A good jewelry repair shop?

ring in palmDan asks via Twitter:

Can anyone personally recommend a good place to get jewelry repair done around?

We followed up with Dan and he's looking to get a gold chain repaired.

Got a suggestion? Please share! And, as always with these sorts of questions, non-redeemable bonus points for a sentence or two about why you're suggesting that place.

The Jewelry Repair Center in Castleton - friendly people & they've done good work for me: http://jewelrepaircentercastletonny.com/

I don't know about chains, but I do know that Finkle Jewelers on Central Ave. in Albany does great ring re-sizing and watch repairs. They might be able to repair your chain, too. I am not affiliated with Finkle Jewelers; I am recommending their services as a customer who has had numerous rings resized there, and they come back looking like they were made in that size in the first place. The workmanship has been impeccable. They also repaired a watch for me that had no monetary -- but great sentimental -- value.

I second Jewelry Repair Center in Castleton. It's between exits 10 and 11 on I-90. The people there are awesome!

i second finkle jewelers. i used to live nearby and took a necklace to repair. they were able to fix it in one day, and didn't charge me anything. great customer service, guaranteeing a repeat customer. it's rare.

We've also had great service from Jewelry Repair Center, but I'd note that although the mailing address is Castleton, it's up in Schodack, considerably closer to Albany than that.

JK Bloom Jewelers on 3rd St in Troy are exceptional. They are family owned, very reasonible, and have absolutely no attitude as I've found at many other local, larger jewelry shops. They hand craft much of what's in the store and do excellent repairs, all on site.

We have purchased or had repairs done to numerous pieces from them and have always been very satisfied with the quality of their work. Anyone we've recommended them to has also had great experiences.

I second JK Bloom in Troy. I had a pin custom made for my wedding and have since been loyal to them. I am very petite and like to have an inch or two taken off of necklaces. Great prices and service!

I'd highly recommend john fritze who is across from Delaware plaza near del lanes. He repaired an antique filigree ring for me and did a fantastic job. He also does repairs for various jewelry shops in the area.
