Repairs

All jewelry repairs are done on site by highly experienced bench jewelers. Our lead jeweler, Carol, is a master goldsmith with almost 40 years at the bench. Carol graduated from Gem City College in Quincy, Illinois and has been working as a bench jeweler ever since. Her past employers include independent jewelers in Barringston, Bailey Banks and Biddle, Service Merchandise and Ultra. She is proficient at all types of repair and custom work including designing custom pieces and carving wax models. After 14 years at Steffan’s, customers from her early years still seek her out and bring their jewelry here. If you have a question for Carol, go to the Contact Us section of our webpage.
