updated: Aug 20, 2014, 2:34 PM

I am looking for someone who can repair an antique silver and turquoise bracelet. The jewelers I have taken it to wont touch it. Any help here would be greatly appreciated.

Definitely Patco on Haley. Everything that 260 said is true. I have used them for years for new things and for repairs.

The Gem Shop on upper State are excellent craftspeole who have repaired and made custom jewellery for my family. Also, Carl Stanley teaches in the Adult Ed department of SBCC. Mr Stanley teaches many sections of jewellery making, including the making of SouthWest silver, turquoise pieces.

Another vote for Pat at Patco. My family has gone to him for years. I was first referred to him by a friend who trusted him with her large family heirloom diamond ring.

I also have a vintage silver and turquoise bracelet that I will be taking to Patco soon alone with a number of other pieces including a custom piece for my guy as a surprise,which will be a surprise as he dose t read Edhat. He had a. custom abolone and gold ring done there for me which turned out great.

I needed an inlay in old Zuni ear rings replaced. I contacted the Museum of Indian Arts in Sante Fe, New Mexico and they gave me a name of the person who did all their repairs. Everything turned out perfectly and we handled it with a phone call and the US Mail. It was also very reasonably priced the they ear rings came back polished to their original sheen. Very nice.

I would avoid Patco.
Patco did a very bad job resizing my wedding ring.
They told me they'd put in an insert to size it up but instead, chose to stretch it. They damaged the ring in doing so by breaking the bonded metal at the seams.
- I have trust issues with what they say they'll do,
- They have poor quality of workmanship.
- I won't be back.
