Carreras Jewelers is holding its annual jewelry repair event from July 16-31. Save 20% on jewelry repair (excluding watches), pearl restringing, insurance appraisals, and custom jewelry design work.
Jewelry Repair work includes:
Re-size, clean and polish rings
Re-set, tighten or replace stones
Refurbish mountings, re-tip and replace prongs
Shorten or lengthen chains
Have you been procrastinating getting that necklace restrung? It’s recommended that you restring a pearl necklace regularly, as the string can become worn out and break easily. Pearls that are worn often should be restrung yearly, and pearls that are worn only on special occasions should be restrung every two to three years.
Other pearl jewelry work includes:
Tighten and strengthen your old or damaged strand of pearls
Restyle and update your design
Restring your colorful beads and dye the silk to blend with your beads
Are you looking to create a piece of custom jewelry? Our team will work with you and redesign a current piece or build a new piece from scratch. We can even design jewelry to match a current piece in your collection, and during the sale, the work is being offered at a 20% discount.
Update your Jewelry Insurance Appraisals at a 20% discount during the sale (up to 10 items). You will need to call and make an appointment with Tami Toms, our Certified Gemologist and Certified Gemologist Appraiser. By choosing an AGS-certified Appraiser, you can rest assured that you’re working with a professional who has been trained and certified. Our appraiser will thoroughly inspect your jewelry and get you a value that is as accurate as possible. We recommend getting your jewelry appraised by us every three to five years to update your insurance policy so you will be covered in the case of loss, or to get a measurement on your investment.
