A Full Service Extensive On-site Shop
Laser Welding and CAD Design
At Jeffrey Scott Fine Jewelry, we strive to be on the cutting edge of jewelry manufacture, instead of only repairing or crafting jewelry the old fashioned way with a torch, we have custom on site laser welding. With the laser welder, as the company says, "the only limit to fine jewelry fabrication is your imagination." Laser welding as opposed to soldering is a much cleaner way of crafting or repairing, gold, silver and platinum, leaving no seams. And without heat delicate precious stones are not at risk as they would be with a torch. Even your broken glasses can be fixed with a laser. When you are making a custom piece of jewelry from a photo or your imagination, the old fashioned way, is to have a model maker carve you a wax, and then if it is not to your liking or must be modified, often a new wax must be made, or the original modified, which is very labor intensive and carries with it a greater price tag. With the custom on site CAD design, you can change your design multiple times before the wax is finally created, allowing you the customer to see the proposed design before casting, and at a much lower cost to you.
On site repairs
At Jeffrey Scott we offer on site repair work, either by laser or by traditional torch - goldsmithing, silversmithing, stone repair, resetting, you name it. No job is too great or small. Jeff does the work on Wednesdays, when we are closed so he will not be disturbed. So drop off your work by Tuesday at the close of business, on most jobs, have it back on Thursday, unless it is more involved, it may take a bit longer. In some instances he may be able to offer you while you wait service for certain types or repairs by laser. But we are a "mom and pop" operation - you deal with the owners at all times, so certain jobs, if more involved requiring Jeff's undivided attention, without interruption. will require that he works on it when we are closed to the public. If you are concerned about leaving your stones, don't be - we have been around for several decades with an impeccable reputation. It is a shame that a few bad apples have given rise to suspicion which causes the bulk of jewelers out there who operate honestly to have to reassure customers. Irene is an attorney and has the highest standards. As she says, how can these unscrupulous types lay their heads on their pillows at night and live with themselves, when switching people's stones?
Peace of Mind
When we take in your stones, to reassure you, we put them under a microscope. We then plot any inclusions and take the dimensions of your stone in millimeters and give you a copy of this information as well to take with you. No two diamonds or precious colored stones have the exact same dimensions or inclusions, these are the fingerprints of your stone. We keep one for ourselves as well. When you return to pick up your item, we put it under the microscope and show you the inclusions, and remeasure the stone in front of you, so you know you are getting your same stone back. This method protects us and protects you as well, and gives everyone peace of mind.
Computerized Engraving, Plating and Appraisal Services
At Jeffrey Scott we do custom on site computerized engraving, and can engrave most items of jewelry and even can engrave images, logos, plates etc. If your piece requires hand engraving, we have a hand engraver with over fifty years experience at our disposal. We do on site gold and rhodium plating as well.
