The Design Center
The Jewelry Source has a highly knowledgeable design staff that can assist you with a hand-sketch rendering or a CAD design. Our state of the art “design center” features computer-aided design (CAD) programs to help you create your one of a kind jewelry design. With our computer-aided CounterSketch program, you can preview your piece before we start building it exactly as you imagine it.
From the design to the finished product of your custom piece, you will be part of the experience of making your dream piece turn into a reality. We begin by carving a wax model where we capture the smallest details of the design. After casting, setting and finishing, your idea is completed to a beautiful piece of finished jewelry to last a lifetime.
The Jewelry has four graduate gemologists on staff trained by the Gemological Institute of America. We provide insurance evaluation information, diamond grading and gemstone identification. We use a gemological microscope, a symmetryscope/performance scope, polariscope, refractometer, dicroscope, specific gravity liquids, and ultraviolet lamps. We also have a master set of diamonds that have been color graded against the master set for color comparison.
The Jewelry Source is pleased to provide fine quality jewelry repairs all done on site. Our shop houses two excellent craftsman who are skilled and experienced and can problem solve to help assist you with your needs. Whether it is the simple repair of a chain or the complex jewelry repair of a treasured antique, our shop is capable of providing quality service.
We are pleased to announce the addition of the Crafford Laserstar laserwelder. This state of the art equipment will allow The Jewelry Source to provide services in repair that were not previously possible. Our trained craftsman can use this tool to repair most metals in a manner that more traditional methods do not allow.
We have the capacity to custom design. Based on a rendering or existing design, our expert wax carver will hand craft from a block of wax your special piece. Once that is approved, we than cast clean and polish the item in the metal of your choice. We than hand set any stones and finish the piece to showcase quality. We can produce for you a new piece of jewelry using your diamonds and colored stones that you might have just lying around. Or we can execute a one of a kind jewelry item that might include one of the unique colored stones or diamonds that we offer.
We offer the service of hand engraving as well as machine engraving. Hand engraving is truly a lost art. Hand engraving gives us the ability to engrave jewelry items that have an unusual shape or needs a specific custom design or message.
We offer pearl and bead stringing. This is done by hand, individually knotting between each pearl using a silk thread and keeping the pearls in the exact order in which they were matched. We also provide clasp replacements if it necessary, or can make styling suggestions to enhance the finished look of your necklace.
We offer the services of a wish list for our customers. This allows you to shop and select items of your liking. Your loved ones and friends can shop from that list ensuring the gift you receive is exactly what you want.
Our gift wrap is special. Every gift box that leaves our store is wrapped to perfection using no tape and each package has a unique frou-frou top that says this gift is from The Jewelry Source.
We provide movement repairs for most watch brands as well as stem, crown, crystal, pin and watch band replacements. Some cell services are done while you wait, as well as most band adjustments.
Our complete services are warranted for one year, parts excluded.
