Guide To Engagement Ring Repair

Guide To Engagement Ring Repair

Your engagement ring is more than just a piece of jewellery; it’s a symbol of love and commitment that deserves the utmost care. Over time, daily wear and tear can take its toll on the original sparkle and a repair may be needed. In this article we delve into the art of engagement ring repair, from common issues like loose stones and scratches to more complex repairs like resizing and prong re-tipping, we’ll cover it all.

Assessing the ring

The first step is to assess the ring and identify any issues. Are there visible scratches on the band? Are any stones loose or missing? Is the ring too tight or loose? Knowing the extent of the damage will help to identify the best route for repair.

Clean and polish

Before diving into repairs, a thorough clean and polish may be recommended. Professional cleaning can restore the ring’s brilliance and remove any dirt or residue that may obscure its beauty. This process can also help to spot any hidden issues that may need attention.

Ring resizing

The most common ‘repair’ for engagement rings is resizing. Whether it’s a little too tight or a tad loose, resizing ensures your ring sits perfectly on your finger. This process involves adding or removing metal from the band and potentially adding a stack to get the perfect fit.

Stone replacement

Loose or missing stones can be a common issue with engagement rings. Whether a diamond has fallen out or a coloured stone has become damaged, the stone may need to be replaced or set back into the ring. If a stone is lost, we can find a replacement that closely resembles the original, ensuring a seamless repair.

Re-tipping and repairing prongs

Over time the prongs and settings holding your precious gemstones in place can weaken. If not fixed, this could lead to stones becoming loose or even falling out. It may be necessary to re-tighten the prong or rebuild it to ensure your stone is secure.
