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.
Chrissy N. - Seattle, WA - April 2016 - YelpThere are many words that come to mind when I think about my experience at Joseph Jewelry, such as AMAZING, OUTSTANDING, EXCELLENT, HONEST, QUALITY, BEAUTIFUL, and GREAT (just to name a few). After several months of searching online and in several different jewelry stores, my fiancé, Alex, and I stopped by Joseph Jewelry in Bellevue since we saw so many great reviews on Yelp. Now, I understand why they've earned every single one of their 5 stars. I would have given them 100 stars if I could! First, their customer service is absolutely outstanding and not pushy at all. The beautiful young lady that helped us, Pascale, was like an angel sent from jewelry heaven. She was very professional and listened to everything we wanted. We had originally just come into look for a groom's wedding band, since we had very little luck elsewhere. We were able to custom design his ring to exactly what he wanted without any hassle. We've looked everywhere to find something he liked without luck, so it was amazing to do a custom design. Although we weren't expecting to find a wedding band for me, I saw something in the case that I fell in love with, but I wanted a few tweaks. Pascale was amazing and helped me design the most perfect, beautiful ring of my dreams. She had great suggestions that I really felt enhanced the look of the ring. A-freaking-MAZING! Secondly, they have a very cool and modern method of communication during the design process where you can communicate directly with the designer through the Joseph Jewelry website. They can show you 3D renderings of your designed ring and can even mock up a 3D printed model for you to hold, feel and look at. They will not start manufacturing the ring until you love every piece of it! We had the pleasure of working with Bonnie and she was incredible. We communicated small tweaks we wanted to the design and she was able to deliver! She had all the details down to a T. Lastly, and I'm sure most importantly to many, in addition to the incredible customer service, the prices of the pieces at Joseph's is very, very fair. I felt like they were truly willing to work with us and our budget. There were many options and alternatives they provided us to ensure that we got what we wanted without breaking the bank. I will happy recommend Joseph Jewelry to everyone I know and I will personally be back for more pieces. Thank you Joseph, Pascale, Bonnie and the JJ team for your kind help. We love our rings. Alex and I look forward to wearing our rings forever and are happy in knowing that there was some serious quality craftsman ship that went into making them. If you visit Joseph Jewelry, please find Pascale and give her a huge hug for me--"hug it out!"
