I need to have my wedding ring and engagement ring soldered back together. The wedding ring spins and the diamonds on the 2 rings don't match up otherwise. I am not familiar with any local jewelers that do repairs in house. I live in Gainesville, but am willing (and expecting) to travel to Fairfax, Reston, or Vienna. Anyone have a suggestion for a good jeweler they have used before for repairs?

I've had a couple of pieces repaired at K Jewelry in Annandale, 7328 Little River Turnpike, and they did fine, but neither piece had stones.

I've liked dealing with the folks at Direct Jewelry Outlet at 101 East Broad Street in Falls Church but haven't had anything repaired there. They do have a Centreville location.

I can highly recommend Louizos Goldsmiths in Oakton. You can buy good stuff all over the place, but I won't go anywhere else for repairs.

Dominion Jewelers in Falls Church. You can see the goldsmiths (an entire fleet!) working there right behind the counters. I had my wedding band designed there, and have taken many friend to them. They do fanastic work. Ask for Linda. :-) and they do repairs, of course. Right there. Many of the other jewelry stores send their repairs to them.

Ketterman's in Vienna. Family owned business -- been there forever -- they are TRUSTWORTHY. Lots of Vienna people go there because they trust them. I personally knew a woman who ran an antique jewlery business who took her repairs there for many many years.

I actually wound up taking it to Ketterman's. I can't say anything about the work because it hasn't been repaired yet. My only beef so far was how the in processing was handled. All the guy wanted to write on my receipt was wedding set. Hmm... he doesn't know me, and I don't know him. I needed a receipt that described in detail what I was giving him so there would be no questions later down the line. The Ketterman grandson said the rings had been improperly soldered before, so I'll see how their work turns out.
