  2. Caveat Emptor - Be aware of terms of your warranty

    Warranty Woes and the Value of On-Site Repairs

    Chalk this one up to the “It would be funny if it wasn’t so sad” category. We recently had a customer visit the shop to get some repairs done on a piece of jewelry she had purchased at a certain big box store that shall remain nameless. This is a fairly regular occurrence at our shop for two main reasons: We are known locally for having one of the largest and most well-equipped jewelry repair facility in Sacramento, CA. We have invested thousands of dollars in high-end equipment like our laser welder, so that we can do complicated repairs in-house. And, we have a team of highly experienced and skilled jewelers. Many big-box and chain jewelers outsource their repairs. This... read more »

  8. Ancient Roman jewelry

    Ancient Roman Jewelry Discovered

    Archeologists have discovered one of the finest collections of Roman jewelry ever found in Britain. Dubbed the Fenwick Treasure, the fine gold and silver jewelry was found under a department store in the historic town of Colchester. This unique discovery gives us a glimpse into a historic and troubled time. It is believed that the treasure was buried in the floor of a house for safe keeping on the eve of the Boudiccan Revolt in AD 61. The owner likely knew that a large army was marching towards her town and that they were practically defenseless. Hoping to preserve her jewelry in the slim hope that she could somehow escape or survive the onslaught to later reclaim it, she buried... read more »
