We offer a free inspection, some find this to be a “gimmicky” offer and wonder what the catch is? Well there really is no catch it is pretty straight forward. We find that about 1 in 3 pieces of jewelry that we inspect will have a problem that needs fixed. We are hoping by offering a free inspection that you will discover the problem while it is still minor and let us fix it for you.
What kind of things can we discover early? Well broken and worn prongs on diamonds and other stones tend to be the most common fixes we discover. This is a result of wear and sometimes caused by snagged clothing like gloves. This is a fix that can save you many thousands of dollars as it can keep you from loosing the stone. Often the prongs are so small that you will not be able to see the wear without a magnifying lens. Even then it can be hard to tell a prong that is fully present and bearing down on a stone versus one that is “sprung” and loosely hold a stone.
Another potential problem we can help with is “out of round”. rings will become misshapen over time from normal wear and tear. Our equipment and specialized tools allow us to “true” your ring to its like new shape. This combined with a cleaning can be enough to make your ring like new!
While we don’t charge for the inspection and basic cleaning of your jewelry we do have some fees for other services. You are never obligated just because we inspected your jewelry and found a problem. You can take advantage of our cleaning and inspection and choose not to do a repair with us. We are hoping by pointing out potential problems early we can help save you money before a missing diamond costs you thousands of dollars not to mention the sentimental value.
