The gemstones in your rings or other pieces of fine jewelry are likely the most eye-catching elements included, and maintaining their sparkle is vital to ensuring the enduring beauty of the piece. But just like anything else, they can become damaged, scratched, or broken over time due to an accident or simply normal wear and tear.
In order to keep your piece looking like new, we offer comprehensive stone repair and polishing services to address any issues you may have with the gemstones included. The stones in rings in particular are especially vulnerable to damage, as your hands are constantly coming into contact with all kinds of surfaces that could potentially cause damage.
Whether you need a small chip in your stone repaired, or you want to take an older stone and have it recut to create a more modern look, our expert jewelers are up to the task. We'll take all unique elements of your piece into account when working on it, but in general, the process we follow for all of these types of jobs is as follows.
• First, we'll assess your gemstones to determine if there was material lost and how best to go about restoring the stone's original appearance.
• Next, our gem cutter will resurface the damaged area by shaving away layers from the gem evenly from every angle. This ensures that the symmetry of the stone is preserved at the same time that the original shape is recovered.
• Once the proper shape is achieved and all signs of damage have been removed, we'll re-polish the stone so it shines like new.
There are several situations in which you may want to come to us for gemstone repair and reshaping services. While damage is the most common reason, you may also simply want to change the shape of an existing stone, which is something our experts can accomplish with ease.
If you're trying to modernize an older piece of jewelry, one great way to go about it is to adjust the cut of the gemstones to a more modern variety. Different types of cuts have gone in and out of fashion over the years, and so you may find that a piece you love incorporates an outdated style that you'd like to update. Or you may want to give a new piece a bit of antique flair by resurrecting an older style cut, which is something we can do for you as well.
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
