Ring Repair

Sizing

Finger sizes change due to many different factors including diet, humidity, age and exercise. Some rings need special features added to accomidate a finger with a larger knuckle. There are many options to ensure that your ring fits your finger comfortably. We offer ring guards, sizing beads and custom bar inlays that will help your ring fit no matter the circumstance. We work on all men's and women's ring styles. If it can be done, we can do it.

Prongs

Over time, prongs tend to take a beating. Proper upkeep is essential to avoid lost stones. We evaluate prongs for free. If a repair is needed, at your request we can re-tip the prongs on your ring. In some cases replacing prongs or even the etire head of the ring may be necessary to help ensure the safety of your ring and stones.

Shanks

Over time the shank (or band) of a ring may wear thin. If it becomes too thin and pressure is applied (such as when you pick up a heavy object), a fracture or even a complete crack can occur. We replace 1/2, 3/4 and full shanks, keeping your ring looking and performing like new.

Fractures

Is there a fracture in your gold or platinum piece? Fractures can be hairline thin but dangerous. We solder or seamlessly replicate parts of rings, making them safe to wear again.

Broken Chains

Broken links can often be a sign of wear on the necklace; when one goes more often follow. Wear your chain necklace less frequently, or with caution. Broken chains can be repaired by soldering the links back together. We can also replace missing or damaged sections of chains so you can wear your necklace with confidence.

Catches

We repair, replace and custom-make catches for many different types of necklaces, and to fit your specific needs. We also provide "safety-chains" for those who want the extra security.

Backs

We stock sturdy earring backs to replace missing or damaged ones. Some people request their earring backs be changed to a more comfortable or safer style. Options include posts, screw backs or clip styles.

Posts

Earring posts can sometimes bend out of shape, wear thin, or in some cases break with heavy use. You may also desire shorter or longer posts for comfort. We repair and replace posts on earrings, mindful of your personal needs.

Dangles

We solder broken joints in earrings, and if requested, can adapt and reposition parts to face the earring forward instead of to the side.

Replication

Missing an earring? We help you find a replacement or create a match to complete your pair. Or, if you prefer, or if no match is found, we can turn your earring into a pendant.

Damaged bracelets links may be soldered back together, or if necessary in some instances, whole sections may be replaced. We also add or subtract length if requested and check other links for wear.

Clasps

We repair, replace and custom-make clasps for many different types of bracelets, to fit your specific needs. We also provide "safety-chains" for those who want the extra security.

Bangles

Bangle bracelets are very popular, but beware of mass produced bracelets that are hollow and easily dented. We recommend spending a bit extra on heavier made bangles to prevent damage. In some cases, we are able to reshape a dented bangle slightly. We also repair special catches of the bangle variety.
