But, before that, let’s take a closer look at the repair services you can get done at Galloway & Moseley and answer some of the most common questions about jewelry repair and maintenance.
First and foremost, take good care of your jewelry
You wear your favorite jewelry pieces all the time, so some wear and tear is always expected. But, it’s extremely important to always take proper care of your jewelry, take your most-worn pieces to get regular cleanings, and have occasional jewelry inspections to prevent damage before it happens.
Always keep your jewelry clean, neat, and organized, and be on the lookout for any signs that may indicate your favorite pieces are in danger of damage or breakage. But, if any of your pieces are already showing signs of damage, there’s no need to despair! Bring your jewelry to our experts, and they’ll have it looking spotless in no time.

Jewelry repairs can range from simple to complex, but the good news is that our repair staff is able to repair anything. Whether you need a new clasp on a bracelet, a ring sized, or a diamond set, we do it best. Among the jewelry repair services we offer, here are some of the most common issues we see every day.

Does resizing a ring damage it?
Whether you have a ring that’s too loose or too tight, it can easily be sized to fit your finger like a glove. And you don’t have to worry about it damaging your precious ring.
Luckily, our knowledgeable goldsmiths can impeccably and seamlessly resize your ring in a way that’s completely harmless to your beloved piece. When it’s done, your ring will look good as new, and it’ll fit you perfectly!
Can a jeweler fix a cut ring?
Yes, absolutely. Although the precious metals used in jewelry are quite hard to break, we know that occasional fractures may happen over time, especially to a piece you wear every day, such as your wedding band.
Fortunately, fixing a broken shank is quite easy, and the process isn’t that different from resizing a ring. All we have to do is solder a little piece of metal to the broken part of the band, and then polish your ring for a flawless finish. The finished look is so impeccable that you’ll never be able to tell the shank was ever broken.
How long does jewelry repair take?
We can’t give you a definitive answer to this question because it depends on what you’re having repaired and the complexity of the work required. Jewelry cleaning and polishing can be done immediately, while elaborate repairs take much longer because they require meticulous work
On average, though, you can expect a turn-around time to range between a couple of hours to a couple of weeks. But, no matter how long it takes to repair your beloved pieces, keep in mind that having your jewelry looking flawless requires great attention to detail and outstanding craftsmanship, so those hours of undivided care from an expert jeweler are always a good thing.
Can watches be repaired?
Absolutely! After all, if you want your watches to last a lifetime, you need to take them to a professional from time to time, to have them maintained and, if needed, repaired.
We are able to fix every brand, regardless of age, and can fix most pocket watches too. Whether you need a whole mechanical overhaul or just a new battery, our experts can restore your timepiece back to its original glory.
And, if all you need is a quick battery change or a band adjustment, we can get that done in no time while you wait.
