How Long Does Jewelry Repair Take?
When a piece of your most beloved jewelry breaks, you want to have it repaired immediately. What most people don’t understand is that jewelry repair is a complex process that takes time if you want it done right.
By working with an experienced jeweler like Reis-Nichols, you can rest easy knowing your jewelry repair is in expert hands. Unlike other jewelry stores that provide a generic time frame in which your jewelry will be repaired, Reis-Nichols jewelers are candid about the process and are happy to address any questions or concerns you may have.
Jewelry Repair Process
How long it takes to repair your jewelry will depend on what you need done. If you just need a piece of jewelry cleaned or polished, it can take as little as one day. In fact, Reis-Nichols may be able to perform a standard cleaning while you wait.
If you need a ring re-sized, a broken chain soldered, or a clasp replaced, you can expect a longer turn-around time of between seven and 10 days, on average.
Beware of jewelers that claim they can repair your jewelry in just a few minutes or hours. Jewelry repair requires great attention to detail and should never be rushed.
