The type of finish on a ring can have a significant impact on the overall appearance of the piece. There are several different popular finish options, but all of them will eventually show signs of wear over time, and that can certainly take away from the beauty of the original design. And, of course, this type of damage will begin to show faster on the pieces you wear most often.
So, if you find that your wedding rings or other favorite pieces are beginning to look a little dull or worn, it's time to bring them in for some professional attention from our skilled artisans. We'll restore whatever type of finish was originally on the piece, or we can apply a new one to mix things up a bit if that's what you would prefer.
Whether you recently acquired an old family heirloom in need of some loving care or you want to restore the original shine to your bridal set, we have the skill and experience to produce the beautiful results you're looking for. While refinishing jobs can involve a wide variety of special considerations and additional steps, the general process we follow for each piece is outlined below.
• The first step in any refinishing job is to identify the original texture used on the piece so that we can match it.
• Before applying a new finish, we'll clean the piece thoroughly to ensure that there is no other damage that needs to be addressed and to make it easier to apply the finish properly.
• We'll then add the finish that was originally present or an alternate one that you specify.
• Finally, we'll re-plate the piece if necessary, and polish it to restore it to brand new condition.
There are several types of finishes generally used on jewelry, and we can restore any of them. The most common of these include a high polish, brushed, hammered, wire brushed, and sandblasted. Even if you're not sure which type of finish was used on your piece to begin with, we can figure it out for you and restore it to its original appearance.
We can also change the type of finish on a piece, whether the original one is worn down or not. If you're looking to create a different aesthetic on a piece or help make it better reflect your personal style, changing the finish can really help. And including contrasting finishes is a good way to add complexity to a design, which is something we can do for you as well.
Julie S. - Duvall, WA - November 2013 - GoogleI have used Joseph Jewelers twice - once to put a new sapphire in my wedding ring and once to create two new rings. All the work was completely custom. I loved working with Joseph - he is so easy going and focused on my end goal at the same time. The value for what he provides can't be beat. I will definitely go back to Joseph for future jewelry purchases. He can do anything under the sun and I trust him to create beautiful jewelry. Oh, and the last purchase I made came in earlier than promised. LOVE!
