Professional Jewelry Repair & Restoration

After many years of experience in the jewelry market, we realized that most Women become very attached to their jewelry and place a very high sentimental value on it, regardless of the materials that the piece is made of.

Any piece of jewelry is a memory of a gift, a special person, an important time or occasion in your life or simply, the perfect accessory for your favorite dress. Normally your favorite jewelry is subjected to normal wear and tear, even if the cost of the item was $50.00 or $10,000.00, it is very disappointing when it breaks or malfunctions. At this time your jewelry will need some repairs and adjustment or a complete restoration.

It is possible to find a good repair jeweler in your neighborhood for some of your sizing, stone replacement and regular maintenance. Most repair jewelers are very limited, as to what they can do with vintage jewelry and most will not work on costume jewelry. The main reason is that the techniques used to repair precious metal jewelry like platinum, gold, silver and gemstones are completely different from the variety of colorful but unpredictable materials used in costume jewelry manufacturing.

We have restored a wide variety of precious family heirlooms bringing them back to their original beauty. Restorations as simple as replacing a missing single cut diamond on a Victorian ring to as complex as rebuilding the under carriage of a large antique gemstone ring and re-polishing the main gemstone. All restoration projects are treated with the same care and attention to detail as the original craftsmen would have used. We only add modern techniques and state of the art Laser Technology to the old world craftsmanship.

At RestoreJewelry.com we specialize in restorations, repairs and alterations of vintage and estate precious metal jewelry as well as costume and alternative jewelry, which includes: costume, faux , vintage, estate, imitation, resin, brass, copper ,bronze, gold, silver, platinum, rhinestones, gemstones, titanium, tungsten, stainless steel, palladium, pewter and aluminum jewelry.

A custom jewelry design starts with an idea, a concept, drawing, magazine ad or internet picture. This progresses in stages through the design and manufacturing, stone setting and finally detailing, ending in a sparkling new custom, one of a kind, fine jewelry design.

We use state of the art cad-cam technology for the more intricate designs and parts manufacturing and hand carved wax models when more appropriate.

Laser (Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation) technology opens the doors for restoration, repair, and manufacturing work previously thought impossible. Unlike traditional repairs that require heating large areas, the computer controlled laser beam pinpoints heat at precisely where metals are to be joined.

This controllable heat accuracy effectively eliminates the normal risk to heat-sensitive gemstones.

In the past, these stones would need to be removed, putting them at risk for damage during the removal or resetting processes. Previously, heat shielding on gemstones, or submersion of the jewelry in water could alleviate these risks, but not completely ensure gemstone safety.

All gemstones are at risk for heat damage. A traditional platinum sizing job can literally melt or explode diamonds! Starweld technology allows for pinpoint heat control at microsecond intervals - keeping your gemstones safe from heat buildup.

The completed repair is invisible; and the structural integrity of the fused metal is 95% of that of the original, as opposed to the 15-20% comparison for traditional solders. Further, the accuracy and close range allowed by this technology are similar to, if not more precise than many surgical procedures.

Laser welding allows repairs as close as 0.5mm to intricate or complicated parts. For antique pieces with intricate detail, which were previously impossible to repair, StarWeld technology provides the only viable way to return the jewelry to its original condition.

Ever had to have a ring repaired again because of a "cold solder joint"? Not anymore! Laser Welding is completely unlike solder in that it fuses the metals together.

Nothing beats Laser Welding for Platinum work. Platinum is a metal that must be welded, either by torch or by Laser. Torch welding heats the entire piece, gemstones and all. This type of heat opens up many problems with visible sizing joints, melted links, burnt stones, and brittle prongs. Laser Welding technology puts the heat where it's needed, without changing the structural integrity of the rest of your valued piece.
