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.
Stephen P. - Bristow, VA - July 2016 - YelpWhere to begin. I've never had a piece of jewelry created before and I don't have a $10,000 budget but I found the site for Joseph Jewelry and the reviews and after looking at some local (snobby and expensive) options I decided to try with Joseph Jewelry. I designed the ring online and it was shipped to me as I live on the other side of the country. The process is extremely easy to start. I literally wrote what I wanted and they got right back to me. Mine was not hand-drawn or anything, I took a lot of pieces from their vast array of engagement rings. I had my own ideas as well, some of them worked others did not. The people I worked with were always supportive and genuinely interested in my piece and tried to fit everything I wanted in. They never made any disparaging remarks if something I wanted wasn't possible. When I had a question about the size of the ring they sent me a wax model that helped me understand the size and scope of the ring. This is incredibly helpful and suggest you request it once you have a basic design down. The ring is beautiful, I got a really great price on it, and the fact that it is one of a kind is really special to both me and my fiancé. The only snag I ran into was that I had some trouble having someone sign for the package once it arrived. For some reason they wouldn't give me the tracking number for the package which I found odd but they contacted the shipper directly for me and in the end I actually received the ring a day early. Highly suggested if you are looking for a well priced, unique piece for someone very special. Everyone who saw it fell in love with it.
