Before & After Series
A Half Shank Needed to Size a White Gold Ring
On this edition of the Before & After Series, we have a beautiful 14k White Gold Ring with a 9ct Oval Blue Zircon and Diamonds Ring. This ring that had to be resized up a whole three and a half sizes!
For a sizing of this scale, the standard methods would not work, so what is known as a half shank was performed.
For this ring repair, we had to:
- Remove the back half of the shank
- Replace the new shank to accommodate the sizing up
- Laser weld the ring parts together
- Finish with a rhodium clean and polish
