Your favorite pieces of jewelry likely get worn a lot. That's what they're for, after all. But over the years, that type of usage results in accumulating wear and tear, which can eventually cause damage to certain areas of the piece. The clasps on necklaces and bracelets in particular are quite susceptible to this, and it's common for them to require repair or replacement at some point.
Whether your clasp is completely broken, or you've just noticed that it seems less secure than it used to, our experts can help. We evaluate every piece individually, but the basic steps we follow for each clasp repair or replacement job are generally the same.
• As with most of our repair jobs, the first step we take is to clean and inspect the entire piece to see what damage exists and if there are any other issues that need to be addressed.
• Next, we'll evaluate whether to repair the clasp or completely replace it, and then complete the work.
• We'll also check the hoops that connect the clasp to make sure that they're securely shut and not in danger of breaking.
• Finally, we'll polish your piece and return it to you looking like new.
We'll always repair an existing clasp as opposed to replacing it with a new one as long as doing so won't risk compromising the piece. Our experts can evaluate the amount of damage and wear the clasp has sustained over time to determine whether a repair will restore proper function or if a replacement is necessary. We'll also make sure there's no damage anywhere else on the piece that needs our attention.
Regardless of whether we repair the clasp or replace it, though, we'll still check all surrounding links and connections to ensure they're strong enough to keep your piece secure. To fortify these connections, we can use lasers to fuse the hoops together, so you don't have to worry about your jewelry slipping off if one of those hoops opens up.
As we do with all fine jewelry repair jobs, we'll refinish your piece, re-plate it if necessary, and polish it for you, so when you get it back, it will look better than the day you bought it. Our professional jewelers can restore any type of finish, and we offer a comprehensive range of services to keep your fine jewelry looking its best no matter how much use it gets.
Vu H. - Tukwila, WA - November 2013 - GoogleThis place is absolutely amazing!!! The service is incredible, they have a HUGE selection of styles and can design anything you can think of! We're very particular and after months of shopping everywhere else, we were able to create the perfect engagement ring. We came in and picked out a few styles that we liked and had them integrate it into one ring. They made a 3-D rendering which helped us visualize exactly what the ring would look like. No other jewelry store that we looked at had this option. They had great communication and kept us informed on the status of our ring each step of the way. We were able to make changes after each 3-D rendering until we were completely satisfied with the design. They then made a wax mold so we could try it on and see it in real life. They have a 100% satisfaction guarantee for all custom rings. We were thrilled that the ring included lifetime cleaning and free check ups to make sure the diamonds are in place. We would highly recommend Joseph Jewelry to anyone who wants a custom made ring that is unique with a lot of attention to detail. We have since been back to design both our wedding rings and will definitely come back again!
