From simple fixes to complex and intricate restorations, Hands Jewelers can mend your broken jewelry and bring new life to old or antique jewelry and heirlooms. As customers browse the store upstairs, Dan Brown, Hands’ trusted jeweler for 25 years and one of the finest and most creative jewelers in the state, works downstairs creating custom pieces and repairing precious jewelry and possessions. Even crystal and fine china and minor clock and furniture repair.

Few repairs are turned away. We’ve soldered broken links on necklace chains, welded cracked eyeglass frames, and replated damaged silver on an antique compact. Hands can also help with more common repairs, including ring sizing, prong replacement, gemstone tightening, and jewelry refinishing. Our repairs are completed in house, most in less than one week, and delivered with the friendly service and honesty you expect from Hands.
