Repair & Restoration Services

If you have broken a chain, lost a stone, bent a prong, or simply need your jewelry cleaned, bring it to Ramsey’s. We have a full-service jeweler’s workshop located in our store where our experienced jewelers will repair your broken or damaged pieces. We work with most common jewelry metals and can perform almost any repair needed.

We are one of the only jewelry service centers in Louisiana with a laser welding machine. A laser welder is the only machine that can repair eyeglasses. It can join mixed alloys without solder for a flawless result, making it the best choice for precise welding.

Our experienced jewelry team will repair your jewelry on site and will record all of your jewelry's distinguishing characteristics so that you can rest assured that your jewelry is safe in our store. We will take great care getting your piece back to you on time. When you trust Ramsey's with your personal jewelry, we take care of it as if it were our own.

We understand that repair and rejuvenation of your treasured jewelry is not one-size-fits-all, and we work closely with you to give you the outcome that you desire.

Here's what our clients have to say abour our repair services:

My husband had my diamonds replaced in my heirloom ring from his mother at Ramsey's as a Christmas gift. The workersman ship was beautiful. My ring is stunning again. It was a huge surprise. Ramsey's completed the job before the scheduled date and made sure it was completed for Christmas. Thank you Sara for your assistance in helping my husband with replacing 5 broken diamonds making my ring beautiful once again. I LOVE it and my wonderful husband. - Sherry F.

My beautiful wedding set was purchased at a national retailer. After sending off with said retailer THREE times for repairs, I didn't want to trust them with my jewelry ever again. I emailed Ramsey's in Metairie to see if they'd service pieces not bought there. Very quickly, I got a response from Kristi. She assured me that my ring could be helped. Upon arrival, I felt welcomed, and Kristi acted as if she were my personal jeweler. We looked at my ring under a microscope and discovered that it needed more than 1 fix. Again, I was assured my ring would get repaired and look better than the day it was placed on my finger. Well, today I got my ring back and it shines like the Hope Diamond! The repair is undetectable and the spa treatment did wonders. I am forever grateful for Kristi and the team at Ramsey's for helping me get my beloved ring in perfect shape. I will be back next time I need something sparkly! - Adrienne L.

I've always had a great experience with Ramsey's. I recently had my wedding set (purchased from Ramsey's in 2013) sized down, and it was completed in one week. My wedding set looks brand new! I refer all of my friends and family to them for their excellent craftsmanship. - Melody B.

Very thankful for Ramsey’s! My wedding band was bought from this store, and I love it! Unfortunately, I had a terrible accident with a dog that caused my doctor to have to cut my wedding band and engagement ring off due to needing surgery. I took both of my rings to Ramsey’s to be repaired. They fixed them quickly while gaving me amazing customer service. So happy to have my rings back! They look amazing! - Jessica P.

I went into Ramsey's because my wedding rings needed a stone replaced & the prongs re-tipped --- it's not easy to leave your most precious piece of jewelry with someone, but I felt completely comfortable with Ramsey's after spending time in the showroom and seeing how very nice & professional everything is and chatting with the staff and experiencing how very nice, courteous, and professional they all are. Mr. Darius Branch did a perfect job seeing to the repair of my rings. I would absolutely tell anyone to go to Ramsey's for any new jewelry purchase or any repair/resize service you may need! - Stephanie W.
