Bailment is the delivery of personal items by its owner to a third party on the condition that it will be returned as soon as the conditions of the bailment have elapsed or been performed. The bailer delivers and the bailee takes delivery of the items.
There are many different types of bailment and the bailee's duty will vary accordingly. Where you take delivery of an owner's items so that you can derive some sort of benefit, you are called a bailee for reward. This would apply to your circumstances where you take jewelry in for repair. The ‘reward' would be your fee for fixing the jewelry.
If the goods are lost and damaged, and it is alleged that the bailee failed to take sufficient care, the onus of proof lies on the bailee to establish that, in the circumstances, he took an appropriate degree of care, or that his failure did not contribute to the loss.
I'm not sure where you got this distinction between bailee and bailee for reward. There are other types of bailees but in this instance you would only be a bailee for reward.
