All of our artisans have many years of experience creating and repairing fine custom jewelry, and that enables us to provide superior service to all of our clients. But we also make sure to couple their skill and expertise with the latest technological tools available to ensure you receive the best repair services possible no matter what you need us to do for you.
One example of this is the laser we employ for all jobs involving welding of gold, silver, or platinum. The precision of this tool makes it possible for us to complete these types of repairs without endangering any of the gemstones or other custom details in the piece.
Depending on the type of repair job we're undertaking and the particulars of the piece we're working on, we'll follow different specific procedures. But in general, we take care to complete these steps with all custom repair jobs.
While there are other welding tools that can be used on jewelry, lasers offer an unprecedented level of precision. They do this by heating only the specific spot they're directed at and none of the surrounding areas, which makes it possible to complete even the most intricate repairs without damaging heat-sensitive gemstones or other design elements.
The types of jobs that require laser welding of gold, silver, and platinum are many and varied. They include ring resizing, jump ring replacement, clasp repair and replacement, prong re-tipping and replacement, and repair of custom filigree. So no matter what type of welding service you need, our experts have the skills and tools to do the job right the first time.
My wife just birthed our first child, and Joseph Jewelry really came through in making a gorgeous custom piece as a "push present". She is in love with our new son, but the pendant from Joseph is a close second. Birthstone pieces can be ordered online from a retail jeweler, even up to six stones (five different colors for us, the kid, and the dog children), but finding real emeralds, diamonds, rubies, and so on requires a real jeweler like Joseph's. I got to meet and work with Erich Moffitt, who I later learned is not simply a salesman but an accomplished artist: erichjmoffitt.com. I brought him an idea ("family tree") and a bad sketch of my own, and he turned it into something magical right there in the store right on the back of a pad. We went back and forth a few times online with a few more design iterations but really the work is close to his original in-store re-design. It was executed on schedule, close to budget, and in time for the birth. She loves it. It's designed to be expandable for more kids. It's perfect. I will go to Joseph first for any jewelry in the future. Kudos to the team.
