Here is a complete list of Services Wilson’s Jewelers can provide for you.
WE BUY GOLD AND SILVER
Clean and Check all Jewelry: Always clean and check all jewelry for no charge.
Custom Design: Where most chain jewelry stores offer their customers the same jewelry options, we can help you build a piece unique only to you. We can either start completely fresh or by using your old jewelry. Your options are endless.
Solder breaks: We use high grade solder to join metals together, then clean it down to where the solder is invisible.
sizing up – We cut the ring and open it up to proper size, match the metal, use an oversize piece of metal and solder it in with high grade solder. Carve the oversized piece down to the dimensions the ring was originally. Clean it up to where the work done is invisible.
sizing down – We cut out a piece of the shank to make the ring the proper size. Solder the metals back together and clean up.
Rebuilding worn prongs: Process called re-tipping. Mix gold and solder to match the metal, apply it to worn prong to build it up to slightly larger than what is needed. Clean down to proper size and polish. This procedure can be done while stones are in as long as they can take heat.
The other step would be to replace the entire prong. Prong is cut down to the base where the stone sits, then solder on either square or round wire to make an entire new prong. A new seat will be cut for the stone to sit and reset. Cleaned up and polished.
STONES THAT TAKE HEAT
– Rubies, Sapphires, and Diamonds
– All other stones must be removed and reset
Setting Stones: A seat must be cut for the stone to sit on. Substantial prongs will be carefully laid down over the stone.
Watch Repair: In house we replace batteries, gaskets, pins, remove watch links, and clean bands. We can also remove moisture from watch crystals. For watch repair we have an excellent watch repair man that we have been doing business with for over 30 years. He stands behind his work with a one year guarantee. NOT DONE ON PREMISE. All watches are insured and hand delivered the entire time we are in possession of it.
Estate and Consignment Jewelry: Offer customers to put their jewelry on consignment. We suggest pricing it a half of retail. We also do evaluations of Estate Jewelry.
Restringing: We can restring costume necklaces and bracelets, as well as pearls.
Certified Written Appraisals: A written document stating the approximate value it would take to replace a piece of jewelry. It includes a brief description of the piece of jewelry including the cut, clarity, color, and carat weight of a diamond or the millimeter dimensions of a gemstone.
