"I shipped my 1920s diamond ring that was missing a stone across the country to Fox Fine Jewelry after seeing their incredible repair and restoration work on antiques. Customer service start to finish was absolute perfection. They seriously went above and beyond to restore my piece and it looks better than ever. Thank you team Fox!"

Metals We Work With

Many vintage pieces are made in platinum. Platinum repairs require specialized equipment and training, and years of practice. We’re platinum experts and have been working in platinum since 1990. We also repair gold and sterling silver jewelry. 

If your antique jewelry is sterling silver or costume, we recommend repairing it when the sentimental value is very high. This is because the cost of the repair typically exceeds the intrinsic value of the jewelry.

Replicating Antique Jewelry

Sometimes a piece of jewelry is so worn that the base simply won’t support the additional metal. It’s like adding additional stories on a building without an adequate foundation. In those cases, we recommend that we recreate your ring, using your diamonds and gemstones.

Repurposing Antique Jewelry

You may have antique jewelry, but you don’t love the style or wear it often. Rather than restoring the piece, you may want to use the diamonds and gemstones to create jewelry that you’ll wear and love. Learn about Fox Fine Jewelry’s custom design process.
