What you can do to safeguard your jewelry from loss or damage.

It breaks our hearts when someone comes to us after a loss or theft and it's too late to do anything. Here are two ways you can protect your precious jewelry:

First, bring your jewelry to us once a year for refinishing so we can repair damage from daily wear and prevent the loss of diamonds and gems. During a refinish we clean your jewelry, and check and tighten all stones. If there are issues, like cracks or prongs that need work, we can find them during the check before they cause further problems.

Second, have your jewelry appraised - photos and detailed documentation will help when dealing with your insurance company in the event of a loss or theft. Check with your home owners or renters insurance agent now (before a loss) to find out how your policy covers jewelry. Our expert jewelers can appraise your jewelry here in our studio.
