Services We Offer


On-Site Jewelry Repair

We have full-time jewelers on site at our New Braunfels showroom. With decades of experience, we work on your gold, platinum, and silver jewelry using a mix of laser technology and traditional techniques. We are proficient in repairs, setting, sizing, prong work, soldering, refurbishing, and many other specialized services for your fine jewelry.

Free Cleaning and Prong Check

We will ultrasonic, steam clean, and check the prongs on your fine jewelry pieces at no charge, regardless of place of purchase. You can also opt to leave your jewelry with one of our jewelers for a polish and deep cleaning for a small fee, depending on the size and metal composition of the piece.

We Buy Gold and Diamonds

Bring in your gold & diamonds for cash or trade. Ernesto’s buys all precious metals including gold, silver, platinum, and diamond jewelry for immediate payment. You can also trade any of these items for new jewelry from our large selection of fine pieces.

On-Site Appraisals

We provide written appraisals on all jewelry purchased from Ernesto’s Jewelry at no additional cost. The appraisals include all the specifications of the piece, photograph, and value. For insurance purposes, jewelry not purchased at Ernesto’s can be appraised starting at $50.00.

Custom Jewelry

Our Custom design jewelers do both traditional hand-carved wax castings and state of the art computer-aided designing. We can help you design any piece of jewelry you can imagine from engagement and wedding rings, to pendants, earrings, or other unique creations, using materials you may already own, including your gold, diamonds, and gemstones.


Single diamonds that you purchase from Ernesto’s Jewelry can be traded in towards the purchase of a new diamond. This includes single center diamonds, solitaire pendants, and diamond stud earrings. You will receive the full price you originally paid for your diamond, with the condition that the diamond is in its original condition, free of any chips or scratches, accompanied by its original Certificates.

“Absolutely the best Jeweler I know. I would recommend Ernie and his staff to anyone I know and have done so for 30+ years. These folks simply care about all their customers and always make it right.”
