We are known for tackling the most diverse jewellery requests, try us.
Alterations: Alterations and transformations are a great way to update jewellery that you haven’t worn in years. We love bringing old jewellery back to life. Have you collected all of your lost earrings, hoping that a match might show up one day? And they didn’t. Let us turn them into a charm bracelet…full of memories. We will work on your existing jewellery and alter it to suit you better.
Appraisals: Do you have a special piece of jewellery that you don’t know the value of? What is it made of? We can have the piece appraised for you. The cost is $75.00.
Acquisitions: Working with our extensive network of partners, colleagues and contacts developed over the past 54 years, we are able to locate specific brands, designers and jewels at your request. Please give us as much information and detail as possible. We are experts in locating unusual or hard to find timepieces. Please fill out the information in our contact form in as much detail as possible, or drop in and see us, and we will get back to you as soon as we can with what we can acquire.
Engraving: Engraving is a lovely way to make a piece of jewellery extra special. There are a variety of ways to achieve the “engraved” look. It can be done using the traditional method of hand engraving. However, there is also machine engraving and laser engraving.
Each results in a slightly different look and feel. The content that you provide will often dictate which method will be best to use. Pricing is dependent on the size, intricacy and scope of the project, and we will provide an estimate beforehand.
Props and film: Are you costume designer working in the film or fashion industry? Our jewellers are available to help you with your special requests. We specialize in costume jewellery, prop jewellery, duplicates and imitations. We are available to meet your unreasonable deadlines. Tell us your goals and design limitations and we will find a solution for you.
Repairs: We offer cleaning and checking the condition of your jewellery, soldering, gluing, replacing lost stones, restringing, plating, re-shanking and sizing of rings, stonecutting and polishing, and claw retipping.
Reproductions: Have you lost a special piece of jewellery? We can reproduce it for you. We can make a reproduction from a photograph, or make a mold from an existing piece of jewellery based on your needs. Please keep in mind that it is very likely that you will spend more money on the reproduction than you spent on the original piece.
Ear piercing: Michael will pierce your ears as a walk-in or you can make an appointment. If you have your heart set on having your ears pierced on certain day or time, it is best to make an appointment.
Ring removal: Michael will gently remove that ring you cannot get off. The process is very gentle and only takes a few minutes. Once the ring is off we can repair and size the ring properly for you.

Our services include: Automatic Movement Services, Bands and Straps, Battery Replacement. Crystal Replacement, Overhaul, Quartz Conversion, Restoration. Seals / Gaskets, Crown and Tune Ups. No problem is too big or too small. Fast turn around time. Batteries cost roughly $12.00 but it is by estimate depending on the type of watch you have.
