If you are looking for something unique that you haven’t been able to find, let me help you make it. In the past several years working retail I’ve noticed that 60-70% of my clients have ended up choosing to create their own piece, after browsing inventory and not finding exactly what they wanted. Perhaps it’s the top of one ring, the side of another and a different shape center diamond, or a wedding band that incorporates diamonds from your family. Aside from Bridal Jewelry, we can turn your old jewelry or inherited pieces into a new treasure that suits your personal style. Sound complicated? It’s not. We’ll work together to determine your style, fit a budget, and create exactly what you want! Let me be the expert and walk you thru this journey to create your own unique keepsake.
Every item you purchase from The Diamond Curio includes a complimentary written jewelry appraisal. You should provide this to your insurance agent to protect your jewelry in the event that it is lost, damaged or stolen. An appraisal includes a detailed description of the item, the quality of the stones and the replacement value.
I also provide appraisal services to evaluate, document and provide monetary value for any of the current jewelry you own. If you have an existing appraisal the fee for this is reduced. Many insurance companies require that you get your appraisals updated every five years. I can help you keep all your documents current and your investments protected.
Every year I travel nearly 10,000 miles to hand select diamonds in Antwerp, Belgium for my customers. With this elite service, I become your personal shopper, cutting out the middleman and saving YOU money in the process. With my connections overseas, I’m able to get the best selection of diamonds in the world…any shape, any size, any budget. These diamonds can be laser inscribed to commemorate the experience. Antwerp, Belgium is known as the “Diamond Capital of the World”, where 60-80% of the world’s diamonds are cut and traded.
Jewelry, like cars requires maintenance. Wear and tear is normal so you should have your jewelry cleaned and checked on a regular basis to ensure your prongs are wearing evenly, your stones are tight and that nothing has been chipped or cracked in the setting. I offer full jewelry repair services including but not limited to sizing, stone setting, soldering, new crowns and prongs, full or half shanks, clasp replacement, jump rings, and replacement of diamonds or gemstones.
When you choose the path of custom jewelry design, you can trade or sell your old settings for gold value. Don’t forget about those lonely half pairs of earrings laying in your jewelry box, kinked or broken necklaces and broken clasps. These all add up to cash in your pocket or credit toward your new purchase.
