Jewelry Repair & Custom Design
Since 1986 CornerStone Fine Jewelry has provided expert jewelry repair and custom design to the Springfield area.  Our award-winning jewelers perform the work in house and we always offer FREE inspection, cleaning, and repair estimates, regardless of where the item was purchased.

Some of the work that we do:
  • Ring sizing
  • Prong re-tipping, prong replacement, & head replacement
  • Stone tightening & remounts
  • Chain and bracelet solders and clasp replacement
  • Pearl Restringing
  • Rhodium plating (gold only)
  • Custom jewelry design: drawing, wax carving, casting & stone setting
  • Machine & hand engraving
  • Watch bands, link adjustments, & batteries (see below)
While a very few restrictions do apply, most of our work carries a one year service warranty.  We are happy to work on jewelry that was not purchased with us; however, we always recommend first checking with the original store to verify that there is no existing purchase warranty or service plan, as it would be voided once the work is done.

Watch Batteries
We gladly replace batteries in most watches.*  Most battery replacements** are $15, changed while you wait, and we'll simply replace it as needed for the next 3 years, free of charge.  

* We reseal each watch appropritately.  However, we use hand tools, do not water test any watch, and assume no liability for the water resistance of any watch in which we have changed the battery.

** Seiko Perpetual Calendar watches are either $25 or $50, depending on the model, must be left for at least an hour, and carry only a one year guarantee.   Some digital sports watches carry only a one year guarantee on the battery due to the increased functionality of the watch and subsequent increased drain on the battery.

Watch Repair
Watches that need service beyond a battery replacement are sent to our AWCI certified CMW21 professional watchmaker.  
Estimates are returned in approximately 2-3 weeks; most services require an additional 2-4 weeks (often longer for vintage/antique or luxury brands due to limited parts availability).

The minimum charge for any service sent to our watchmaker is $60.


A $20 up front estimate fee is waived if you agree to the service. No additional charge if the service is declined.  

Citizen Eco-Drive watches are sent to Citizen USA for service. Seiko Solar and Perpetual Calendar watches are sent to Seiko Service USA. While there are variations the prices listed below are a good starting point.

Prices for luxury brands (Rolex, etc) will be higher.  Rolex and certain other luxury brands automatically require a full service (complete overhaul) which will be reflected in the service estimate. We are bound to those service requirements per service contracts with those brands in order to service those watches.

  • Stem $60+ / Crown $60+ / Case tube $60+
