Shop Policies & Services

Resetting of Diamonds
It is our general policy not to work with customer-supplied diamonds.  With more than twenty years of gem-buying experience and a Graduate Gemologist on staff, Caleb Meyer Studio aims to provide value to customers through investing significant time and resources to source the best and most beautifully cut diamonds from a number of reputable sellers. These stones are offered in the shop at competitive prices consistent with their quality. However, we recognize that many customers come into possession of family diamonds through gift or inheritance, and exceptions to this policy may be made on a case-by-case basis.  If upon evaluation we determine that a customer-supplied family diamond is suitable for use in one of our settings, we may be willing to incorporate the stone into a custom piece.

Resetting of Colored Stones
Due to the inherent fragility and uncertain valuation of customer-supplied colored gemstones, we regret that we are unable to incorporate them into our settings.   There are rare exceptions to this, and we are always willing to help our customers evaluate the gemstones in their family collections. 

Appraisals
Our company Graduate Gemologist Stephanie Richards can evaluate your jewelry collection and provide appraisal services. Evaluation is done without charge, while appraisals are billed on a time basis.  Once your jewelry has been appraised, we are able to update the appraisals at your (or your insurer’s) request without additional charge.  This courtesy can be a necessary and valuable service given the inevitable fluctuations in precious metal and gemstone prices.

Diamond/Gem Certification
Customers possessing diamonds or gemstones of significant value may wish to have their stone(s) evaluated by the Gemological Institute of America (GIA) to have a grading report/certification issued.  Such reports can be useful tools in determining value in the appraisal process or for estate purposes.   Caleb Meyer Studio is happy to educate customers about whether such evaluations are warranted in their particular case and facilitate the process if desired.

Repairs
The jewelry produced at Caleb Meyer Studio is of the highest quality and is built to be durable. If pieces that you have purchased from us are in need of repair, we will perform repairs as promptly and reasonably as possible. While not able to perform repairs on jewelry that we did not produce or sell, we will evaluate your repair needs as a courtesy and attempt to make a referral to a capable repair person.
