How We Do It
Our service technicians will thoroughly inspect your jewelry while documenting characteristics for identification purposes. We’ll take a photograph of your item(s) and save it in our computer for permanent proof of what you’ve left us to give you peace of mind. Your piece is placed in a secure envelope with a uniquely numbered, computer generated repair ticket, and then stored safely in our vaults. Your item will not leave our workshop and all work is performed at our secure location.
Next, our jeweler will give your jewelry a cleaning and inspection to provide a final evaluation of the work to be performed. If anything was missed by the service technician, our jewelers will bring this to your attention. All work is done under 30x’s magnification to ensure the most precise result. Additionally, we may use laser welders for any soldering or jewelry fabrication.
Same-Day Ring Sizing & Jewelry Repair
If you’re in need of a super-fast ring sizing or jewelry repair, then look no further. Our on-site jewelers can size your ring the day you bring it in. You won’t experience long waits and you can be comfortable knowing that nothing is “sent out”. Your jewelry never leaves our workshop and we’ll make you a top-priority while getting your ring re-sizing or jewelry repair completed quickly.
With over 75 years of combined experience, all work is performed to the highest quality standards. No appointment is needed, bring your item in before 1pm Monday thru Friday and we’ll complete the work by the end of business that day.
On-Site Jewelry Workshop
Most jewelry stores in Buffalo do not have an in-house workshop and must send your work to contract jewelry repair shops. You may never know who is truly working on your items, this is NOT the case at Andrews Jewelers.
Our jewelry repair shop is located on-site at our Williamsville location and is equipped with all the finest tools and equipment. We’ve placed our workshop in the center of the showroom, so you can see the work being performed.
If your ring is too large or too small, don’t worry we can size all jewelry you bring us. Our jewelers will measure your finger to determine the proper fit, we’ll then upsize or down size the ring using the appropriate precious metal. We work with platinum, palladium, white gold, yellow gold, rose gold, and sterling silver. As part of the service we provide, we’ll carefully check all your gemstones and diamonds to ensure that nothing is loose. If we find something in need of tightening, we’ll do so at no extra cost. Your ring is meticulously refinished and brought back to like-new condition, finally Andrews Jewelers will professionally clean your gemstones and diamonds to make them shine again.
If you need same-day-sizing, that's fine with us....we can do that. Please bring your ring to our store before 2pm Monday through Friday, we'll then quickly determine if it can be sized that same-day and what the charge will be. Note - we can't quote prices for ring sizing without seeing the ring in-person, there are many factors that affect the final price.
Re-Finishing & Rhodium Plating
White gold has been popular for many years now, unfortunately it begins to yellow after 6-12 months of active wear. Andrews Jewelers will re-finish, remove all scratches, check & tighten diamonds, and then re-plate your ring to bring it back to it's original pure white luster. Watch the video below and you’ll see our jeweler polishing a ring to be rhodium plated.
