Palo Alto Jewelry Watch Repair


 

Goldsmiths have been applying their skill and art to making exquisite adornment for thousands of years. While some techniques have changed over the centuries, their passion for making something beautiful has not.

We work with some of the most skilled goldsmiths to be found anywhere. Combining old world talent with new age technology, whether using cad cam to design to your exact specifications, or using laser welders to repair a family heirloom, from hand pulling platinum wire to use in a repair or design, as well as using the time-honored skills of hand setting your precious gems, we do it all.
