Jewelry Repairs from the Locals You TrustNov 13th, 2017
From your grandfather’s watch to your go-to diamond studs, you treasure your jewelry. Your favorite pieces are more than just great accessories, they’re living links to your favorite memories and you don’t want to hand them over to just anyone for repairs. We totally get that. But just like your home or your car, it’s important to maintain and repair your fine jewelry to keep it in top condition.
That’s where Koerber’s comes in. Unlike chain jewelry stores that outsource their repair services, Koerber’s is proud to staff two certified master jewelers who are equipped with the latest technology to help with any of your repair needs from ring sizing to soldering and everything in between. And remember, if you purchase your engagement ring at Koerber’s, it comes with a Lifetime Warranty that covers everything except the center stone.
Here are a few of the most common jewelry maintenance and repairs that we can help with:
- Ring Resizing: There are any number of reasons why you might need your ring to be resized, but we recommend being professionally sized by one of our staff before making a final size choice. Limiting the number of times you resize a ring helps maintain its strength and quality, so we discourage having your rings sized for temporary weight fluctuations, weather changes or other impermanent conditions.
- Setting Loose Stones: Don’t procrastinate! If you notice one of the stones in your favorite item of jewelry is loose, bring the piece in right away. Our team of master jewelers can easily reset a loose stone or repair a broken prong before you lose a costly or even irreplaceable gem.
- Broken Clasps: Over time, the clasps on necklaces and bracelets can become stiff, tilted, loosened or bent. In these cases it’s best to have one of our master jewelers replace the clasp with a quality metal and professional solder to avoid losing the piece at an inopportune moment.
As your local jewelry experts, we’re also happy to help with appraisals, polishing, and unique repair solutions for vintage jewelry and one-of-a-kind pieces. There aren’t many repair jobs we can’t handle. Just stop by to chat with one of our master jewelers, and enjoy a complimentary jewelry cleaning during your visit.
