When your jewelry becomes too tight or gets damaged, it’s not the end of the line. Get your jewelry repaired as soon as possible before the damage escalates. Be diligent in collecting any pieces that fall off as well, because the jeweler will need them to do the repairs.
What repairs can jewelers do? The most common jewelry repair services include:
- Ring resizing
- Cleaning and polishing
- Watch repair
- Replacing or tightening prongs to secure decorations
- Chain soldering
- Tips replacement
- Diamond and stone replacements
- Prong tightening to secure the colorful stones and diamonds
Before taking any piece of jewelry for repairs, consider if there is any warranty that covers it. It’s common to find that your jewelry is covered by a warranty if items fall off or break. Some jewelers actually provide a warranty or a lifetime guarantee that covers a number of repairs.
The warranties differ from jeweler to jeweler. Some offer a lifetime guarantee or a free yearly cleaning and inspection, while others give a one-year warranty that will cover any damages that occur within that period.
Jewelry Repair Costs
The cost you incur depends on a number of different factors. If your jewelry is under a warranty, then the repairs will not cost you anything at all. Otherwise, cost is affected by factors like the nature and urgency of the repair as well as the cost of the parts.
Find the Best Local Jeweler
It is important to get your repairs completed by a jeweler you trust. This could be a jeweler you have researched online, or a jeweler that a friend recommended to you. It’s worth noting that a warranty might be something you specifically look for in your jeweler.
Remember that jewelry can be insured to protect you from damage or lost jewels. Insurance might seem like an expensive option, but it’s a worthwhile investment if you actually do damage your ring, necklace, or earrings.
