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.
Anna S. - Sammamish, WA - June 2017 - YelpMy 25th anniversary ring is a DREAM REALIZED! After quite extensive research I decided on Joseph's Jewelry to put my own design details into making a beautiful , platinum set, diamond halo ring, and Joseph's certainly didn't disappoint. I had very specific requirements about design and center stone, and Anthony, Lex and rest of the team at Joseph's all were wonderful incorporating mine wishes, . It took few months, and few trips from Normandy Park, but I was happy to drive up to Bellevue. This place is a gem, professional, competent and respectful service, delivered before promised time. They say all good things come to those who wait.... true, but this is exception to that rule: do not wait, if you looking for magnificent product, I only spend time writing reviews when some things are TRULY excellent,or REALLY bad, and JOSEPH'S proved to be the first. I love mine new ring,thank you Joseph's.
