(Jewelry and Watch Repair as a Less Obvious Gift Choice)

Sometimes roses and chocolate are right on the money. Sometimes we like to think that people are more complicated than they are. The traditional dinner and surprise, the bouquet, the gift cards, they exist are stereotypes for a reason. They get the job done.

But in this day and age originality gets you a lot of points. Instead of having another carbon copy Valentine’s Day, maybe it’s time to mix it up.

But What About Jewelry Repair by Mail?

This Valentine’s Day My Jewelry Repair would like to encourage our customers and our readership to think outside of the box on this one. If your significant other has a brooch that’s seen better days, a necklace in need of repair, or a timepiece in need of a complete overhaul, we can get the job done. Best of all, you don’t even have to leave your home.

Valentine’s Day by the Numbers

Statistic Brain asserts that our average annual V-day spending reaches $13,290,000,000. Yeah, that’s a lot of coin. But how does the spending break down? Where’s all that sweet, sweet Valentine’s Day money going?

Greeting cards top the charts, raking in 52.1% of the action, followed closely by candy (you know, the chocolates and the colorful hearts) at 47.5%, then flowers at 34.3%. The average number of roses that are produced for Valentine’s Day reaches upwards of 198 million! Jewelry makes up 17.3% of Valentine’s Day purchases. Jewelry repair makes up a portion of that percentage.

Whether it’s Vintage Jewelry Restoration or Refurbishment, Think Twice Before Buying New

Fixing jewelry in need of repair is still a growing industry as more and more people look to save money by refurbishing or repairing their existing jewelry and watches. If you have that special someone who has a piece of jewelry or a watch in need of repair or routine maintenance, then send it on over to My Jewelry Repair.

You could even be real sly about it and send your repair in without your significant other knowing. It’ll be a nice surprise. We have an easy online, mail-in process. Select your repair, print your packing materials, and send your repair to either our East coast or West Coast locations.

My Jewelry Repair provides watch and jewelry repair nation wide, eliminating the hassle and limitations of going through a local shop.

While florists' hands start to cramp up and suffer from thorn pricks, as boxes of signature chocolates come flying off the shelves and into shopping carts, as pink, white, and red teddies sit strapped in passenger seats of cars during lunch breaks, it’s important to look for less obvious ways to make your statement of love this Valentine’s Day. It’s closer than you think and the time to act is now. Instead of getting flowers or thoughtlessly buying a gift certificate to the massage parlor or a day at the spa, think about making a bolder statement.

Are You Planning an Engagement Soon?

Why not make it on Valentine’s Day? It’s not like you have to celebrate your engagement every year, so it’d be different than getting married on Valentine’s Day -- which, hey, that’s not such a bad idea, either. It’s an economical choice for couples just starting to build their life together. Plan a gondola ride or a nature hike and profess your love to that special someone. It will make this Valentine’s Day that much more special. In fact, it’s sure to be the best ever. If you plan on making the engagement real, My Jewelry Repair offers ring sizing services, including ring sizing beads, spring shanks, arthritic, half, and full shanks. Whether the engagement ring is brand new, or if it’s a family heirloom, our master jewelers can handle the job.

Heart Shaped Diamond

Heart-shaped diamonds are among the hardest to shape, requiring the most dexterously skilled cutters, so much so that the ideal is to achieve a unique 59-faceted cut. They are among the most popular in engagement and promise rings, resembling a pear-shaped cut, but actually closer to a modified round brilliant cut. They’ve been around for centuries, and they’ve stayed relevant.

The best stones to make a heart-shaped diamond out of are stones that go from narrow to fat, in case you ever plan on fashioning one yourself. We’re sure there’s a DIY video on it somewhere. If DIY isn’t your thing, leave it to the professionals.

A Heart-Shaped History

Heart-shaped diamonds have been around since before 1463, at which time the first one ever was requested/recorded on paper, addressed in a letter to Nicodemo from the Duke of Milan, Galeazzo Sforza — a famous name from a famous family of the Italian Renaissance, patrons of master artists like Leonardo Da Vinci. The fact that the heart-shaped diamond is mentioned casually might lead a reader to deduce that these were fairly common.

From that point forward, heart-shaped diamonds continued to stay in the headlines with Mary Queen of Scots bestowing one upon Elizabeth I in a stone gold ring.

How Heart-Shaped Diamonds Get their Signature Shine

Heart-shaped diamonds are intelligently designed to shine. With a cone at their base, light can come streaming in like your favorite Netflix show that you shamelessly binged last weekend, filtered through gem facets. The best type of stone to use is the macle stone, which are twin crystals, particularly useful for fancy cuts, like modified brilliants. Fancy-cut crystals are highly recognizable by their brilliance, their ability to shine.

Heart-Shaped Diamond Ring Settings

Heart shaped diamonds are still popular today, many times housed in rings, enjoyed by the likes of Lady Gaga and Joan Collins. There are three optimum ring settings for heart-shaped diamonds:

  • Bezel — This is the most secure setting, wrapping itself completely around the stone.
  • Three-Pronged — Maximize your diamond’s qualities with this setting, which allows more light to filter through the stone itself.
  • Five-Prong — This setting is better for larger stones. Giving your loved one a big ol’ rock? Five-pronged is the way to go.

My Jewelry Repair Helps Your Love Shine Brighter

If your heart-shaped stone is anything less than 100%, send it to My Jewelry Repair today. If you act now, we can get your ring repaired, your stones replaced and looking brand new before Valentine’s Day. Visit MyJewelryRepair.com today to get your repair started with our online mail-in service.

This Week’s Service: A Tungsten Ring Repair

On this edition of the Weekly Before & After, we have a Tungsten and 14k Gold Ring that had the gold accent band fall off. Tungsten can be a tricky metal to work with for most Jewelers, but MyJewelryRepair.com employs Master Jewelers that can go above and beyond for any ring repair.

For this ring we had to reattach the 14k gold band by adding additional gold to the ring. We then performed our signature clean and polish to finish the process and made this ring look like new.
