REPAIRS

Steve Pronko Jewelers has a full repair shop with trained, certified gemologists on site at our store. Here are a few of the most common repairs and services we provide:

  • Repairs to damaged settings
  • Cleaning and checking of prongs, stones and clasps
  • Matching and replacing lost stones
  • Ring sizing and jewelry refurbishing
  • Polishing and resurfacing scratched or worn surfaces

Why Insist on In-House Repair from Your Jeweler?

Years ago, almost every jeweler did “bench work.” Today finding a full service jewelry store with knowledgeable jewelers and designers who work in-house is rare. We are proud to carry on this tradition and frankly, customers should be very careful about buying from a store that does not offer in-house repair services with certified gemologists on staff.

Your most valuable pieces are probably the ones that hold the most sentimental value. Pieces like your engagement ring, great grandmother’s necklace or your graduation pearls. These are irreplaceable pieces of fine jewelry worn regularly for years. No one expects their car to stay beautiful for 20 years without maintenance and repair. Yet we expect this from our engagement ring or wedding band. Repair is important for keeping your jewelry looking its best, and remaining structurally sound, as prongs and clasps can fail with age.

If you are relying on a store that doesn’t have an on-site repair shop then another level of risk is introduced into every single repair situation. Why settle for this? At best, an off-site shop will be slower in providing repairs; at worst, your irreplaceable items can be lost or stolen.

APPRAISALS

Steve Pronko Jewelers offers jewelry appraisal for Dickson City, Scranton and Lackawanna County, PA. Come in and have one of our American Gem Society Certified Appraisers help you.

Why Do I Need a Jewelry Appraisal?

Jewelry is more than just beautiful; fine jewelry has monetary value that is always changing. Appraisals are important for:

  • Insurance coverage in case of loss, theft or damage
  • Valuation comparisons
  • Estate evaluations and liquidations
  • Divorce evaluations
  • Collateral

Why Use an AGS Certified Appraiser?

AGS stands for the American Gem Society. AGS certification is one of the most rigorous gemological certifications in the world. AGS certified appraisers are able to add the letters CGA after their name. This tells the insurance company, bank or lawyer that the jeweler’s appraisal is authentic and accurate. Many entities will accept nothing but AGS certified appraisals for jewelry and gemstones.

Correctly establishing the market value of gems, jewelry and precious metals is very difficult because prices are always fluctuating. At Steve Pronko Jewelers, we closely follow the price fluctuations of gems and precious metals and we have the training and experience to recognize the details that can significantly influence valuations.

WATCH BATTERY REPLACEMENT

Steve Pronko Jewelers offers minor watch repairs and watch battery replacements. We have the tools to quickly replace watch batteries while you wait. Even if you can find the replacement battery, this is probably not a job to attempt at home.

At Steve Pronko Jewelers:

  • We carry most watch batteries
  • We change watch batteries while you wait
  • We offer other minor watch repairs

Steve Pronko started out as a watch maker in 1928. Even though we no longer work on mechanical watch movements, our jewelers still know more about timepieces than the average jeweler and we will be happy to look at your watch and suggest a specialized watchmaker to work on your timepiece.
