We do offer servicing and repair of most watches however we do not replace batteries or resize watch bands. For those tasks we would refer you to AL Jacobs & Sons, Ipanema Watch & Jewelry Repair, Golden Seashell or Dario Jewelers. You can find their information here.
That is correct. We have been very fortunate to be part of such a wonderful community for so many years. However, in order to change our style of business we decided a smaller and quieter location was necessary.
The only way we can correctly identify the value and quality of jewelry is by seeing the piece in person. In this case we recommend scheduling a jewelry evaluation appointment with us. If you prefer to have just the one piece appraised then we would recommend contacting Thom Underwood with San Diego Gem Lab at 619-286-6614.
We work with a lot of clients in this position. Most of them design a new custom made mounting to their taste centered around the family stone. This is a great way to incorporate family traditions with your own personal style.
When clients honestly have no clue what their significant other might want we usually recommend purchasing a stone and setting it in a classic solitaire. This way the proposal can be a true surprise but the recipient still gets to play a role in their ring design. For clients that purchase the stone and simple mounting from us we offer full credit of the solitaire towards a custom designed ring.
Offering this kind of service is difficult because of all the tools and materials needed to properly evaluate jewelry. If the whole family wants to join in on the appointment here at our studio we can of course make that work. Just let us know when scheduling your appointment.
