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 and changed while you wait. While the average life of a standard battery is 12-18 months, we'll replace it as needed for 3 years, free of charge.  We proudly use Renata® batteries.  

* Citizen® Eco-Drive, Seiko® Solar, and certified dive watches must be sent to the factory or brand-authorized service center if a new power cell is needed.  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.

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

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).



A non-refundable $20 up front shipping fee comes off the final price if you approve the service estimate.  There is 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.

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 requirements in order to service those watches.

A few common services and starting prices:
  • Stem $60+ / Crown $60+ / Case tube $60+
  • Crystals:
    • Standard round glass $75+ (depending on thickness)
    • Fancy shape / custom cut glass $100+ (depending on availability)
    • Sapphire, vintage pocket watch, & Rolex® / luxury $100+
  • Quartz movement service including replacement power cell, cleaning of case & bracelet, water resistance test if applicable (luxury brands will be higher):
