We used my grandmother’s ring as an engagement ring and it needed a significant amount of work. We first took it to:

Leo Carroll Jewelers
1348 Cambridge St

Cambridge
, MA 02139
(617) 864-2090

I HIGHLY recommend them. They are so nice, knowledgeable and easy to work with. That said, they were concerned that the type of work needed on my ring was too complicated for them and referred us to another jeweler, Harry Gigian of Gigian Jewelers in Downtown Crossing. He was also wonderful to work with, but does not typically work with consumers, mostly serves direct to jewelers. Not sure if you can walk-in or not, but I’d highly recommend Leo Carroll and if they can’t handle it, they’ll be honest about it.

Hope this helps.

We got my antique ring from Colonial Trading Co. downtown (102 Tremont St). The ring is from the 1940s and needed to be sized when I bought it. They have a jewelry repair guy right next door (or below them?) where they send everything to be worked on. He sized my ring within the hour. I went back a couple months later to have the prongs tightened on the center stone, and they did a great job, again within an hour. I’m not sure if they work on jewelry that’s not bought from them, but it would be worth giving them a call. They definitely know how to work with antique jewelry.

We also went to Leo Carroll to first look at rings and they are super nice. When we visited, there were a couple customers picking up repaired or newly set jewelry and they were all really happy with the work from what I could tell.
