Jewelry Repair, Services
Here at Hupp Jewelers we do Insurance Value Replacement Appraisals and Fair Market Value Appraisals. Fair market value is an amount you could reasonably expect to sell your piece of jewelry, as an example on Ebay.
All appraisals are completed within ten days to two weeks. The cost is $90 per item being appraised. Express appraisals are $115 per item and it is best to call ahead and set an appointment for an express.
*If you desire to sell an item to us, we can not appraise it. This would be an ethics violation.
Hupp Jewelers boasts that we work with one of the best jewelry designers in the city. The process starts with setting up an appointment with our designer. Be sure to bring your ideas, along with any photographs you may want to use.
We do CAD (computer-aided design) renderings. We can use your stones or metals in the new design or put towards the cost of your piece.
Pricing is up front and clearly communicated throughout the process. The process from being to end is generally three to four weeks.
Emergency ring removal
We can cut off most rings with our diamond edge ring cutter.
Estate and Pre-Owned Jewelry
Jewelry, metal and coin purchases
We buy scrap gold and silver, as well as sterling silver flatware, and gold or silver coins. Estimates are available when you bring your items into our store, and some items may need to be left with us for assessing.
We also buy luxury brand watches, diamonds, and used jewelry. Bring us your old treasure and we will make you a fair and honest offer.
Restringing is a specialty art, and we are pleased to provide this service to our customers. We restring pearls and beads of every kind. Prices begins at $6.5 per inch.
Ring Sizing, soldering, and repair
Shop online or in the store. Angela, The Jewelry Coach, is available via facetime consultations or will arrange to come to your location. Contact us at # 317 845-0777 for details. The process can be easy and convenient. If something is not available on our website Angela will work with you to find exactly what you want.
We specialize in custom orders. If you are looking for something and cannot find it, we are happy to try to order it for you. We have many resources for items that may be hard to find, such as Sterling or Gold Medic Alert bracelets, money clips, cuff links, baby jewelry, etc.
Watch batteries and repairs
We change watch batteries starting at $18 per watch. Most brands can be done while you wait. We carefully check your watch for loose crystals, broken links and floating parts. Then we use specialized tools specifically made for the removal of watch backs. We check the gaskets, test the old battery and, if necessary, replace it with a new battery.
Waterproof watches will need to be pressure tested before returning to underwater activities. This takes 1-2 weeks and is an extra $75 charge.
We also do watch repairs.
