When you have beautiful fine jewelry, you want to display it to the world. That is what it's for, after all. But wearing your jewelry also exposes it to various hazards and forces that can cause different types of damage, including the thinning of the channels holding your gemstones in place.
When this occurs, the setting may no longer be strong enough, and you can begin to lose gems. Whether your stones have actually begun to fall out or you just noticed that they're a little loose, our experts can help by providing professional channel repair. We'll restore your channel setting to its original strength, and tighten all gemstones to ensure they stay properly in place so you can continue wearing your favorite pieces without worry.
Regardless of the extent of the wear your piece is exhibiting, we can complete quality channel repair without changing the overall appearance of your piece at all. We'll take all of the individual features of your piece into account as we proceed, but the general steps we follow for every custom channel repair remain the same to ensure you receive the highest possible quality service.
• The first thing we'll dow on any channel repair job is to assess the amount of damage and check the security of all gemstones in the piece.
• Next, we'll match the metal both in color and quality to ensure a seamless look once the process is complete.
• We take that metal match and form it into a wire, that we can then work into the piece.
• To attach the new metal, we use laser technology to integrate it seamlessly into the piece.
• Finally, we'll refinish and polish the piece to have it looking like new for you.
To complete this type of channel repair, we make use of state-of-the-art laser technology, which allows us to direct intense heat only on the precise spots where it's needed. Many types of gemstones can be damaged by heat, and so with these lasers, we can work in close proximity to the gems in your piece without harming them at all.
In the hands of our expert craftsmen, these laser tools ensure that you will get your jewelry back with a fully restored channel setting, and there will be no sign whatsoever of the work that we did.
If you did lose any gemstones due to a deteriorating channel setting, we'll reset them for you or source replacements that match your existing stones. We also have the skills and knowledge required to identify the composition of the metal used in your piece so we can match it exactly during the repair process.
And all of this means that you get your favorite piece of jewelry back looking even better than the day you bought it, so you can show it off once again without worry.
Blakknight2002 - Seattle, WA - April 2016 - GoogleI was completely new to the jewelry buying experience. Being new to the Seattle Area, I had no idea where to even start my search. After a Google search I found Joseph Jewelry with a 5 Star Google rating, so I made the decision to check them out. After arriving to the store, the atmosphere was very pleasant and the staff was extremely friendly. I worked with Tony to walk through all of my requirements for my custom designed jewelry. He was really helpful in refining my requirements as well as making suggestions to make my idea work even better. After getting setup with an account on their website, and getting the team at Joseph started, an artist sketch of my custom design was ready in a matter of days, which was excellent since I was on a tight schedule. Tony communicated to the artist a slight adjustment to the center gem in the artist sketch that meet my expectation and I was ready to see the ring layout in the CAD drawing. Usiel provided me with an amazing CAD drawing that was even better than what I imagined. He even worked with me to make sure alignments of the rings would work when it is placed on a finger. I was so happy with the way it turned out I was ready to go to production. My ring was ready ahead of schedule which was just perfect for this being my first experience. I would highly recommend anyone looking to do custom work or just looking for a fine piece of Jewelry to check out Joseph Jewelry. I hope this review encourages more people to shop here. Thank you Joseph Jewelry for making this first time experience one to remember. I will definitely shop with you again. Signed A very happy and satisfied client
