Our jewelry gifts truly tell a story that needs to be preserved and passed along to the next generation of our families. At Brad’s Designs & Jewelry, our team understands the importance of these stories, and our team helps keep them going to be shared for years to come and passed down throughout the years. By maintaining, cleaning and fixing your bracelets, earrings, rings and necklaces, you can ensure that your loved ones will be able to wear them with pride. Our crew is proud to have the opportunity to work with our community members in the Chicagoland and Northwest Indiana region to create their dream pieces of jewelry for more than 30 years.
Wearing your favorite jewelry every day can take a toll on these pieces. Your rings can get abused by being exposed to elements, handwashing and just time. Part of our repair services and offerings includes fixing, securing and retipping prongs. The prongs are tiny but mighty as they are in charge of keeping your diamonds and jewels in place. They can get worn down and we can make sure that they are good to go, so that you do not lose a stone!! Additional jewelry repair services include replacing broken clasps, soldering chains or other pieces, replacing lost jewels, repairing watches and resizing rings.
Even if you do not have any noticeable issues and do not think you need any repairs, you should have our professional experts clean and inspect your most treasured jewelry pieces. This allows us the opportunity to take a close look and make sure that there are not any emerging issues. Cleaning your jewelry keeps it sparkling and shiny and looking brand new. We can go over any at-home maintenance tips for your particular piece of jewelry as well.
If you are ready to start from scratch on a customized ring or more, we can take you through the design process step by step. Our team begins the jewelry journey by having a conversation with you on why you want to create this special gift. We feel that by understanding your why, we can really be inspired and bring out the best possible piece. We will sketch out your design and you will be able to pass along any of your own sketches or photos that you have in mind to help guide the process. The next step is a wax carving of your jewelry to help really bring our vision to life. We will cast it next in the metal or metals of your choice. We perform the fabrication step by hand and also set your stone or stones of choice by hand to ensure our level of craftsmanship.
