We change over the years, and fortunately our jewelry can change with us thanks to professional ring resizing services from Joseph Jewelry. Our state-of-the-art equipment and expert techniques allow us to adjust the fit of your ring until it's just right. Our skilled artisans bring many years of experience working with fine jewelry to the table, so you can be sure your piece is in the best possible hands.
Whether your wedding ring is feeling a little loose or a little tight all of a sudden, or you want to have an old family heirloom ring adjusted so that you or a loved one can wear it, we have the skills and experience to deliver exactly what you need.
There are several steps in the resizing process, and each is carried out precisely by one of our professional craftsmen. We also use only advanced laser technology, which enables us to focus the heat on the specific area of the ring we need to work on for resizing purposes.
• The first step in the resizing process is to cut the bottom of the shank, which is where we will insert or remove material, depending on whether we're taking the size up or down.
• Next, we work in the new material or remove the excess, and then check to make sure the ring is properly sized.
• Once that's done, we check all gemstones to make sure they're still secure in their settings.
• The final step in the process is to restore the ring to its original appearance, and we accomplish this in a variety of ways depending on the types of features the ring has.
One significant concern involved in ring resizing is that the heat used can adversely affect any gemstones present, either directly or by loosening the setting holding the stone. The lasers we use for cutting and reforming of the ring allow us to avoid gemstone-related complications because they let us focus the heat precisely where we need it without impacting nearby areas.
Despite this, we still check every gemstone in the ring following a resizing just to make sure nothing has become loose. If we do find a loose setting, we'll sure it up so that we return the ring to you in perfect condition.
While many rings don't contain much detail at the bottom of the shank, some may include custom engraving or some other features that can be impacted by the resizing process. Once the ring has been reconnected and the size confirmed, we'll restore all custom engraving to match whatever was there previously so there is no mark from the resizing process left on the ring.
Any ring we resize will be returned to you in brand new condition. Once all technical details and gemstones have been attended to, we'll re-plate the ring if necessary, and then polish it so it's ready to go right back on your finger the second you pick it up.
Matthew E. - Tumwater, WA - February 2016 - YelpAbsolutely fantastic experience designing my fiance's engagement ring! Working with Pascale and Bonnie through multiple design iterations was an incredibly enjoyable process. I provided multiple examples of what my fiance liked, what she liked and disliked about each one. Then after we had already gone through a few designs I completely changed it up and worked with an existing design. The huge change didn't phase them at all and they kept the same design notes in the customization process. Not only did they do all that, but they put a rush on the design when my fiance decided she wanted to visit the store. She had no idea that we were in the process of designing a custom ring, so Bonnie & Pascale created a fake project to show her using the design we had. Overnight Bonnie did the CAD & 3D model to show my fiance in store. They all went above and beyond, helping to refine her tastes better than I ever could have done myself, even as far as having Joseph bring out the two diamonds (Ideal Square and Princess) to "show her the difference" without her knowing it was her deciding which would be in her ring. During the visit and all the way until I told her the background after proposing my fiance had no idea what was going on. They put a rush on the manufacturing, too. Couldn't have possibly been happier with the entire experience. Very professional, flexible, understanding, and always on board to to make not only the ring perfect but the entire experience of design through proposal. Couldn't recommend Joseph Jewelry any more strongly.
