Which are Jobs Like: Ring Sizings, Stone Tightenings, Rebuilding Prongs, Solderings and the such. Plus, when you’re Dealing with Gemstones and Diamonds, Utmost Care is Needed so you don’t Damage or Crack your Expensive Stones!
You could also Pick up a Jeweler’s Kit that includes a Mallet, Mandrel, Pliers and Tons of other Useful Tools.
A Rouge Polishing Cloth will Help you Remove Surface Scratches and Dullness from Pretty much any Kind of Metal. You will be able to add a High Polished Glow to your Gold with just a Slight Pressure as you Polish. Just realize that Rouge is a Polishing Compound that Jewelers use and it will Leave Black Residue on your Rings, Fingers and Clothing. Polishing your items (especially with a Tarnish Remover) will Remove Tarnish from Gold or Silver (As other Types of Metals don’t Tarnish). But if the items get Tarnished too Badly, or Discolored, you’ll need a Professional Jeweler to Buff if out and get in all the Nooks and Crannies.
You don’t need a Top of the Line Commercial Cleaner, you just need an Ultrasonic Cleaner that Breaks up Dirt Particles.
Heat Helps, but it’s Not Necessary if you use Hot Water and my Special Homemade Cleaning Solution! If the Diamonds and Gemstones are Stubborn and have a Thick Layer of Dirt Caked Underneath them, you may need to invest in a Good Jewelry Steam Cleaner as well. After all, you wouldn’t Wear your Clothes for 7 Days Straight… So Give your Jewelry a Break! You can easily change your own Watch Battery at home, if you have the Proper Tools and Equipment.
To Change your Battery, you simply Pop the Back off your Watch with either a Watch Case Opener, a Watch Wrench, or some Jeweler’s Screw Drivers. Just be careful to Align the Watch Stem with the groove in the Case Back so you don’t Snap your Stem off! And if the Back won’t just snap on with a Little Pressure from your Fingers and Hands, you may need a Watch Case Sealer!
A Watch Case Sealer is a Special Tool that allows you to Press all the Pieces back together again. A Small Screwdriver, or a Watch Link Remover is needed if you Want to Add Links or Remove Links from your Watch. Watch Links will normally be put together with 2 Different Types of Fasteners: Pins & Screws!
Pins are a little bit more Tricky since you’ll need a Watch Pin Remover to Push the Pins out. This takes a Little Practice, and a lot of Patience so you don’t Break the Pusher, or Bend the Watch Pin. I’ve been doing Watch Links for over 23 Years, and every now and then I still Break the Tool. But, if you Line up the Tool Properly, and the Pin Pushes through the Hole Perfectly Straight, you should have No Problems. Once the Pins and Links are Removed, you’ll need to gently take away or add what you need, and then put the Watch back together again by Pounding the Pin Back into Place.
But, if it Saves you $25 from going to the Jeweler, then it’s Well Worth the Price to Pay. With a Little Luck and a Little Wiggling, you should be able to Loosen the Knot enough to Untie the Chain.
Herringbone Chains are Thin and Flat, with Tiny Sections and Small Pieces that Weave in and out of each other. Then gently, Oh So Gently, Rotate the Sections around, Snapping them Back into Place one Link at a time.
Rotate the Links, Moving them Slightly Up and Down and Side to Side as the Links Maneuver Back into Place.


