About Dallas Metalsmiths also know as Dallas Silversmiths

hired 1 time on Thumbtack

We do all types of metal polishing, repairs, refurbishing, and plating.

- 24k gold
- 999 and sterling silver
- Copper
- Brass
- Nickel
- Bronze

Sorry, we do not do chrome because of City of Dallas licensing.

Did you know that chrome is nickel plating with chromium to protect the nickel from tarnishing? We also do nickel plating.

We do not have a minimum order requirement.

Our special skills are color matching and redoing your home. Want to change the color of the bathroom or kitchen fixtures from old brass to new brass, or change it to satin nickel? No problem!

We can match most all metals, including oil-rubbed bronzes and Tuscan with copper accents.

What do people love about our company?

- Fast turn-around. Depending on our workload, we try to return items in 3-10 days, but in most cases, at least two weeks.

- We have been in business since 1972 and adding only 3 of our employees alone. We have almost 100 years of experience.

- We also manufacturer pieces, from belt buckles to custom jewelry items or the missing let to a tray or clock.

- We pay top dollar for sterling silver items. If it is scrap, we pay more because we need it for our plating tanks. If we don't purchase from you, we have to buy it somewhere. And, if it has value over the silver, we have a customer list of those desiring certain patterns and pieces that might be what you have. If so, we can pay more because we have a ready buyer.

If you have any questions, please call or email us.

We look forward to assisting you.
