Ring in the New Year with the Best Jewelry Repair Tucson Has to Offer
Happy New Year! The ball has dropped, and we find ourselves in 2018, ready to start anew. You have heard the phrase New Year, New You, right? Well what about those pieces of jewelry you have had for a while? Are they ready for another long year of living? If not, you may be looking to find a place to get your jewelry repaired. Here is what you need to consider and know about jewelry repair!
Jewelers can repair a wide array of things. Some examples are ring sizing, chain repairs, clasp or stone replacements, polishing, cleanings, and more. For watches, they can repair the tiny gears and mechanisms that keep the timepiece ticking.
When it comes to rings, engagement rings for instance, there are a few parts that may need repair: the band, the setting, and/or the stone.
Most rings suffer from scratches. Anything worn regularly, especially on the hands, has a chance to bump up against something, no matter how careful we are. It is common but more importantly it is usually fixable!
Simple wear and tear can often be polished away, while deeper scratches may need more work. The metal used in the piece will determine that.
If the ring’s band is made of a softer metal, gold of a higher karat for example, there is more of a chance of warping. If this is the case then you will want to keep an eye on the setting.
The setting is perhaps the most frequently damaged part of the ring. The more detailed the setting, the more at risk it is to be damaged. Having your ring looked at and the setting tightened, or entirely replaced if necessary, is one of those things best done before it is too late. If the setting fails, the stone may go with it!
Repairs for stones can be anything from polish to complete replacement. Diamonds are one of the hardest known substances, but that doesn’t mean they are invincible! They can still suffer scratches or chips. Small chips or scratches can usually be fixed by a professional.
