Jewelry Repair and Restoration

When it comes to jewelry repair, we specialize in repairing those family heirlooms that are near and dear to you.  As we all know everything breaks, but that doesn’t mean your heart has too!

We at Designs by CC also size rings, solder your broken chains, and can re-tip the worn prongs on your engagement ring.  We work in sterling silver, gold and platinum.

We also can restring that broken or stretched strand of pearls.
