Many estate jewelry pieces are one-of-a-kind, and they may hold a great deal of sentimental value for you as well. Whether you'd like us to restore a piece that's been in your family for generations, or you recently purchased an older piece that you need repaired, our experts are up to the task.
With over 20 years of experience in estate jewelry repair, each of our jewelers brings a complete set of skills to each job. Because many of these types of pieces were made using older techniques, and because of the age of the materials, we take care to treat each piece as if it were our own. However, to ensure uniform quality in our services, we follow the same general outline of steps for each estate jewelry repair job we take on.
Many estate jewelry pieces are very old, which means they require special care so as to avoid damaging certain elements. They may also contain damaged or specialty-cut gemstones that need to be replaced.
Fortunately, our experts can match any gemstone for color, cut, and quality, and we'll find the perfect replacement if that's what's needed to make your piece truly shine. We also take care to use only the most precise laser tools for repairing metal areas, as this technology lets us complete detailed work without risking damage to gemstones or other heat-sensitive areas of the piece.
No matter how damaged your piece is, our professionals can restore it and make it beautiful again. We'll identify the type and color of the metals used in order to obtain an exact match if we need to add new metal anywhere. And we can redo all types of custom engraving and metalwork so that the piece's original details really shine through.
So from minor repairs to full restoration jobs, you can be sure that our expert jewelers have the skills and experience needed to get the job done right. And if you'd like to see a different type of finish added to the piece or any other update, we can take care of that as well.
I went to Joseph Jewelry to look at engagement rings. They were so nice and showed me the various ways they design jewelry with CADs. As an engagement ring fanatic, my poor SO, I was impressed by the quality of their settings. I looked at many of them intent on finding a flaw that would make me say no way. But, in fact, their prongs were gorgeous (I'm a prong freak) and their pave was beautiful. We have been to more than 20 stores, but this was one of the first stores that I, honestly, liked their work. I could find no flaw in the settings. If my SO decides not to purchase my ring in NYC, we will definitely be getting it from here!!!
