Restyling *by appointment*: Create something new from your inherited or out-of-date fine jewelry. Bring in the jewelry you just can’t make yourself let go of; you know it has value, both sentimental and monetary. Let Marc help you design a piece of jewelry you will want to wear using pieces of your treasured family heirlooms, and get value from your scrap metal (including old chains, single earrings, broken items) at the same time.
Fine repair: When you have jewelry repairs that no other jeweler will touch, including resetting or replacing missing or broken valuable gemstones; platinum work; inlay repair; and adjusting vintage pieces or fine hand-crafted jewelry that require an artist’s touch, allow Marc to evaluate what needs to happen to refurbish your treasured items. We will be happy to take on the most challenging projects, and refer you to trusted colleagues for minor repairs. We also provide stringing services for beads and pearls.
Appraisals *by appointment*: We work with a trusted, highly qualified Graduate Gemologist to provide official appraisals for insurance and estate purposes. We can also offer a limited “retail replacement value” letter for any jewelry made by Marc Howard or for your property based on your older appraisal documents, accepted by most insurers. Sometimes you just need a practiced eye to take a few minutes to look at what you have and give you a verbal estimate of its value; we can do that too.
