Our Services

Appraisal or gem identification

Jewelry by Andrew offers our customers written appraisals for insurance purposes as well as oral appraisals to give customers an idea of the current retail value of their pieces of jewelry. We are able, in many cases, to identify and separate natural gems from synthetic man made stones. We can name your gemstone and often tell you the source or part of the world it came from.

Bead stringing

Our staff at Jewelry by Andrew can repair broken pearls or any other bead necklaces by restringing it. Most pearl restringing is done for aesthetic reasons. With time, silk gets dark between the pearls and we can replace it with new white silk cord, giving your pearl necklace a new, fresh appearance.

Casting

Our staff at Jewelry by Andrew can convert a model of any piece of jewelry made from wax to any precious metal of your choosing. We can also make a copy of your favorite ring and cast it in a different metal.

Laser Service

Since 2010, Jewelry by Andrew offers a laser as an important tool for complicated Jewelry and watch repair services. Using the laser, we can weld steel parts of watch bands or glasses, and do welding repairs very close to heat sensitive gem stones, which is something we could not do before. Working with the laser increases the precision and strength of bonding welded parts.

Since 2010 we offer laser technology that can be applied to steel watch bands and glasses repair, in addition to working with silver, gold, and platinum.

This service involves taking the watch apart, washing off old, used, broken down oil and reassembling it with new oil and gaskets. Pressure testing is also a part of this service and it should be administrated even if you only needed a battery replacement.
