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.
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types of cuts have gone in and out of fashion over the years, and so you may find that a piece you love incorporates an outdated style that you'd like to update.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.
I just had a custom engagement ring made by Joseph Jewelry. The ring turned out wonderful and the overall experience was better than I would have expected. I came in with a budget in mind but not necessarily sure what I would be able to get. I spoke to a rep (Danny) and it was explained to me what I could get at my budget, below it and above it, and most importantly for me, why. I never felt like they were up-selling me, but rather explaining to me my options and letting me choose for myself. That helped make the experience a little more personal rather than just being another sale. And I ended up right around my price point. The CAD artist (Usiel) pretty much hit the nail on the head the first time around and was able to generate a rendering that almost looked real. He incorporated a pattern from a family bracelet into the ring. Viewing the model is a pretty nice feature when having something custom done before having it made. Communication was easy. You set up an account that you can email through as well as upload and download images. Basically monitor and archive the process from payment to design. They had a target date and I picked it up that day. When it comes down to it, it was just a great experience overall and the ring turned out better than expected. Thanks to those I worked with at the shop! Dean
