebuild your family heirloom. Our hand engraver can reproduce the embellishments of your antique jewelry. We utilize all aspects aspects of our combined skills and resources to give your heirloom the care it deserves.
Chris O. - Seattle, WA - March 2012 - YelpI have to say, I've read a lot of the review and I have to agree with the lot of them. Joseph's was a great place to work with. They kept in contact with us through the entire process and custom designed our engagement rings from scratch. Being that my partner and I work in different industries, we had different needs. He needed a flush mount without channels and I like the texture channels provide. He also wanted a "little" more ornamentation than I did. Joseph (the owner) showed us the lab and introduced us to the people on his team. After we had a general idea his designer Ryan set to work on a 3D rendering of each and we were quite pleased. The rings were then cast in a wax mold so that we could come in and try them on before having the metal cast with the stones. This step provided for a great likeness to the actual rings and we were convinced they were the ones we wanted. From start to finish it took about 4 weeks and they were even completed a few days ahead of when we needed them. All in all, the communication and thorough staff were the key. When in comes to jewelry, like many things, you get what you pay for. And with something I was going to wear for the rest of my life I was willing to pay the price. There were quite willing to work with us on metals, price and options on our budget. I would totally recommend them again.
