What To Do During The Ice Storm??

I’m staring out my window and watching/listening to CP24 news channel watching out for the impending doom that is suppose to hamper our weekend, I.E. freezing rain and very nasty windy rainy cold “Spring” weather? So… Not being the greedy type, I also don’t believe in jewellery emergencies. Therefore, I decree Saturday April 14, 2018 Nasty Weather Day!! Can’t say snow day, however, you never know in the province of Ontario. It’s quite possible that Ringleader Fine Jewellers could be closed on Nasty Weather Day. Here are some suggestions for what YOU can do on Nasty Weather Day. You could help your wife clean the house, like I just might do, binge watch your favorite series on Netflix, make sure you have working flashlights and a supply of candles a lighter or matches in case we get power failures, however you might want to do that ASAP. But the most important thing to do on Nasty Weather Day is to do some SPRING JEWELLERY CLEANING!! That’s right!! Get together all your broken down, single earrings, out dated and unwearable jewellery that’s just collecting dust when you could bring it into Ringleader Fine Jewellers and recreate it, or trade it in for something in our showcases or GET CASH for it!!!

Also, even though we most likely will not be open on Nasty Weather Day look at your ring(s) and try to remember the last time you had them inspected and cleaned. I tell my customers that they should have this done EVERY SIX MONTHS. It’s an easy habit to get into and usually complimentary at RINGLEADER FINE JEWELLERS.

Our usual hours are Tuesday-Thursday…10:00am to 6:00pm; Friday-Saturday…10:00am to 5:00pm and closed on Sundays and Mondays.

Stay SAFE

Is quicker the better way when it comes to jewellery repair?

Same-day or overnight delivery guaranteed.  That is Amazon’s key to success.  Consumers love instantaneous gratification.  I know I do.  I can be anywhere, order something online and have it sent to me the following day.

So it really doesn’t surprise me when I get inquiries requesting jewellery repairs done on the spot while waiting.  Once again, clients want instantaneous gratification.  In this case, it is not practical.  Let’s go back one step.  A potential fiancee has purchased a custom made ring for his hope to be a bride but it is a bit too small or a favorite piece of jewellery has been inherited and it needs tip work.  When you have such meaningful heirlooms, isn’t the best job possible more important than being expeditious?  If you had to wait an extra week or two for a top-notch job, as opposed to waiting half an hour for novice workmanship, which would you prefer?  Once you have decided to leave your precious gems, a repair bag with the necessary information will be reported, logged into our data system and a photo of your trinket with the instructions will be taken.

Alright, so now you have been reassured that it is ideal to have the best possible job done.  Now you are being told the job is not being done on the premises.  More caution bells are ringing in your head.  How do your precious baubles get from point A to point B?  There are two possible scenarios.  Either personally or by courier.  Ringleader Fine Jewellers only considers one option.  We personally deliver, consult with the finest experts in the trade and pick up our repairs when they are completed.  Our suppliers also have a logging and tracking system.

Another query from inquiring minds is that seems like a lot of extra work when you could just hire a tradesperson to work in your shop?  One might think so except for the fact that jewellery is an extremely specialized field.  For instance, in creating a diamond ring the following experts would be involved:  If complicated, a CAD designer would design the ring.  It would then go to a casting house to cast, produce the piece of jewellery.  A goldsmith would then clean up and polish it before sending it to a diamond setter for installing the diamond.  If a message is inserted in the ring, an engraver would do this at the end.

Ringleader Fine Jewellers has been specializing in custom-designed jewellery and repairs with over tens of thousands successfully completed for twenty years.   We are a local, independent, family-run business looking forward to assisting you in your next milestone or celebration.  So now you understand that in the jewellery industry, quicker isn’t always better.
