Vintage jewelry requires special care when cleaning and polishing to avoid disturbing the patina that may have built up over decades. Fine filigree or patterns etched into the metal are easy to accidentally scratch off without proper care; accidental damage to vintage jewelry is sadly very common. When restoring your great-great grandmother's heirlooms to the height of their glory, don't settle for a mediocre job that will harm the piece and devalue the jewelry. Going to a jeweler you know and trust is essential to ensure you receive a quality cleaning that maintains the integrity of the piece.
Reset the Clock on your Jewelry
Fine jewelry is more versatile and customizable than generally known. Upgrading to a new engagement band but keeping the same brilliant diamond or replacing a cloudy sapphire with a clearer one are just two examples of how you can upgrade your jewelry by resetting your stones. By working with a knowledgeable jeweler and a beautiful selection of varying gemstones and settings, it's easy to enhance your fine jewelry. Modernizing old pieces, adding new details, and replacing gemstones make your old or inherited jewelry more wearable, giving you more enjoyment while maintaining what matters to you most.
Polishing and Refinishing Services
Necklaces, rings, earrings, and bracelets are worn frequently in close contact with skin and receive accidental bumps and grazes that dull the shiny finish. Antiques with a patina may look dirty instead of old from years of accumulation. Sterling silver tarnishes easily. But your fine jewelry can be made to look like new again with a simple polishing. We'll buff out scratches, clean out crevices, and give your gold, silver, diamond, and gemstone jewelry the new life it deserves with our refinishing services. Whether your fine jewelry lost its shine from years of use or decades of disuse, we can bring back the shine in your metals and gemstones to look like you bought it just yesterday.
A (New) String of Pearls
Even the most beautiful string of pearls will need to be restrung from time to time - as the necklace is worn, the pearls work with gravity to stretch the cord. When you start to see the unknotted string in your pearls, it's time to bring it in to be restrung. Pearls are strung on thin silk cord that breaks easily after a year or more of use. If you wear your pearls often, they should be restrung yearly; with less frequent wear they can last up to three years before the silk string starts to discolor and weaken. Prevent any unfortunate loss of pearls by being proactive in your jewelry care and set a yearly appointment with your jeweler to take care of your pearls and all your fine jewelry.
