Jewelry and Watch Repair in the St. Petersburg, FL Area
Tidy Up Your Jewels
Well-loved jewelry often needs a deep yet gentle cleaning to get the dust of use out of the cracks to make it shine like new again. Depending on the piece, most jewelry can use a polish every one to three years. Rings with heavy use and durable stones, such as diamond engagement rings or wedding bands, may need to be cleaned every six months to a year. Earrings are likely to get spritzed and sprayed accidentally with hairspray or perfume that will build up surface residue and bacteria should be brought in yearly depending on use. Consider setting a standing appointment to clean your jewelry annually; the upkeep will be worth the rewards when you jewelry still looks good as new fifty years later.
Always Be On Time
Watch repair at Diamonds Direct includes so much more than simply changing batteries: we also work on cleaning, polishing, and resetting your watches. We work on all high-end brands, whether or not you purchased your watch from us. If you need your watch resized to fit your wrist, we are always able to add or remove links. Wearing an improperly sized watch attracts a greater risk of damage because it is not snugly on your wrist and therefore more likely to be dented or scratched. To keep your watch running smoothly and looking smooth for years to come, bring it in for our watch servicing and battery replacement service.
Polishing and Refinishing Services
Necklaces, rings, earrings, and bracelets are worn frequently in close contact with skin and receive accidental bumps and grazes that dull the shiny finish. Antiques with a patina may look dirty instead of old from years of accumulation. Sterling silver tarnishes easily. But your fine jewelry can be made to look like new again with a simple polishing. We'll buff out scratches, clean out crevices, and give your gold, silver, diamond, and gemstone jewelry the new life it deserves with our refinishing services. Whether your fine jewelry lost its shine from years of use or decades of disuse, we can bring back the shine in your metals and gemstones to look like you bought it just yesterday.
A (New) String of Pearls
Even the most beautiful string of pearls will need to be restrung from time to time - as the necklace is worn, the pearls work with gravity to stretch the cord. When you start to see the unknotted string in your pearls, it's time to bring it in to be restrung. Pearls are strung on thin silk cord that breaks easily after a year or more of use. If you wear your pearls often, they should be restrung yearly; with less frequent wear they can last up to three years before the silk string starts to discolor and weaken. Prevent any unfortunate loss of pearls by being proactive in your jewelry care and set a yearly appointment with your jeweler to take care of your pearls and all your fine jewelry.
