Deadeye have you ever been to MRT jewelers on Pawtucket ave, east providence? They pretty much resize anything! Someone I know brought in broken chains (in gold) and they somehow put it to gether and made a whole new bracelet looked cool!

willomenia, I know the place, but, have never been inside. I will avoid them, till I have no choice! If you know what I mean! I understand they do a lot of custom designs, and will work with you if you have a specific design in mind. I hear a lot of very good things about them. If I ever need a JR ring resized, they are the ones to do it.

willomenia - Well I finally went to MRT. I had them work on my JR Ambrosia bracelet. It is a toggle closure, and it fell off my arm twice. Once, while I was just driving in the car. It landed in my lap. I had them remove the toggle closure and replace it with a lobster claw. I used the lobster claw from an old JR necklace that was too short for me now. It came out beautifully and they only charged me $20! I was just thrilled. Now, I can wear it and not worry.

Hi, can you tell us what repair place you use? I have family from Cranston, Rhode Island---they were Irish immigrants back in the mid-to late 1800 and worked in the mills.

Sheesh, Pranda North America was on Sockonosset Road, in Cranston. It runs off of Pontiac Avenue, leading into Garden City and Chapel View. However, when I went to Garden City a few weeks ago, the place where they were located is gone, and replaced with yet another a new strip mall. I am wondering if their relationship with Ripka is still intact, since its purchase by Excel.
