A good name is rather to be chosen than great riches, and loving favor rather than gold or silver.

-Proverbs 22:1

Jewelometry Services

I strive to perform high-quality repairs of all kinds in a timely manner at your greatest convenience, whether you come to me or I come to where you are.

I prefer to perform the most thorough and complete repairs on every piece, however if your  budget does not allow you to authorize all that's needed, I'd be glad to repair your items in stages, and I will never try to sell you work that is not required.

I am highly experienced in most repairs, but if I do come across anything I can't fix, I'll point you to the one who can.
