Joseph Jewelry offers both jewelry repair and antique/vintage jewelry restoration. Our team of craftsmen can size your lovingly worn engagement ring or even rebuild your cherished family heirloom to give it new life.
Joseph's team of highly skilled craftsmen bring over 223 years of jewelry experience to your jewelry repair needs. Combining traditional hand craft with modern technology is our specialty at Joseph Jewelry.
We utilize laser welding equipment to efficiently and safely repair jewelry with delicate or heat sensitive gemstones giving your jewelry new life. We offer everything from watch batteries replacement to rebuilding the prongs on your thirty year old engagement ring. Jewelry is meant to be be worn, and like anything that is used daily, it requires maintenance. We will happily re-shank a wedding set that has been worn thin from years of loving wear or even touch up the decorative engraving that has faded with time. As we change with our lives so does our jewelry. Sizing a wedding band or adding a new birthstone to a family ring, we can help you celebrate life's milestones.
While similar to jewelry repair, restoration of family heirloom requires a different set of skills and care. The commitment to matching the beauty of antique craftsmanship involves dedication, patience and experience in the old world techniques. We can match worn or missing filigree using computer aided design programs, recreate a setting that has been worn from generations of love, even construct a new clasp for a beautiful Edwardian necklace that was lost long ago.
Antique or estate jewelry refurbishing allows you to wear a family heirloom with confidence. The same laser welding technology that helps us to repair sensitive pieces also allows us to safely rebuild your family heirloom. Our hand engraver can reproduce the embellishments of your antique jewelry. We utilize all aspects aspects of our combined skills and resources to give your heirloom the care it deserves.
Reasons for each star: 1st star: you can design your own rings using a variety of pre-made templates or send in your own drawing (or a CD scan if you are capable). I spent hours exploring other sites - this was the ONLY one you could custom design your own completely that I found. 2nd star: customer service was awesome. They weren't pushy and let me take my time. When I was late getting back to them, they (Andrea and Usiel) were patient and got my ring to me just on time. A few days after they started making my order, I decided I wanted to upgrade the quality of the diamond, they were so awesome and had it upgraded almost immediately. 3rd star: when I received the ring, I went through the whole denial stage, "oh man, she's not going to like this... this ring is terrible!..." But after a good half hour of contemplation (while staring at the ring) I fell in love with it and became even more sure of my choice. 4th star: warranty. I don't remember the specifics, but I was impressed when I read them at the time. 5th star: she loves it. This one could have made up for all 5 stars, but I figure whoever reads this would probably like a few more details. Only downside, it came in a kind of lame box. But I didn't use it, so I didn't really care that much. Thanks again!
