Most jewelry stores offer repair services of one sort or another. They may repair clasps on bracelets or necklaces, for example, or attempt to repair a broken time piece. Loose gemstones can be reset, new bands can be placed on watches, or scratches can be buffed out of gold. Very few jewelers offer complete repair and refurbishing services for antique, custom, or fine jewelry.
The main reasons for limited services is a lack of expertise, no qualified professionals available, and no extensive experience repairing all types of jewelry and watches. The vast majority of jewelry worn today is cheap costume jewelry. Those pieces are not made to last, and customers simply throw them away when they break.
A Jewelry Repair Shop in Charleston SC that has been around for decades, such as Gene’s Jewelry & Pawn, has both the expertise, and experience to repair or refurbish all kinds or jewelry and watches. Antique pieces of jewelry that may have been in the family for generations are no problem for experienced professionals. Two certified diamond setters and three goldsmiths are available on the premises to repair jewelry from exquisite custom designed pieces of fine jewelry, to antique brooches and pendants, to old-fashioned pocket watches.
Refurbishing services include restringing pearls and beads, restoring old watches, and resetting gemstones. Pieces are typically completed within five business days and can be completed sooner if needed. All repairs are inspected for quality and are polished and refinished prior to being returned to the customer.
