Bridal Registry / Wish Lists
We do offer bridal registry to new brides and a wish list for all customers wishing to register for that special gift that you would like others to know you have an eye on, or to just remind yourself.
We will assist you through the design process to ensure the durability of the design as well as the beauty.
We recommend every 6 months you should bring to us your diamond jewelry and have our jeweler inspect the prongs to help prevent any possible damage or loss of your gemstones. This inspection service is FREE.
We will gladly engrave and personalize any jewelry piece you wish, done by our in-store engraver, either by machine or by hand.
We can repair rings, earrings, pendants, chains, and pins. Setting of stones in their original setting or a new style can be done on the premises.
If the item in your jewelry box has gone out of style, or you simply would like to try something new, bring it to us and we can restyle to the exact specifications you wish.
Pearl and Bead Restringing
We do custom stringing for your necklaces or bracelets and will always clean your jewelry before restringing. It can be done in a number of different styles and we will go over which you might prefer before we begin.
Watch battery replacement and repairs are done on the premises. Watch repair estimates are free.
