RESTYLING OLD JEWELRY
In need of a jewelry makeover? We work with you to restyle outdated, rarely worn, or damaged jewelry. Stop in and we will discuss options.
The first step of the custom design process is to meet with our clients. We listen very carefully to their ideas and desires. We combine those with our 35 years of creative experience to create a hand rendered, actual size drawing
of the piece on translucent vellum. This allows the client to “try it on”.
If you like the rendering, you’ll love the piece!
Once approved, the piece goes into production in our studio. Custom designs are generally completed in 3-6 weeks, depending on complexity. We also offer CAD-CAM design services.
Free Design Consultations and Estimates are available. Appointments are recommended.
We are able to restore antique and damaged jewelry with our state-of-the-art microscopic laser welder, allowing us to make virtually invisible repairs without the use of solders. This maintains the integrity of your pieces, restoring them to their former beauty. For both gold and platinum, Deep River Jewelry Design has the experience to recondition even the most difficult pieces. We have the capability to fabricate missing or worn elements, as well as hand engraving to match the original details of the design.
Russell is also an expert with matching a new custom design to accompany your existing piece. We can skillfully match an antique heirloom engagement ring with a new custom wedding band.
We gladly provide free estimates following a complimentary jewelry cleaning and inspection.
We offer expert jewelry repair for all types of gold and platinum jewelry. From ring sizings and re-setting diamonds and gems, to repairing breaks in earrings or gold chains, we can get your worn, broken jewelry looking new again.

Pearls are strung on silk which can weaken, stretch or discolor over time. Pearls worn regularly should be restrung once a year, while pearls worn occasionally should be restrung every 2-3 years. Deep River Jewelry Design offers expert pearl restringing to insure your pearls remain secure and safe. We thoroughly clean your pearls, restring on silk, knot between each pearl, and finish with French wire at the clasp. We are happy to inspect your pearls and advise you if your pearls are in need of restringing. Restringing is charged by the inch.
