Jewelry Alterations & Repair

we offer a comprehensive repair department.  we size and repair rings, earrings, chains, necklaces and bracelets.  we string pearls and beads.  if it is broken and a treasure of yours we can probably fix it for you.

sometimes jewelry is covered by your home owner’s or renter’s insurance for loss, mysterious disappearance or damage. we have been approved by most of the national insurance companies to quote and manage these occurrences. we are not insurance experts, though, so ask your agent about specific coverages.

can you fix this!?

all jobs are given a cost estimate and a time estimate because the only surprises we like are good ones!


we can and have repaired fine jewelry, costume jewelry and jewelry your kindergartner made for mothers day!