What you can do is to Lay the Herringbone Flat on a Cloth with another Cloth above it, and then Gently Roll the Bumpy Section Flat Again with a Pen, Pole, or any other Round Tubular Object. It will always be a Little Loose there and it will probably Kink Easier in that Spot again.
Your Goal is to Join the Ends together by Turning one hand Clockwise and the other hand Counter Clockwise. You don’t want to Leave any Slight Gaps in the ring, for the Chain may Slide through.
If the link gets too Deformed or Looks Bad, simply Remove that Link and Reconnect the Rest of the Chain. Unhook the Broken Clasp by using the Pliers to open the Ring just Large Enough to Slide the Clasp Free.
Now Purchase a New Clasp either at your Local Hobby Store (like Michaels), or order them online at Amazon. There are Two Main Types of Clasps on the Market: Spring Ring Clasps, and Lobster Claw Clasps. Just note that unless you have that Jump Ring Soldered Closed, it could Open up and Pull Free again!
I usually Recommend having Jump Rings Soldered so you don’t take the Chance of Losing your Valuable Pendant! Depending on the Type of Crystal that you have on your Watch, you may be able to Remove Scratches from it. They Sell Watch Crystal Polishing Cloths specifically made to Rub Scratches out of Crystals!
Grab an Exacto Knife or some Similar Sharp Item, and Gently Break the Old Glue off the Bottom of the Pearl. Don’t put too much, because you don’t want the Glue to Push out the Seams and Cover your Beautiful Jewelry! Keep it there until the Glue Hardens or Dries Enough so the Pearl doesn’t Rise off the Post. Keep in mind, Pearls are Organic and if you get them Wet, they will Expand and can Come Loose. You can Straighten out a Post in the Blink of an Eye, as long as you don’t Snap the Post off in the Process.
Gold and Silver is Pretty Malleable and with Steady, Delicate Pressure you should be able to Maneuver the Post into an Upright Position Again. You may have to Readjust the Pliers, Direction and Position, but it’s not that Difficult. Chances are, if the Post isn’t too Damaged or Cracked, you will be able to make the Post Straight. Granted, it may not be PERFECTLY Straight, it may still be a Little Crooked, but it still should do the Trick and allow you to Wear your Jewelry again!
This Repair Works Best on Plain Gold Bands or Etched Wedding Rings, or where the Bend is only at the Bottom of your Ring (the Shank). Just don’t Hit it too Hard in any Spot as you don’t want to Leave Dents or Flat Edges! Once you get it as Round as you can, Polish it up with either a Polishing Cloth or a Buffing Wheel. 12 Easy Home Jewelry Repairs that takes Minutes to do, and are Way Cheaper than what a Jewelry Store will Charge you.
When your Backs are Loose, Slide off Too Easily, or just Don’t Hold Very Securely… Get Some New Ones!
Amazon carries a Wide Assortment of Earring Backs, from Heavy Backs, Medium Backs, and Plastic Backs that Hold your Earring to your Ear so they Don’t Droop Down. You can get an Assortment Set with Different Colors and Different Lengths for a Pretty Cheap Price! I HAVE A PAIR OF OVAL HOOPS AND THE WIRE THAT GOES ACROSS TO FASTEN THE EARRING IS LOST AND I HAVE NOT SEEN A SITE THAT SELLS THAT LITTLE STRAIGHT OR CURVED WIRE.


You know, those Gold and Diamond things you put in your Ears that you Forget about for 8 Months? I can’t tell you how many times a Customer will take off their Earrings and hand them to me with Big, Chunks of Earring Goop, Gunk, Whatever you want to call it, Stuck to the Ends of the Posts!
Some Earrings get so Bad that the little Holes in the Earring Backs get Filled up with Junk as well. I know, I know, that’s the whole reason you’re here in the Jewelry Store, to get them Cleaned!
Earrings get Hair Sprays and Perfumes on them, Soaps and Shampoo, it’s a natural part of Life. Take some Jewelry Cleaner Solution (or a little Ammonia and Warm Water) and an old Tooth Brush and Gently Dab at them. Keeping your Earrings Clean not only makes your Diamonds look Brand New again and Sparkle like the day you bought them, but it also Keeps your Posts from Tarnishing, Staining, turning Dark or Black and getting Brittle or Weak!

Heading to the zoo or swimming with dolphins for the day is pretty much a guaranteed good time.
When I’d go to sleep and lay my head upon the pillow, the earring post would stab me in the head. But I do make sure to clean my diamond at least once a week, just to keep it sparkling like crazy. Granted, you may need to Purchase a Few Tools for the Job, but the Good Thing is, once you have these Tools, you can use them over and over again, Saving you Big Bucks! Polish the Surfaces Good, and then use the Outer Cloth to Fine Tune it and Remove the Polish Marks. You’ll need to Clean the Jewelry after you Polish it to Remove that Reside from Underneath the Stones and in between the Cracks.
Cleaning your Items often will keep the Lotions, Soaps, Perfumes, Hair Spray, and Shampoo from Building up and Blocking Light. Every Watch is Different, and sometimes the Cheaper the Watch gets, the more Difficult the Links are to Remove. Put the new Clasp on facing the same way as the old one did (So you can Hook the Chain properly), and Tighten the Ring back up again. Just follow the instructions that come with the Cloth, and your Crystal will be Scratch Free!
Then use a Toothpick or some Similar Item to Dab some Glue back into the Pearl Hole and around the Base.
You want to Gently Bend the Post Back into Position again, Smoothly, Gracefully, and using a Slight Bit of Force. Slide it down and Apply Delicate Force to Push it Down to Help Round the Ring out Slightly. Do a Couple of Strikes, and then Remove the Ring from the Stick, and put it back on Facing the other Way.
Just Shaping your Ring could Create Enough Force and Pressure to Snap the Stones or Crush the Diamonds!
Anything that is Dangerous or Requires Special Talent or Technical Ability is Best Left for the Professionals.
