Helzberg Diamonds understands that your jewelry is very special to you, and you want to keep it in the best shape possible. And if something goes wrong, we know you want your jewelry repaired with care and returned as soon as possible. That's why all of our stores offer repair services, and many locations feature an on-site jeweler to take care of your repairs even faster.
Help your jewelry maintain its beautiful shine with routine jewelry inspection, maintenance and repair. With regular inspections, your jewelry will stay pristine by alerting you to potential problems that can be fixed before they turn into bigger issues. Depending on what you find, you may be able to repair the problem at home or it may be best to take it into a professional.
Inspect jewelry for damages
While it's advised to have jewelry professionally cleaned and inspected twice a year to protect against daily wear and tear, you should also regularly inspect your own jewelry between visits. This is especially true if you miss a recommended professional cleaning. When examining your jewelry, here's what you should look for:
- Loose or missing diamonds and gemstones
- Damaged or missing prongs, clasps or chains
- Visible breaks
- Uneven wear
Polish and Cleanings
Gold and diamonds can be cleaned with warm, soapy water. A jewelry brush is best, but a toothbrush will also help you clean between the settings. For tarnished sterling silver, use silver polish and a microfiber cloth. Other pieces of jewelry may need an ultrasonic jewelry cleaner.
Leave It to the Professionals
Although you might see DIY tips and tricks, it's best to leave your jewelry repairs to the professionals. Without the proper jewelry repair tools and expertise, your jewelry could be further damaged.
We offer a wide variety of repair services to keep your jewelry looking beautiful, including:

Most in-store repairs can be completed within 7 business days. Please visit your local Helzberg store to talk to an associate about your specific repair needs.

If your jewelry is damaged, you want to feel confident that the store you choose will do a quality job fixing the issues and restoring your jewelry to pristine condition. Whether your jewelry is a family heirloom, a gift from a special occasion, a piece you found while traveling or a favorite accessory, you want to make sure the store you choose is reputable and will do a good job. All of our stores offer repair services, and many locations feature an on-site jeweler to take care of your repairs even faster. But if you are unable to find a store near you, we've provided some helpful tips to help you choose the best jewelry repair store.
History and reputation
You'll want to choose an established, accredited store that is known for being reliable. Consider how long the store has been in business and the overall impression it has in the community. You can also consult the Better Business Bureau to see if there have been any major complaints against the store.
Jewelry repair reviews
Reading online reviews can help you get a better sense of a jewelry store's reputation. You can find reviews in a variety of places online. First, the store itself may have reviews built directly into the site. Social media will allow you to see the general sentiment about a company. Yelp or Google+ are also great places to get reviews.
Depending on what piece of jewelry you are fixing, you'll want to investigate what types of certification the store has. For example, a brand may have certified store repair shops that they recommend. Double check your warranty – you may be required to take your jewelry to a preferred repair shop or risk violating your warranty.
Why it's important to pick the right jewelry repair store
When you choose your jewelry repair store, consider which store will thoroughly repair your jewelry and keep it looking beautiful. You want a store that can make repairs seamlessly so you can wear your jewelry confidently again. Plus, a reliable jeweler knows how to make repairs without diminishing the value of your jewelry.
Over time, jewelry experiences daily wear and tear. Find out what you can do to help extend the life of your jewelry.
