Watch & Repair Service
We know that when it comes to your jewelry repair and watch repair that it’s not just a lump of gold with a precious stone. Your jewelry is a part of you because it has a story behind it. At the very least, it contains sentimental value that runs deeper than its sale price. At Gittelson Jewelers, we have been re-setting diamonds, applying 1/2 shanks and polishing gold, silver and platinum for over 30 years. That’s how we know that repairing these items means so much more than simply adding sparkle and shine. There’s nothing quite like rekindling the wedding proposal, grandpa’s old watch gift, or that graduation present from your parents – all over again.
Watch Battery Replacement
Often times, you watch battery dies at the most inopportune moment. If this happens to you, or you have that rare collectible watch laying around in need of a battery, Gittelson Jewelers can replace the battery in almost any watch in a very short period of time.
Jewelry & Ring Sizing
Gold, silver and platinum pieces can be re-sized by goldsmiths. Humidity, in this midwestern climate, often can change the way you wear your jewelry over time. Whether this is a brand new purchase or a fine piece of jewelry you’ve had for a year, Gittelson Jewelers can help you out.
Crown Repair & Re-Tipping
Your wear your rings every day – especially wedding rings. Engagement rings can begin to wear down over time and become exposed to structural weakness. Re-tipping enforces the ring’s structure. Repairing the crown will ensure diamonds and gems won’t come loose.
Necklaces don’t have to be too long or too short. If your silk is worn or you’d like to change the length of your necklace, Gittelson Jewelers can help with re-stringing pearls and other beaded jewelry.

Jewelry & Watch Engraving
Gittelson Jewelers works with local engravers to add that custom touch to your gift or personal sentiment. Engraving adds that extra little something, to which your gift will be unique and one-of-a-kind. Gittelson jewelers can engrave most watches, bracelets, and rings.
Watch crystals are built to endure your lifestyle, but they can be prone to scratching or breakage through extended wear. Like a ding on your car door, we can buff out minor scratches or in the event of extensive damage, we can replace the crystal for you.
Bracelet & Chain Repair
Chains and bracelets get tangled up, twisted or even broken during normal wear or through improper storage (tossing it in your drawer). Gittelson Jewelers can repair or replace broken pieces and clasps on all of your fine jewelry.
You might have heirloom jewelry in your intimate collection of fine jewelry. Heirloom pieces can see a lot of wear and will often require pieces to be replaced or even some areas to be restored. We love to help you with your vintage jewelry.
Re-clasping Necklaces & Bracelets
