The Importance of Jewelry Repair

Jewelry repair can be similar to any household problem. You don't wait to fix a leaky roof until the whole roof has to be replaced.  You fix the leak before you have to replace the roof. Even if you don't know the first thing about jewelry, other than it's pretty and fun to wear, it is important to take your jewelry to a professional.

When faced with broken jewelry you may think to yourself, "I don't remember hitting it or catching it on anything." Then you take it to your local jeweler and  they show you all the dents and dings under a microscope. If you never take your jewelry off for tasks such as washing dishes, putting away laundry, or even going to bed, you may be unaware of the beating your jewelry is actually taking.

Why Is Your Ring Dull?

You'd be amazed at all the things that can get stuck in your jewelry, dulling its sparkle. Lotions, perfumes, paint, and even hair can be found in the nooks and crannies of your jewelry. Periodically you should have it cleaned. It's a great opportunity to have any maintenance needs addressed. Cleaning is usually complimentary for a few items and you'll be amazed at the difference a little scrubbing can do.


How Can You Extend the Life of Your Jewelry?

  1. having your jewelry routinely checked.
  2. Most earrings are lost because of switching the earring backs. Bring them in for a cleaning (our ears can be more gross than we realize) and have the backs checked.
  3. Dull engraving? Before it completely disappears have a hand engraver go back over and re-engrave the details you fell in love with.
  4. Not wearing a necklace because it's too long or short? Necklaces can be shorted or sometimes extended without going through the hassle of buying a completely new one. Another easy fix.
  5. Love a necklace or bracelet but hate the clasp? You don't have to be married to it. All clasps can be easily changed.
  6. All clasps need to be checked for security. You don't want to look down one day and find that your favorite necklace or bracelet fell off and you didn't realize it.


If your jewelry has a missing stone or a broken chain,  don’t store it in your jewelry box forever because it's suffered from a little wear and tear. When it comes to your jewelry, there's really no excuse not to get it fixed. Drop by and we’ll triage your treasures.

I absolutely hate when I lose a piece of jewelry! I don’t buy jewelry often but when I do I buy a bit more expensive and quality pieces. So when I lose a piece, it is awful! I didn’t know that clasps could be changed and that earring backs could be checked. Those are the pieces I lose the most since they are always slipping out of my ear!

I had no idea jewelry could be repaired in so many ways and so easily. My friend is so upset because the engraving on her ring is wearing out. I will have to tell her that her ring and her matching bracelet can get re engraved. Thank you for the awesome post!

Your garnet birthstone ring is one of your favorite pieces of jewelry. It has intense sentimental value -- your mother gave it to you when you graduated from college.

We’ve seen this situation hundreds of times; you are afraid that your favorite piece will break when exposed to the wear and tear of everyday life. What should you do?
