Mount-N-Repair is a family affair



At Mount-N-Repair one can find wall-to-wall sterling silver, cosmic art, engraved stones, and a family that makes you feel at home. Putting their heart in their craftsmanship, Mount-N-Repair has the largest selection of sterling silver jewelry in metro Detroit for 30 years and counting.

This family-owned business travels to nine major jewelry shows a year and brings many unique pieces from all over the world to create a diverse selection. Their showcase includes 10,000 rings, 4,000 earrings, and 50 kilograms of chains and bracelets on display. "If you're looking for something, you're going to find it," says Joel, owner of Mount-N-Repair. "I try to sell things lower than needed, and we stand by it."

Winning Best Jewelry Store and Jewelry Repair by readers in 2014, Mount-N-Repair fixes anything in your jewelry box. Whether it's changing watch batteries, fixing the tightness of clip-on earrings, placing a diamond, or fixing clasps, Joel says it's "no problem." "We fix junk to diamonds and everything in between," he says.

They offer many services including ring sizing, stone placing, polishing, and engraving. Ring sizing is $35 and instead of charging the average engraving price at $3 per word like other places, Mount-N-Repair offers a standard $15. They have also switched from torching the jewelry to using a laser welder.

For men, they carry silver and leather bracelets, rings, earrings, and pendants. If you don't see exactly what you're looking for, Joel and his family can make it.

Joel runs the store with his wife Lia, son Dylan and sister Kim. The family works hard to create a relaxing atmosphere and treats everyone like family. "We play reggae music and don't pressure people to buy anything," says Dylan. "Our customers stay loyal; if they come in once they'll come forever."

Whether looking for authentic bullhorns, red coral from the sea, or urns on a necklace or to change a pair of clip-ons to pierce earrings or to make the perfect piece, Mount-N-Repair offers it all. The 2,000-square-foot store, full of silver, is constantly turning their merchandise and can do custom orders in a two- to-four week period. Get your Christmas shopping done early and find a beautiful piece or repair an old one at Mount-N-Repair.
