Jewelry Repair and Restoration Services
Call (630) 969-9600
Did the diamond head fall out of your wedding ring? Did your gold chain’s lobster clasp snap? You may be concerned: Will my ring look like new? Will my chain lose its value?
Don’t worry. At Americash Jewelry & Coin Buyers in Westmont, we don’t simply buy jewelry from folks in Downers Grove and Elmhurst—we repair jewelry, too. Actually, we take pride in our knack for watch and jewelry repair. What’s best? Our services are diverse, running the gamut from resetting diamond rings to tightening stones.
Learn the basics of repair and restoration, and then contact us for quick and thorough service.
Should I Repair My Jewelry Myself?
The short answer is no. It may be tempting to use your pliers to jump together your necklace’s rings, or to use your hammer and mandrel to bend your misshapen ring back into place. However, polishing, repairing, or restoring jewelry is not and should not be a do-it-yourself (DIY) project.
Why? For two main reasons.
For one, your bracelet or diamond ring is an expensive investment. To repair your item of jewelry yourself is to risk lowering the price of your investment. After all, a broken bracelet is hardly a bracelet at all, and a cracked diamond is less valuable than a diamond whose chips have been recut or reconfigured by an expert.
Second, you risk decreasing the sentimental value of your jewelry. Let’s face it: Jewelry highlights big events in life. You may have received a three-stone ring to celebrate an engagement, or a loved one may have gifted you a brooch for your birthday. However, accidents do occur, and your memento may get damaged. Should you choose to repair your jewelry yourself, you could worsen the damage, and your ring or brooch might never sparkle in the way you best remember it.
The better alternative, then, is to take your damaged piece to an experienced professional.
Keep in mind that you don’t have to take your ring or brooch to the same store from which you bought it. That is to say, if you bought your piece of jewelry at a big-box store, you can take it to our Westmont shop for repair.

How Much Does Jewelry Repair Cost?
The cost of jewelry repair depends on the type of jewelry in need of repair, the brand of jewelry in need of repair, the parts and components needed to complete the job, and the amount of labor required to fix your jewelry.
Do your research. Ask for estimates from different repair professionals before you decide on your favorite. (If you reach out to us, we’ll provide an estimate customized to your piece of jewelry, your budget, and your needs.)
