Inspection & Cleaning
Inspection and Cleaning
Having your jewelry inspected regularly may seem inconvenient. But it’s is a lot less inconvenient than bearing the loss of a precious piece.
At Baxter’s, checking and cleaning your jewelry is always free
Everyday wear and activity can take its toll on your jewelry. Regular inspections and cleanings help to protect it from loss while keeping it shining bright and beautiful.
We’ll check the settings to determine if the prongs need rebuilding or the stones need tightening.
For rings, we’ll also evaluate the foundation for wear and thinning and, if necessary, recommend replacement or repair (which, of course, we can also take care of in-house.)
If you have a cherished necklace or bracelet, we can check the clasp as well as diamond or gemstone mountings.
Then we’ll give your piece a proper cleaning. First, we’ll gently buff it on a polishing machine to bring the shine back to the material. Then put it in an ultrasonic machine to remove any dirt or grime that might be on or in the piece, Finally, we’ll finish it with a hot steam before we dry it and return it to you. It only takes about 10 minutes and we’ll do it while you wait.
