“Please consider coming here. They are professional and kind. I brought my crucifix that broke off my chain. They not only fixed it in a timely manner, but restored it’s look as if it was brand new (and stronger). I will definitely return here for future maintenance & repair. The staff was so helpful and made me feel confident that my heirloom was would be respectfully taken care of. A thousand thank yous to this staff and their assistance.”

“My fiance bought my one of a kind 1920s engagement ring at Watch and Wares. As someone who loves jewelry and collects antique jewelry, I sincerely appreciate the quality of Watch and Wares inventory. The jewelry at Watch and Wares is top notch
I searched online for months trying to find the perfect 1920s art deco engagement ring and easily looked at over 1,000 rings. But there was always something missing – availability, quality, authenticity or the price was not right.
In early March I stopped in the shop to look at one of the rings I saw on their website. I was helped by William, the owner, who genuinely cares about each of his customers. After leaving in great spirits I brought my fiance back to look at the ring about a week later. William was not in that day, but his staff was more than welcoming and helpful.
I personally gave my fiance multiple ring options, but not one ring came close to the one at Watch and Wares (my now engagement ring). I thought my ring was out of our budget, and it was no longer an option. But William and his staff worked with my fiance and five months late he proposed in Bruges, Belgium.
The ring is beyond anything my fiance and I ever dreamed of- thank you William and staff for making this experience beautiful.”

“I came in to have a watch resized and was greeted by the friendly William. He helped me right away and I was in and out in all of about 7 minutes. Which was great considering I had both a toddler and infant with me (they can only handle so long before one of them gets cranky). This place had it all…Amazing customer service, quick, and great prices. While William was working on my watch, I got a chance to browse their jewelry selection. They have the most gorgeous vintage pieces, as well as watches, for both men and women. All in all, if you’re looking to sell or buy unique jewelry, or just have something simple done like getting a watch resized, this is the place for you! I’ll definitely be returning in the future.”

“Beautiful shop! I was in the market for my first Rolex, and I never thought I’d be able to afford my first Rolex at 23 years old! Everyone here was fantastic! They walked me through all the price points and what made certain watches more valuable than others. Ironically gold doesn’t make as big of a difference in price as you’d think.
Non judgmental of your budget. Everyone gets treated the same whether you’re spending $4,000 or $40,000. They’re patient and will answer all your questions, over and over again as they did mine.
I would recommend this place to everyone and believe me I will be back to customize my watch.”

“I just wanted to say a huge thank you to Linda and John!! My fiance originally purchased my ring with the help of Linda. He was so nervous to pick the right ring and Linda went above and beyond to make sure he was completely satisfied with the engagement ring he chose. In July of 2016 we got engaged and the ring was just stunning. We came back to purchase our wedding rings and John helped up ( Linda was helping another customer.) We got great customer service from John, he helped us pick the perfect rings and was even willing to separate another set as the band was exactly what I wanted. They gave us an excellent price. We are a fairly young couple who love antiques, sometimes in Orange we feel we get the cold shoulder because we look young and people assume we don’t have money to spend. This was not the case at all in Watch & Wares, we have always been treated with respect and kindness. Linda has the best communication, she always remembers us and anything we order she is quick to give us a call when it comes in. I decided after we purchased our wedding rings I would come and purchase my husband to be’ s wedding gift, I ordered a pocket watch with engraving. Linda made sure everything was perfect and even took the time to wrap it for me. Our experience here has been above and beyond. Thank you so much!!”

“Let me start with my father has been coming to this establishment for many years. I took in his footsteps and have been coming to William at watch and wares for many years now. He’s been taking care of my jewelry needs now for 20 years plus. I recently took a Breitling Bentley to him that was so damaged that Breitling themselves did not want to fix it would’ve cost me way way too much money so I took it to him and let me tell you within a few weeks he had it handled it looks perfect it works perfect I can’t see myself ever take anything or purchasing any jewelry from anyone else so if you have any jewelry needs Watch and Wares is the place to go see and talk to Williams and Linda thy will definitely take care of you. Thanks again for making it happen with my watch”
