How to Replace Practically Anything
Lost an earring? A Scrabble tile? Here’s how to replace it.
China, Crystal, and SilverWhat to know: You can usually find the name or number of a china pattern on the back of a plate. Before you approach a manufacturer or a replacement service about matching a piece of cut or etched crystal, take a photo or wrap a sheet of lightweight paper around a glass and make a rubbing of the design with a soft pencil.

Where to go: Replacements, Ltd.
