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.
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.
I received a Victorian bracelet with five stones from my grandmother. The bracelet was set in gold and a bit more formal than I would wear. It was quite a sentimental piece, as it came from my grandma. Included with the bracelet was the dated note bequeathing the bracelet to me, I have to laugh as it was written on a bank deposit slip from a bank in Texas. I wanted the stones set in a ring that I could wear daily. I worked with Tony to choose a ring design, he was amazing to work with and I really appreciated the time he took to listen to the importance of the piece of jewelry and the reason I ended up choosing the ring design I did; his listening meant a lot as my grandma had recently passed. I was able to see where the jewelry is designed and built. Tony, the designers, the artists and the entire team at Joseph Jewelry were a pleasure to work with. I am so thrilled to wear my ring and love being able to show it off, including the engraving of the date that the original bracelet was bequeathed to me. I appreciate the time and care they took in making me feel like the most important customer. The craftsmanship is impeccable and I highly recommend Joseph Jewelry.
