Yes. If the earrings can be converted, it will be noted in the listing and listed in both the clip and pierced earring categories.
Can you repair or recondition antique and vintage costume jewelry that I own?
You can call, email, or text. In most cases, YES I do custom cleaning, metal and enamel restoration, rhinestone replacement, gold fluxing, findings repair or replacement, and in some cases, bead replacement and bead repair. 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.
