First of all, Copeland Jewelers has Clay Copeland! Clay Copeland is an actual bench jeweler, and one of the most respected in Austin. For that reason, we’ve had a busy on-site shop in Austin, Tx for well over 30 years. Most people who call themselves “jewelers” may know gemstones and diamonds. However, they are not actual bench jewelers and have no experience creating or repairing jewelry. So, come in and find out for yourself how nice it is to work with a good bench jeweler you can trust.
Our jewelers have over 70 years of combined experience at the bench. Experience in jewelry repair, custom jewelry designing, appraising and creating jewelry for customers. Therefore, our jewelers are highly sought after for work few other people are capable of doing.
Because our manager has over 25 years of experience with pearls and bead stringing, she’s probably the best in town.
Copeland Jewelers’ watchmaker is a Rolex certified technician. So, with this background, he also works on most other models.
Pricing for Repairs & Services
As no two repairs/projects are alike, please be flexible with us in confirming an estimate for costs. You may email or call us about pricing first and we will try our best to help you. However, most times we need to see your jewelry repair or watch before we can give you an accurate estimate. It’s kind of like getting an estimate on a car repair. Since, there may be issues going on that we can only see in person, your estimate may change drastically for unforeseen reasons.
When you bring us an item for a jewelry repair estimate we are usually able to give you a quote on the spot. Yet, on occasion, we will need more time to calculate an estimate. Usually, due to the need for compiling prices for stones and materials from outside sources.
Custom Design Work
Because you want something special, you need someone special like Clay Copeland! Yes, in Austin, Tx you can find a computer programmer, lawyer, engineer, banker or CPA on every corner. But where do you go when you need a talented, respected jeweler? Copeland Jewelers, that’s where. Clay offers custom designs and creations for those one-of-a-kind gifts, people and occasions. Since he has been creating jewelry in Austin, Tx for over 30 years, you know he can be trusted.
*Please remember, you may need to start Custom design and creation by early December for Christmas and other holiday presents. Because we want to make sure you get the attention necessary for that special one-of-a-kind gift.
First of all, you will need to bring your watch to us for a repair estimate. In addition, this usually takes a week to 2 weeks. Since, our watchmaker will do a complete evaluation on your timepiece in order to give you an accurate quote for repair. Then, we will call you with the estimate. As a result, you will be able to make a decision over the phone. Then, either you will go ahead with the repair at that point. Or you may choose to pick up your watch without the recommended repairs. Copeland Jewelers provides these estimate quotes free of charge.
Watch Battery Advice
Most watch batteries have a useful life of 18 to 24 months, some can last as long as 5 years. But how long the battery lasts is dependent on the watch and its features, not the battery. It’s bad for your watch to sit with a depleted battery so replacing a watch battery every two years is a good practice. When your second hand skips 3-4 seconds at a time, it’s because your battery is probably low. Many modern watches also have an end-of-life indicator.
