Repair versus Restoration

Many use the terms, repair and restoration, interchangeably. There is a difference.

Repair, is when an item is fixed. You may see some signs of the original damage. For example, if you ran over a wide bracelet with figures on it, the bracelet can be reshaped and polished. After it is repaired, it will fit well and look very good, but on very close inspection you may notice a slight indentation on the rim. Also, a few details on the figures may not be as fine in detail.

Restoration, is when an item is practically brought back to its original form. The slight indentation on the rim will be worked and possibly filled in and the detail on the figures will be hand engraved and worked. A repair may take a few hours whereas the restoration may take days to complete. There will be a major price difference. On some items restoration cannot even be done. We recommend “repair” on items. We rarely do restoration work.
