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.
Love this place! Short story: We custom made my engagement ring and band (jacket) here. We modeled it from my grandmothers ring to start. We were so happy with the results we had the grooms band made here as well. Long story: We live in California but my fiance's family is in Seattle. We were first intrigued when we found a ring that looked similar to my grandmothers ring that I was trying to copy for my engagement ring. Then I noticed they make jewelry from scratch!! None of this "custom" that isn't really custom (pick a stone and setting). These guys will work with you to make the ring of your dreams. We started by visiting their store over the Xmas holidays and giving them a down payment. Then from California we started communicating through their website's messaging service. I sent the designer (Renae's awesome) a picture of my grandmothers ring, a few pictures from their website and a few from my own research. The designer then makes a cad like model of the ring. You get to work with them to tweak it to your specifications. They'll send you new screen shots of the model with every tweak. When you're happy with the model, they'll send you a 3/4 size 3D printed copy of the ring in the mail for you to feel and get an idea of the design in person. If you want to wear it you'll have to request a full size copy instead. Once you're happy you give them the go ahead to make the ring. A few tips: send pictures of what you want as well as sizes Make sure you're completely happy before they make the ring Don't guess on your ring size Wider rings (for jackets) need larger sizes
