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.
Malika K. - Seattle, WA - March 2015 - GoogleWorking with Joseph Jewelry on our custom design project was truly exceptional. As designers ourselves, it was important to us that we could work with a jewelry designer who could fabricate our vision down to the last millimeter. Joseph Jewelry's designers and artisans were able to provide us with a very positive and patient collaborative experience. We also felt that Joseph Jewelry's designers were truly excited and engaged in our design concept, which really enhanced what was a collaborative endeavor! Plus it made us feel good that the experts were enthusiastic about the direction we were going with our design! Joseph Jewelry's designers were able to work directly with our 3D digital design files, sketches and inspirational photos, providing feedback and helping us to make adjustments to our 3D digital design models. Ultimately, this improved the long-term quality and viability of the finished product. Once the design was finalized the team used a process of digital fabrication to make a physical prototype of our jewelry before the casting was completed in precious metals. This was absolutely the best part of the design process – being able to see a physical representation before going forward! It's probably the smartest service you can seek out in a jeweler and Joseph Jewelry has both 3D printing and milling available! Additionally, we were really impressed with their specialized online customer interface, which provides you with a direct conduit to your jewelry designer – a online service exclusively design for Joseph Jewelry. We were able to upload images back and forth, and have a discussion board for collaboration which was fantastic and becomes a place to come back again and again with any questions regarding your jewelry long after the project is complete! For hands-on customers with a very specific design vision and story for their special piece, but who may need that extra support when moving into fabrication we HIGHLY recommend Joseph and Danny's team at Joseph Jewelry. Even if you only have a glimmer of an idea for where you want to take your project, with a majority of their beautiful in-store jewelry being custom designs, Joseph Jewelry truly excels in understanding the complexities of custom jewelry design and fabrication.
