Local jewelry stores offer much more than the sale of fine jewelry. Your jeweler's expertise in the gemological world gives them the experience to perform appraisals and valuations, watch and jewelry repairs, ring resizing, and regular cleaning and polishing. They are also your best place to seek trustworthy advice on purchases and can advise what will best suit your budget and style. The benefits of shopping at your local jewelry store go beyond the variety of services offered; when you shop locally, you positively impact your community and create a space where you and your jeweler can build a relationship built on respect and trust for years to come.
Jewelry and Estate Appraisals
Your local jewelry store can provide you with fine jewelry appraisals for insurance purposes or give you a fair market value price for estate purposes. Jewelry should be evaluated every two to three years to guarantee its true value is covered by your insurance. Otherwise, it may rise in value over 20% per year depending on the appreciation rate of diamonds, gold, and other colored gemstones, leaving your purchase underinsured. In the case of an estate settlement, knowing the fair market value of your pieces of fine jewelry is important for equitably dividing assets. Regardless of where your jewelry is from, your local jeweler can give you a certified appraisal for your use in any legal or insurance processes.
Jewelry and Watch Repair
Family heirlooms, frequently worn pieces of fine jewelry, pearl necklaces, and watches all require some form of maintenance and cleaning over the years. Professional jewelers at local jewelry stores know that years after the initial purchase, many customers will need their engagement rings resized and their gemstones buffed. Offering cleaning and repair services, such as chain repairs and re-setting services, allows local jewelers the chance to engage with their customers more frequently between purchases. From restringing services for pearl necklaces to watch repair and battery replacement, your local jewelry store is the first and only stop you’ll have to make for any cleaning, resizing, resetting, or repair work your fine jewelry may need.
A Lasting Relationship
Purchasing fine jewelry is always better when there's someone behind the counter that you can trust. Shopping at your local jewelry store gives you access to jewelers with a wealth of knowledge and a passion for serving. Forging a lasting relationship at a jewelry store in your community builds trust and helps jewelers anticipate your needs to serve you better. When you walk in the door at Studio 2015, you can count on a friendly face to help you find exactly what you’re looking for that you can come back to again and again for decades to come.
