Frequently  Asked  Questions?

At Beaudet Jewelry we love to educate our customers on exactly what and why we are making the decisions we do for their jewelry. We try to provide total transparency throughout the creation and purchasing process, so our customers leave informed and excited. 

Ring Resizing?

Can you resize this? Can you cut off my ring?

The answer is often yes, however we need to physically see the piece to give the appropriate answer. Not all jewelry is created the same way and some pieces may require different techniques than others.

Cant get the stubborn ring off? Don't worry, we haven't had to cut off any fingers yet.

Come in during our business hours to have one of our on-site jewelers create a small cut, this will spare most of your ring for when we go to resize and repair. When we cut the ring off we ask that you wait two weeks for the finger to reach its normal size so we can appropriately size your finger.

Semi-annual  Ring Service.

We recommend you get your daily-use rings serviced every 6 months. The prongs and stone should be checked for damage and fractures to improve longevity of the ring. Stop by anytime during our business hours to have your ring checked for damage and we will clean it for free!

Lost a stone? Looking to upgrade?

We pride ourselves on our knowledge and understanding of precious and semi-precious stones for jewelry and investment. Whether you are looking to upgrade to a higher-value stone in a ring you currently own, or lost a stone somewhere along the way we can't wait to help. 

Gemstones come in a large range of quality and price point; with our access to a large range of dealers we can often find the perfect fit, price, and color of stone for your piece.

Just  Jewelry?

At Beaudet Jewelry our repair shop has pretty much seen it all. 

From belt buckles, to spoons, to candle-sticks, to cake knives we have fixed.

We dabble in watches from time-to-time but usually refer newer ones back to the manufacturer.

We no longer replace watch batteries.

Most repairs are on a case-by-case basis and require a professional jewelers attention. 

Our jewelers have the right to refuse work at anytime.

 What is the return policy for Beaudet Jewelry Design?
We accept returns for store credit within the first month of purchase with no obvious wear and tear of the piece being returned. Returns are subject to scrutiny and may require a professional jewelers attention to check for defects that may be from user error.

Yes, we offer a one-year warranty on all of our jewelry. If your jewelry is found to be defective within the warranty period, we will repair or replace it free of charge. Jewelry may be subject to scrutiny by professional jeweler to check for user error. 

Jewelry Care and Guidelines:

Jewelry created with metal, gemstones, and other natural findings often require special care and attention to live their longest and strongest life! 

Our jewelry, and most professional jewelers pieces, may be expensive but that does not mean your jewelry will never require care and attention. Many long-term investments still require maintenance and attention to reach their full potential. We recommend reading up on some basic care information to insure the lifespan of your piece!

General  Guidelines

1) When to remove Jewelry:

Before swimming, bathing, hot-tubbing, sleeping, gardening, house cleaning, or any strenuous activity. Even though diamonds are harder than any other material on earth, they can still chip or fracture if hit in just the right spot. 

Chlorine in pools and many chemicals in household cleaners such as ammonia and bleach can erode the alloys in gold, making the metal brittle and damaging fragile gemstones. Brittle metal is very susceptible to fractures and snapping. 

2) Products to Avoid:

Hairspray, lotion, perfume, cosmetics, essential oils, household cleaners, peroxide, and bleach.

Spot test any jewelry cleaners to avoid overall disaster

3) Temperature and Moisture:

4) Storage:

Avoid excessive heat and sudden temperature changes. It can compromise the integrity of the metal and certain stones. 

Do not store Opals, Coral, Cameo, Ivory, Emeralds, and Pearls in dry environments such as safety deposit boxes, which are dehumidified to preserve documents. It can damage the nacre of pearls or shrink the mother of pearl core. Opals can become cracked, crazed, and fractured. Emeralds which are filled with an almost invisible oil can dry out. 

Store individual jewelry pieces in separate pouches or boxes to keep them from chipping or scratching each other. 

Wrapping in tissue will help prevent further oxidization. 

5) Caring for Pearls:

It is best to get into a routine of wiping down your pearls with a clean microfiber cloth after each wear.

Pearls should never be cleaned with an ultrasonic or steam cleaner.

If the pearls are strung make sure the silk is completely dry before wearing. 

Store your pearls separately from gems and metal jewelry to avoid scratches.

Never store pearls in a plastic bag, the plastic can emit a chemical that will damage the surface of the pearls.
