Restoration

Restoration of your antique jewelry is the preservation of your family’s heritage. Your family jewels have been passed down through generations of love and hard times as each jewel carries with it the stories that formed what has become your family today. Grandma’s diamond engagement ring or great-grandma’s antique brooch were given to them by your forefathers to ensure the prosperity of you and your family and to celebrate the love that once was. Now it’s your turn to preserve what has been treasured for decades.

But there are questions to be asked. What is needed to restore my jewelry? Will it be restored properly? How can I trust such precious family heirlooms to a jeweler I’ve never met?

Jewelry restoration requires several technical steps in order to bring each piece as close as possible to its original condition.
