Jewelry Repair
we have an on-site jeweler at our Stanford Shopping Center location who can do a wide range of repairs on jewelry of all kinds. These include ring sizing, gemstone setting, reinforcement of prongs and mountings, repairing breaks in chains and bracelets, refinishing jewelry items, soldering charms, restringing pearls and beads and other repairs.

If you insure any of your jewelry, you know that you need to have it appraised for replacement value. We have provided appraisal services for insurance, estate settlement, or resale value for many years. More information on our appraisal services.

Custom Design
We work with custom designers who can interpret your own ideas for creating a unique item, whether using gems you already have or creating something from imagination. More information.

AGS Accredited Gem Laboratories
Precious gemstones are examined and evaluated by our professionals.

Watchmaker and Watch Repair
Watches, like your automobile, periodically need servicing. After several years, the lubricants dry up and create excessive wear on the movement. We service and repair many different kinds of watches, using either our onsite repair expert or our experienced trade shops. We also replace batteries for many different kinds of watches, often while you wait. More watch repair information.

Diamond and Gem Polishing and Re-cutting
If you have a gemstone which is chipped or damaged, often this can be re-cut or polished to bring back its full beauty. We work with skilled and reliable lapidaries to provide this service. Often this kind of repair is covered by your insurance policy.
