After having designed jewelry for 20 years, P.
Michael completed the Computer Aided Design classes at The Gemological Institute
of America in Carlsbad, California. He also attends workshops to stay up-to-date
on changes in digital jewelry design. Michael will design jewelry for your
diamonds or color gemstones. We count it a compliment that many people tell us
they were referred to McFarlin's by someone who was very happy with the design
process, our craftsmanship and our ability to put them at ease. You may view his
designs on this site or in our showroom. Please do not have jewelry designed by
anyone prior to seeing samples of their jewelry design and
craftsmanship. A professional jewelry designer will be more than
pleased to accommodate your request. The beauty of computer aided
design is you see a photo quality image of the design before the piece is
completed. Thus, there is no surprise with the finished
jewelry. All phases of jewelry design, wax work, casting, gemstone setting
and finish work is completed in our store. You may see each stage of our
progess if you so desire. Our satisfaction assurance program affords you peace
of mind. We sell our designs and remake jewelry for persons throughout the
United States and overseas. If you are not located in Amarillo and are
interested in jewelry design contact us via email firstname.lastname@example.org
JEWELRY REPAIR & HAND
P. Michael McFarlin, owner, performs jewelry
repairs on site at McFarlins Jewelry. We've had persons tell us they like
the idea of the owner completing their repairs personally. On site repairs
have been completed at McFarlin's since 1989 because it ensures the
best possible outcome for our valued customers. We offer Express
Service for those who require same or next day service (please note: though we
try to have all possible parts on hand, there will be times we cannot perform
repairs same day). Having a laser welder we are able to repair jewelry
containing gemstones that cannot withstand the heat associated with more
traditional jewelry repair methods. When your jewelry is repaired by our expert
jeweler you will not have a line in the back of your ring, it will not be thin
and we will refinish the ring to look as nice as it did the day it was
purchased. Not all jewelry stores include checking and tightening all loose
stones, re-finishing or rhodium plating when sizing your rings. If the
ring is not refinished there will be an obvious difference in the appearance of
the sized ring. Trade-in broken rings, used gold, platinum or diamond jewelry to
pay for jewelry repairs.
We don't call it custom because there is nothing
"custom" about ordering in a ready made mounting and setting your
gemstones. Catalogs are available for shopping, we will find a
piece of jewelry in our case that is the same height, width, etc for you to try
on to be certain it works on your hand. You may trade-in broken
or unused gold, platinum or diamond jewelry to make a payment or, if you have
enough gold, pay completely for your new remount.
Because we design and manufacture jewelry
we stock a nice selection of heads, crowns, and bezels in stock to set your
gemstone in our mounting or yours. Our in-store bench jeweler will set your
gemstone(s) same or next day by request. Express charges will apply for
same or next day service.
We replace batteries and remove links from bracelet
style watches while you wait. Round crystals are kept in stock at all times.
Other crystals, movements and cleaning is completed by the appropriate
service center. Please note: we do not mail your wach without your
JEWELRY APPRAISAL (We appraise for insurance
replacement and estate purposes only)
Appraisals are completed by the owner, Graduate
Gemologist/Fellow of The Gemological Association of Great Britain, P. Michael
McFarlin. Current fee for appraisal service is $95.00 for the first jewelry
item (an additional fee will apply to charm and slide bracelets) and $85.00 for
each additional appraisal. Because of the need for the utmost in
professionalism and accuracy, it is our policy not to give verbal appraisals for
insurance purposes. We do not appraise your jewelry and then
purchase. It is considered unethical to do so because an appraiser can
under value your jewelry simply for the purpose of buying at a low price.
Please note: jewelry appraisals are not created equal. A person who
has not completed a professional appraisal course nor has passed the
examinations associated with gemstone identification is not qualified.
Your elder was right when he stated "You get what you paid for". Please
note your jewelry is not fully insured under your homeowner's policy unless you
have presented a receipt or appraisal to your insurance agent. If you
are looking for jewelry coverage through another source, we highly recommend
Jewelers Mutual as they insure jewelry stores and personal jewelry only.
