Jewlry is meant to be worn, and that means that it is subjected to all kinds of wear and tear that can potentially cause damage over time. Fortunately, our expert craftsmen can perform all types of fine jewelry repair, and that includes stone replacement. Whether you've lost a stone or one has been damaged, we can find a perfect replacement and put it in for you so the piece you get back is as good as new.
Putting in a new gemstone properly requires skill and experience, both of which our expert craftsmen have in abundance. While each job involves a unique set of considerations, they all generally progress following the steps below.
• The first step in the gemstone replacement process is to clean the piece so that we can make sure there's no additional damage that needs attention and repair.
• Next, we find a gemstone that will fit and that matches the other stones in the piece, if necessary.
• Once we have the stone, we'll set it in place, exactly the same way the old one was.
• Finally, we'll repair any damaged beads, prongs, or any other part of the setting in order to ensure that the new stone is properly and securely held in place.
Especially if we're replacing one of several gemstones contained in the same piece, it's essential that the stone we use matches those other gemstones in every possible way. That's why our gemstone experts take great care when selecting the gemstones we use in the replacement process. We have extensive experience evaluating and selecting gemstones, and we take full advantage of this to ensure that the gemstone we use for your piece will restore it to its original appearance perfectly.
Since resetting stones, and potentially repairing the settings, can impact other parts of the piece as well, we completely refinish each item before returning it to you. Our experts will complete any replacing required, and we'll polish your piece so that it looks just like new when you get it back.
Some gemstone replacement projects are more straightforward than others, but you can be sure that no matter what is involved, our skilled artisans have the skills and knowledge to get the job done right. Not only do they bring years of experience working with fine jewelry to the table, but we make sure they have access to all of the latest technology and top-of-the-line tools so you can have confidence that the work they do will be of unmatched quality and craftsmanship.
Ashlee P. - Renton, WA - January 2015 - GoogleJoseph Jewelry is such an incredible business, I don't even know where to begin! After spending months shopping Jewelry stores my fiancé and I were left disappointed with the lack of variety of styles to choose from as every store had the same designs and when it came to adding sentimental details we kept hearing how expensive it would be to "customize" our rings. These are wedding rings, rings we will wear every day for the rest of our lives so of course we want them to be unique, we weren’t going to settle on something so important. Frustrated with our experiences we set out to find a jeweler that could meet our needs, we came across Joseph Jewelry and after reading their rave reviews on Yelp we decided to make a visit to their store. What a change from the other jewelers we visited. From the moment we walked in the store we were greeted by friendly staff and the selection of stones and settings was almost overwhelming. They can truly make anything! The craftsmanship is incredible, they pay close attention to every detail, they answered every random question we had (even after hours), and walked us through their seamless design process. We started with pictures of rings we liked which turned into sketches from their designers, which then became 3D modeling images, and then the stunning final product! From beginning to end their staff was friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable of the materials we wanted to work with, and they gave us honest feedback on our ideas in order to design a ring that exceeded our expectations! I can’t say enough about the staff, the craftsmanship, and the ring (and neither can everyone that sees it)! We will be back to design the bands as well as design jewelry for family and friends. Did I mention their pricing is in line with other jewelers mass produced basic styles? We’d pay twice the price for the level of care, service, and quality of the final product we received. Thank you Joseph and your amazing staff, you have customers for life!
