Custom Design
Can't find the perfect piece of jewelry you're looking for?  Let us
help you custom design it!  We will work with your ideas, photos,
and drawings to craft the unique piece you've been dreaming of.  
After all, shouldn't your jewelry be as unique as you are?
The repairs listed here are just some of the common ones we do on a regular
basis. We don't list prices for individual repairs here because prices will vary
depending on the size, type, and material of each individual jewelry piece. You
will find our repair prices are lower than most jewelers. This is because other
repair shops are often full of expensive machines such as laser welders and
cad/cam milling machines. The combined costs of these machines can be
upwards of $100,000!  That cost is passed right on to their customers.  At Van
Guilder's, we use old world European techniques that jewelers have been using
for hundreds of years. We can do nearly all of the repairs the high price shops
can do with one big difference;
lower prices.
