Yes we did – Vintage Gibson Guitar Restoration!

We do pretty much every type of jewelry work here at Oceanside Jewelers, but every now and then we get a project that provides a way to apply our bench skills. This time we had a customer with a highly sought after vintage Gibson hollow electric guitar. This one was special in that all of the components were original, including the broken tailpiece. We were able to rebuild the hinge that connects the tail to side of the guitar, undoing a previous solder repair and restoring motion to the hinge and preserving all the original parts on the guitar! In the end it fit perfectly back onto the body of the guitar and a decades old instrument got a new lease on life.

If you have an instrument repair, or any other specialty project that might requie delicate metalwork, don’t be afraid to ask the master jeweler at Oceanside Jewelers.




Chad Elliott Featured in Carlsbad Lifestyle Magazine


We’re beaming with pride around the shop over the recent issue of Carlsbad Lifestyle Magazine, which featured a full interview with owner and master jeweler Chad Elliott! Chad talks about the early days, working after school as a kid in a jewelry shop and learning the hand tools and craftsmanship that are too rare these days, and how this early experience shaped his approach and philosophy towards jewelry making. The broad knowledge of skill and technique that Chad has is remarkable in any craft, and is what separates our store from almost any other jeweler you’ll find.

Why get a Loan from a Jewelry Pawnshop?


Small personal loans, sometimes called consumer loans, can be a tricky thing to navigate. However, getting a collateral loan on your jewelry, diamonds, precious metals, or fine watch is perhaps the simplest and most straightforward way to get a personal loan. Unlike payday loans and auto title loans, your valuables are kept safely with the lender, meaning you’re not vulnerable to sky high interest rates and harassing collections.

Here’s an incredible before and after shot of one of Chad’s recent restorations. This time he was able to take a mangled Marquise setting, chop the walls of the setting, and completely rebuild it as a round setting. All while filling, straightening, and polishing the rest of the band! True master craftsmanship!
