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.
John C. - Redmond, WA - August 2016 - YelpAbsolutely first-class experience, start to finish! Recently my wife and I were looking for a ring. While shopping had narrowed it down to one at another store that she felt was the best choice however, she wanted to think it over for a few days. We happened to be in Bellevue having lunch on Main St and noticed Joseph Jewelry. We checked it out on Yelp and the first thing I noticed after the 5 stars was how many of the reviews were long and detailed. To me this exhibits an exceptional experience with that company so we decided to go visit them. From the minute we walked in the door we felt like we were in the right place. The people inside were friendly and helpful plus the jewelry was unlike any other we had seen. We'd never had a custom piece made before and thought it would be somewhat difficult as we are not jewelry designers. A gentleman named Danny approached us and offered us his assistance. He spent a considerable amount of time with us and never once did we feel any sales pressure. It was obvious he simply wanted to help us find that perfect ring to celebrate 32 years together. After my wife found something she liked as an idea, it was really not difficult at all to work out the final design she wanted. Danny was very helpful, was happy to incorporate one of our diamonds into the ring and found the perfect other diamonds to compliment and finished the ring. It was amazing to walk into the back work area and see all the people actually designing the jewelry on 3D computer systems from which they make the molds. They actually make the entire jewelry from an idea to a finished product right in the back. The craftsmanship and quality is incredible. Once we purchased the ring, they kept in regular contact with us through the design process where my wife was able to make some changes, then go in and approve the wax mold. It was fun and made for a great experience. Her ring turned out absolutely beautiful and she loves it! It wasn't until after we had made our purchase that we found out Danny was part of the family business. Honestly, his attitude and cheerfulness the entire time made us feel like we were in the right store and ultimately led to us buying her ring there. Oops, another long review, I understand why now. Our highest recommendation for Joseph Jewelry!
