It is difficult to give you an exact cost for repair until I see photos of the jewelry to determine if the necessary items are in stock or need to be ordered. We can give a basic estimate if you email good, large, clear photos of the jewelry repairs needed. Most repairs typically take 1-2 weeks.

Please email about your needs prior to shipping any jewelry for repair. I do not offer repair services near or around holidays such as Valentines Day, Mothers Day, Christmas, or New Years.
