Bench Jewelers: Behind the Scenes

Our in-house jewelry repair shop plays a big role in making things happen here at Josephs. We have a full staff of bench jewelers who do everything from mounting diamonds & colored stones, to restringing strands of pearls, to repairing clasps and even creating custom jewelry pieces. We also have professional watchmakers that help repair all kinds of watches, including Rolex.

We had one of our bench jewelers, Anna, take some behind-the-scenes photos to give everyone a good look into what a jeweler & watchmaker’s day is like. She took over our Instagram account this past week and shared some amazing photos – take a look at the exciting things that happen in our shop each & every day!
