Chain and Clasp Repairs
It happens all the time and is a very common repair we are able to assist with, bracelet or necklace repairs to chains. Completed by our in-house team of expertly trained bench jewelers, our jewelry chain repair service comprises careful metal soldering that reconnects chain links of all kinds back together for a seamless restoration. Another common issue we see is a broken clasp or closure. Because this part of jewelry typically sees the most use, clasps tend to be more susceptible to breaking. This doesn't mean the end of your favorite necklace or bracelet, we have multiple options and are grateful for the opportunity to assist with your jewelry repairs on items purchased online, at any Lee Michaels Fine Jewelry store, or elsewhere.
