Whether you've been wearing your wedding band every day for 20 years and want to touch it up, or you have some old family jewelry that you'd like to make wearable again, our experts are here to help. We can complete all types of jewelry refinishing projects and return your items to you looking like new.
No matter what type of repairs or services you need, our artisans have the right mix of skills and experience to get the job done right. We also make sure we always have the best available tools and equipment on hand, so nothing can get in the way of them providing the best possible care for your most precious items.
The jewelry refinishing process can involve a wide variety of tasks depending on the type of item being worked on and the state that it's in. However, we always take care to follow the same general outline for each piece.
• The first step we take when refinishing any piece of jewelry is to check all of the gemstones and tighten any that need it.
• If there's engraving present, we'll clean and restore it so it looks like new.
• The last step we take is to re-polish the piece to get it back to its original appearance.
In addition to tightening gemstone settings, we'll also take care to protect any delicate gemstones present in your jewelry while we're working on it. Items like opals, pearls, and emeralds, just to name a few, can easily be damaged if not properly cared for, and we'll make sure that nothing we do impacts them in any way. We'll also take the necessary steps to ensure they're properly protected so they're not vulnerable to damage through the course of normal use.
Our skilled artisans have a great deal of experience working with a wide range of fine jewelry, and that means they can restore just about any type of original detail present. This includes preserving any antiquing the piece had to begin with, recreating the original patina, and even rebuilding settings or other custom metalwork that may have been damaged over time.
No matter what your jewelry needs or how long it's been since it was professionally serviced, our team knows how to get it back to its original glory. We take great pride in offering a wide range of jewelry repair services designed to allow you to keep all of your pieces looking their best no matter how often you wear them or how long they've been with you.
Arlene H. - Berkeley, CA - January 2016 - YelpLove 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 fiancé'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
