Quality Jewelry Repair: What You Should Know

Quality Jewelry Repair: What You Should Know

When it comes to jewelry repair, we all want the best care and service for our treasured pieces. From engagement rings to clasp replacements, finding a jeweler with the proper knowledge and skill is vital. Locating a trustworthy jeweler doesn’t need to be a daunting task, as long as you arm yourself with the right questions before handing over your items. Some of the most important questions you can ask each jeweler are:

  1. Will my jewelry be sent out for repairs?
  2. Are your jewelers and technicians qualified to handle my repairs?
  3. How can you guarantee my exact stones will be returned to me?

Will You Perform My Repairs In-Store?

It's important to know that many jewelers send out repairs instead of offering in-store services. Off-site repairs may account for additional wait time, as well as repair price increases.

Is the Jeweler or Technician Bench Certified?

Before you hand over your engagement ring or Rolex, it’s wise to ask if certifications are held by those performing your jewelry repairs. National standards are in place so you can feel confident about who you entrust with your fine jewelry. If a Bench Professional Certification Program nationally recognizes their jewelers, your jewelry is in good hands.  

Can You Ensure My Stones Will Be the Same When I Pick Up My Repair?

Don’t be afraid to voice concerns over the authenticity of your jewelry. A reputable jeweler will want you to feel confident entrusting them with your engagement ring. Request to examine your stone’s defining characteristics under their microscope. You’ll find that a trustworthy jeweler will help you identify these characteristics both before and after your jewelry repairs.
