5 Reasons You Should Get Your Jewellery Repaired

5 Reasons You Should Get Your Jewellery Repaired
Do you have a prized piece of jewellery that’s broken or in poor condition? If so, it’s probably sitting somewhere in a box, away from your sight. Or, maybe you are considering selling your broken pieces to a place that refine metals for some cash. Instead of forgetting about your sentimental possession or only getting a little return on the sale, let us save your jewellery. Our team can repair it or add to it with our professional repair service. Check out these five reasons why you should get your jewellery repaired.  

Jewellery Symbolizes Memorable Times In Our Life

A wedding ring, anniversary necklace, or birthday bracelet all mark important dates in our lives, so it makes sense that we’d like to keep these around for as long as we can. And precious heirlooms should also be passed down, not worn down. So if you have a piece of jewellery that once was a precious gift, inheritance or something you’d like to pass down to your kids one day, we can help restore it to its original condition even if it’s broken or in rough shape.  

Diamonds and Gems Can Easily Pop Out

It happens to the best of us, even if we take proper care of our jewellery, over time the diamonds and stones can become loose, pop out, and even break. Fortunately, you can get this replaced so that your jewellery piece looks as new as the day you got it. At Joy Creations, we specialize in a variety of settings such as gypsy, claw, bezel beads, pave and channel. And if the tip of your setting has been worn down, we also offer re-tipping services to help restore and secure any loose stones before they fall out.  

Our Sizing Can Change Over Time

Our body shape can change over our lifetime. If you have a favourite ring or bracelet that you received as a child that you’d like to wear now, or if you own a piece of jewellery that no longer fits, we can help to resize it for a perfect fit. At Joy Creations, we can increase or decrease the size of your item and set your gemstones to match appropriately.  

Accidents Happen

We’ve all experienced some form of accident that left a favourite necklace or bracelet damaged. Even if it looks beyond repair, our in-house team can likely fix it for you. We can repair chains, refinish jewels, solder breaks, replace claps and links, and also restring pearls and other beaded jewellery. There’s no repair too big or too small for our team!  

Life Also Happens

Jewellery wasn’t meant to last forever – but it can! If you wear your jewellery often, it's bound to get scratches and scuff marks from everyday wear and tear. We can help restore, refinish, and polish any jewellery that has started to look worse for wear. And if you have certain metals that keep tarnishing, we also offer yellow gold plating and rhodium plating to prevent tarnishing from happening to your favourite pieces ever again.   If your treasured jewellery piece is damaged, doesn’t fit right or is starting to wear, our team at Joy Creations Jewellers & Designers are here to fix it.  We have decades of experience repairing jewellery, and we have an on-site factory with a trained goldsmith who can assist you with all your needs. Our company offers the best prices for online jewellery repair and would be happy to supply you with a quote. Just come on in and meet us for a free consultation.

Starts With a Consultation

  Our custom jewellery design services start with a complimentary consultation with our on-site designer. We’ll discuss your ideas, figure out what materials to use, and then we’ll start to turn your vision into reality.  

CAD Design Software and 3D Printing

  Once we have an idea of what you would like us to create, we’ll use our CAD design and specialty software to create a rendering of your design for you to preview. This is where we can let your creativity run wild, and make as many changes as needed until you are satisfied. Once it’s approved, we’ll then produce a prototype for you with our 3D printer.  

Highest Quality Materials

  We only use the highest quality materials for our custom-made jewellery. Our diamonds and semi-precious gemstones come from reputable suppliers right here in Canada. And because we alloy our own metal in store, we can alter the materials to achieve different shades. Even if you have your mind set on a particular diamond that’s sold at another dealer, we will ensure that you understand the diamond grading system and help you make a well-informed decision before purchasing online.  

Remakes and Remodels

  Looking to remake a design you saw from existing materials? Do you have a worn down or broken piece of jewellery you would like to remodel or modernize? We can help with that too! Our team will find a solution, test and measure all the materials and stones, and work with you to create the perfect piece.  

Matching Pieces

  If you’re on the hunt for a customized piece that will make someone you love feel special, allow us to help. We can create matching pieces for you and your loved one and even replicate designs into different pieces, like a custom necklace and matching bracelet right here in our studio.

We are fully transparent with our pricing, as we believe that our customers have the right to know how things are made. And because we make our jewellery right in-house, we can offer exceptional rates to our customers.
