Top 3 Reasons for Watch Repair

Thursday, January 17, 2019 9:30:06 AM America/New_York

Your watch has an important role in your life. It represents class, style, and serves as the most sophisticated way to manage your time.

When you find an issue with your watch, it can be tempting to troubleshoot on your own, but M.R.T. Jewelers strongly advises you to visit their trained and experienced professionals for any watch repairs. Watches are intricate and made up of many tiny moving parts that you could unknowingly damage when trying to fix your watch on your own.

What are the most common reasons for watch repair?


The most common reason why people visit a professional for watch repair is issues with the battery. Just like most working technology, a battery has a lifespan that can be shortened based on how well you take care of it. For example, various functions of your watch, use of the timer, and extreme temperatures can decrease your battery’s lifespan.  Although a seemingly simple fix, we strongly advise bringing your watch to a trained professional to ensure proper care.

Water Damage

Even a drop of water can cause damage to the internal pieces of your watch. If there are any weakness in the seals of the watch, moisture can seep in and cause internal rusting. When the gears become rusty, they will need to be replaced rather than repaired and will cause issues in the quality of the watch.

Physical Damage

Although many day-to-day activities may seem like a nonissue, consider the impact they have on your watch. The delicacy of its internal structure can be damaged by wearing your watch while participating in vigorous activities or ones that require repetitive movements. We also recommend taking your watch off before you go to bed. Bringing your watch to the reputable technicians at M.R.T. Jewelers is the safest way to correct any issue related to physical damage.

At M.R.T. Jewelers, we want to be your resource for understanding how to best take care of all your jewelry, including watches. For any questions about watch repair or our other Full Circle Jewelry Solutions, call us at (401) 435-3500.

Everything You Need to Know About Ring Resizing

Wednesday, January 16, 2019 9:49:08 AM America/New_York

Picture this: the love of your life is down on one knee asking you to be his wife. It’s all perfect. But when you try on the ring, it doesn’t fit!

Before the happy tears turn to sad tears, M.R.T. Jewelers wants to let you know that we handle ring resizing! Whether your ring is too big or too small, we can size the ring to your perfect fit.

But how is a ring supposed to fit? You should be able to place it on your finger easily and remove it with slight resistance.

What do I do when I need ring resizing?

Your first action should be trying to find an experienced jeweler. When a ring needs to be larger, the band will be cut and additional metal that matches the rest of the band will be added. Conversely, when making a ring smaller, the jeweler will cut the band and solder it shut. The type of metal used on the band impacts how natural the reattachment will appear.

Is there any type of metal that can’t be resized?

Yes. If your ring is titanium, tungsten carbide, or stainless steel, the metals do not allow for a proper reattachment.

How much will it cost to resize my ring?

There are a few factors that determine the cost of resizing a ring.

  • Larger vs. smaller

  • Thickness of the band

  • Stones

  • Type of Metal

At M.R.T. Jewelers, we evaluate each ring to determine the cost of resizing. If you’re interested in making your ring smaller, the price ranges from $25-$90 depending on the factors listed above. When making your ring larger, the cost ranges from $35-$140.

Our experienced jewelers work with you to ensure that your dream ring is the perfect fit. Call us at (401) 435-3500 to learn more about ring resizing and our Full Circle Jewelry Solutions.
