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.
Joe P. - Fall River, MA - July 2014 - YelpMy fiance and I are not the kind of people who follow the norm. We are constantly seeking unique items for our home and even our attire. She is a professional artist and I am an historian and professional mariner having spent a good amount of time in the tall ship community. When we decided to marry we began searching for unique rings that would fit our style and personalities. In our search we discovered Mokume Gane and focused our search for the best artisan of that style. We found many who made mokume, but we were taken by the work that Joseph Jewelry showed on their site. I initiated a conversation with Joseph online through their custom design page. Everyone I dealt with was fantastic, understanding and highly professional. The design process went smoothly with tremendous communication throughout. When the rings arrived I was floored by their beauty and quality. Heather's engagement ring is tremendous, set with a stunning orange sapphire and two high quality diamonds. The mokume gane bands are breathtaking and I cannot wait to wear mine. It can sometimes be a bit unnerving to make such high dollar, custom purchases long distance, but I would not hesitate to recommend Joseph Jewelry to anyone and I know that I will turn to them again for those special jewelry purchases in the future.
