This Week: A Gold Ring With a Purple Stone that Fell Out
Welcome back to the Weekly Before & After blog! This week we focus on a 10k gold ring that came in where the purple stone fell out. At MJR, we are accustomed to seeing these kinds of ring repairs with loose stones, oftentimes the stones are missing completely. Let's break down how we handled this particular case.
If you’re not too familiar with jewelry repair, there were a couple of things that needed to be done here to properly repair this ring.
We had to:
-Rebuild the four ‘V’ prongs
-Reshape the ring (Straighten the Shank in industry terms)
-Set the stone properly
-Finish the repair with a nice clean and polish
As you can see, the result was very easy on the eye. 😊
Every ring has its own unique qualities based on its design, metal type, and gemstones. As such each repair may require a different type of service.
Thankfully, here at our MJR facilities, we have no lack of talented Master Jewelers on hand to make sure we can perform the best possible ring repair service for you.
