Ever since Sam's Jewelry and Watch repair opened its doors Sam Boktor has prided himself with world class repair service and custom design. Featured in LA times as as one of the best repairers in Southern California he consistently ranks as one of the top rated shops in downtown according to both Yelp and Siri.
"Jeweler Sam Boktor starting working in his father’s jewelry store in Egypt when he was barely able to see over the front counter. That may be why he’s not afraid to touch broken and bruised pieces that other jewelers deem “unfixable.”
Boktor’s 8-year-old repair shop — located in the center of downtown’s teeming jewelry district — is known for taking on problematic pieces and for its slick, made-to-order jewelry. The friendly proprietor, who moonlights at his new store, Galleria Jewelry and Watch Repair at the Glendale Galleria mall (location now closed), made bracelets for singer Jason Mraz’s 2008 world tour and once crafted a custom wallet chain for Ricky Martin.
Prices range from $20 to $70, but Boktor often doesn’t charge for routine cleanings and “simple things.”"
