While we make resolutions to get healthier, become more financially responsible, or spend more time with friends and family, January is also a great time to go through your jewelry box.
What needs to be repaired? What can be re-purposed? Does a piece need to be enlarged? Over the course of this month, we’ll give you some ideas for those heirloom pieces that reside in a drawer or jewelry box.
WHAT’S THE STORY BEHIND THAT POCKET WATCH?
At Haltom’s, we have master jewelers who can help you open and identify the pocket watch maker as well as serial numbers to approximate the date of production.
Many customers are surprised to find personal engraving inside the caseback that they never knew was there. We have seen a grandfather’s name and business engraved on a pocket watch, creating that moment of “This is a keeper!”
Pocket watch chains, antique watches and charms can all be re-purposed as a one of a kind necklace – a truly fabulous and unique look that everyone will comment on.
In some cases, we see older, heirloom pieces that are damaged or neglected beyond repair, and we can suggest storage solutions for you.
If you’re in need of a simple cleaning or watch battery, we can take care of that at no charge. If you would like to restore, repair or repurpose a cherished item, please stop by and let us take a look at it.
