St. Louis Jewelry Repair
We’re the jewelry store other jewelry stores don’t want you to know about.
Neustaedter’s Fine Jewelry offers the very best fine jewelry repair in the St. Louis area. In addition to our regular customers, Neustaedter’s performs jewelry repair services for jewelry stores all over the St. Louis area. Our owner, Richard Neustaedter often jokes…
“We’re the jewelry store other jewelry stores don’t want you to know about.”
Just like a fine automobile, fine jewelry also needs regular care and maintenance. That’s why we recommend having your jewelry checked at least once per year, more frequently if it’s jewelry you wear every day.
Worn or damaged prongs can lead to the heartbreaking loss of a gem. A loose diamond can, over time, cut through the prongs and fall out of the setting. A dirty or weak clasp may cause you to lose an entire necklace or pendant.
Feel free to contact us with any questions about caring for your fine jewelry, or stop by our store at Big Bend and Dougherty Ferry Rd. in St. Louis, Mo.
