Jewelry Repair & Restoration

Restore fine jewelry to its original beauty. From simple sizing and stone tightening, to more intricate stone settings and hand-designed pieces. We specialize in restoring old jewelry such as vintage, antique or estate jewelry. Restoration services range from replacing a missing old style diamond on an antique ring to complete restoration or making it into something else.

 

Custom Jewelry Design

The custom design process is a great way to express yourself. At Golden Classics, we will personally guide you through the design process, step-by-step, from start to finish. We look forward to working with you to make your unique vision a reality. We can literally begin with your conceptual sketch on a napkin and refine the design to a beautiful fine piece of jewelry that you will cherish.

 

Ring Sizing

A ring which is properly adjusted to the size of your finger should feel a little bit tight. It should slide easily onto your finger and come off a bit harder with a slight brush against your skin. When resized properly, the ring will maintain its original round shape (in most instances) and no stones will be damaged. When making a ring smaller, a portion of the band will be cut out and cut ends rejoined with precious metal solder, such as gold or platinum. After restoring circular shape, the jeweler solders the ring back together, cleans it, and polishes it to restore the smooth surface. If you find you need to enlarge your ring, it may be stretched (as long as there are no stones) or cut and enlarged with additional pieces soldered into the gap. There are some rings that cannot be resized due to their material properties. If your ring is made of titanium, tungsten or cobalt, and was purchased at Golden Classics, the manufacturer of the ring usually allows you to trade the ring in for a different size for a minimal fee.

Prong Rebuilding & Re-Tipping
