Our talented jewellers are ready to bring your pieces back to life once again. Take a look at this guide to help you find the right choice for your treasure. Dive in!

Having your jewellery repaired is it worth it

Having your jewellery repaired: is it worth it? 

For ages, jewellery has been a statement piece in our lives. No matter the occasion, there’s always a perfect piece of jewellery to make you look even more beautiful! They are also great gifts, making someone’s day very special. 

It’s normal that, with time, your jewellery might look different than what it used to when you first bought it. This is a natural occurrence and it happens due to our everyday use, contact with other substances and sweat. 

Instead of replacing it right away, the first step is to take it to an expert. They’ll tell you if the piece is worth repairing or not. During this process, it’s crucial to take it to someone you trust. Quality is an absolute must. When repaired by someone who doesn’t have the right skills, the piece might be lost forever. 
What can be fixed by jewellers?

Finding the right pair might be a little difficult, due to so many different colours and models. But, it gets easier when you have the help of an expert. That’s what we provide for you at Maison Goldberg. We’ll help you find your style with breathtaking earrings. The first step is to get to know your options, so you’ve come to the right place. Enjoy this guide!

Ring sizing

Ring sizing

Throughout our lives, we change. We change our tastes, our style and our size. Luckly, our rings can follow those changes by being resized. It’s a very simple process and you won’t even be able to tell the difference when it’s done.
First, we’ll determine your current ring size. Then, the bottom part of the shank will be cut to remove or add metal until reaching the right size. After that, the ring will be soldered together and polished, ready to be worn again!

Gemstone setting and polishing

Gemstone setting and polishing 

The setting is the part of your ring that holds the gemstone in place. Due to movements, the stone might fall out, or get damaged. The right repair service puts it back where it belongs, so you won’t lose it. You can also replace the gemstone, if you wish!

Even the most breathtaking gemstone in the world might need a good polishing every once in a while. That’s because our daily routine is so busy that we don’t even notice our jewellery getting exposed to substances and objects that might dull their luster. But, a good polishing will bring the luster and life back, and make you look even brighter!
