Our work is done on site by a team of jewelers with 40 plus years of experience, and we have most repairs complete in a day or two. Best of all, we make it affordable.

We set or reset stones; tighten and repair or replace prongs; do ring sizing up and down; re-shank rings; repair and re-pin bracelets and necklaces; resize bracelets, necklaces and watch bands; restring pearls and beads; repair most glasses (metal framework); make earrings; create custom pieces from scratch and so much more!
Please come in and let us help you!
Have old jewelry you no longer wear? Broken jewelry that clutters your jewelry box? Coins or bullion gathering dust? We purchase white, yellow and rose gold, platinum and sterling silver pieces, gold coins and silver coins, as well as gold and silver bullion. Unlike most gold buying places, we also include your diamonds and gemstones when purchasing. Sterling silverware and service sets can fetch surprising prices as well. We can even take your gold and repurpose it for something new. Come see us before you take any other offers.
Jewelry Inspection and Cleaning
We strive to inspect each and every piece of jewelry we handle to ensure it is free of defect, and we do this for free. Most times we will assure you that your jewelry is sound, but sometimes we will discover loose or broken prongs, snags in necklaces, weak or broken joints in bracelets, or a host of other issues that can be fixed at a fraction of what the cost would be if stones had been lost, or if complete breaks occurred in the jewelry. "An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure." Let us give you peace of mind in knowing your jewelry was professionally inspected.
We will also clean your jewelry for free, most times while you wait.
Please note that for larger quantities, you may need to leave your jewelry with us, but we will get it completed as quick as we can. Robert's favorite part of his job is seeing our customers reactions upon getting their freshly cleaned and polished jewelry back, as it will look as good as new.
Watch Batteries and Watch Repair
We change watch batteries and set your clocks and watches, only $5 per battery, all day, every day. We can change them while you wait, or you can drop them off and pick them up at your convenience. We also do watch repairs, such as crystal replacement, hand replacement, and minor cleaning. For internal watch movement issues, we will provide a free estimate before any work is done, and give a one year guarantee on services completed. If you have specialty watches, such as for the blind, or watches that can only be set from inside the case, our staff will be happy to assist you with setting them.
Protect yourself and your jewelry by having an appraisal done by our professional staff. Insurance companies need specific information to insure your jewelry, and we have been preforming appraisals for our customers for over 30 years. We individually list each item, detailing gemstone qualities and weights, and assigning valuations based on current market rates.
Already have an appraisal? Is it current? Don't lose thousands of dollars because you failed to update your appraisal. The gold market as well as diamond and gemstone prices can fluctuate drastically, and appraisals from ten years ago will not reflect anything close to current market pricing. We recommend checking with your insurance company to see what their requirements are. Our appraisals start at $65 for the first piece, and $15 for each additional piece. We provide you with two copies of your appraisal, one for you and one for your insurance company. We also keep a copy on file in case you lose yours.
Let us help you protect your investments and your most treasured heirlooms.
Call us at (706) 860-7811 to schedule an appointment.
