Rubini Service Center
Most repairs and creations are done on the premises. We are happy to work with gold, silver, platinum, alternative metals, costume jewelry, pearls, beads, and random odds and ends.
Ring Sizing- We re-size rings both up and down in a variety of metals: gold (all karats and colors), silver, platinum, palladium, titanium (limited range), stainless steel (limited range), brass. Sizing costs are $30 and up. (Resizing down, thin band, no stones, no pattern, is $30 in gold, for example. Wider bands, with different stones, with pattern, up or down, incur higher charges, as does quicker than normal turn around.)
Stone Setting- We can match and replace stones if need be and securely place them in any style of setting. We can also repolish select types of worn stones, or facet completely uncut raw minerals.
Miscellaneous Jewelry Repair- Soldering, plating, adjusting, tightening, gluing, polishing, prong repair... You name it, we can do it.
Restringing- We restring pearls and beads on a variety of strings including nylon, silk, plastic, wire... with knots or without. We are also able to help reconfigure the pattern and layout of beads that have fallen and scattered. Restringing cost $18 (for a bracelet, average bead size, no knots) and up.
Watch Repair- We replace the batteries of both quartz and solar watches/clocks as well as adjust/replace watch straps, normally while you wait. We also repair/clean movements or replace them if need be.
