- Royal Jewel Setting Company
32 West 48th Street; 212-997-1571
After 25 years in the business, owner John Givelekian boasts, “If I can’t fix it, it can’t be fixed,” and clients like Myrna Felder (who, as wife and law partner of Raoul, knows her baubles) agree. Services run from simple stone cleaning (which starts at all of $5) and retipping a worn prong to more elaborate work like resoldering a necklace’s broken-off bail.
