Earrings come in many shapes and sizes - there are post style earrings with threaded or friction backs - there are lever backs and omega backs, french hooks and many more.
Earrings are gorgeous additions to any person's jewelry collection.
Repairing earrings require the right parts and a delicate finesse. Since posts and wires are used to attach earrings to a person's ear, they need to be thin and at the same time strong so that they do not fall out or break easily.
What kind of repairs does Connellys Diamond Gallery do for earrings?
Bracelets are beautiful pieces of jewelry with a lot of moving elements. Links of bracelets constantly flow and rotate which can cause wear over time. There are several ways which designers create bracelets to have different "joints" or sections where the links are combined as well as different clasping mechanisms.
Many bracelets also have gemstones or diamonds set in them which need to be secured and checked every so often. Making sure that prongs are sturdy and healthy ensure the longevity of your precious bracelets.
A skilled jeweler must know how to properly address and fix each kind of link whether it be a bar and rivet or any other variety of connection such as bangle bracelets.
Reasons why Connellys Diamond Gallery should do your bracelet repairs:
