Gemstone Repair and Polishing
The gemstones in your rings or other pieces of fine jewelry are likely the most eye-catching elements included, and maintaining their sparkle is vital to ensuring the enduring beauty of the piece. But just like anything else, they can become damaged, scratched, or broken over time due to an accident or simply normal wear and tear.
In order to keep your piece looking like new, Lyght Jewelers offers comprehensive stone repair and polishing services. The gemstones in rings in particular are especially vulnerable to damage, as your hands are constantly coming into contact with all kinds of materials that could potentially cause damage, ie car doors, dishes (ceramics), and metals to name a view.
Whether you need a small chip in your stone repaired, or you want to take an older stone and have it recut to create a more modern and brilliant look, our expert Master Bench Jewelers are up to the task. We'll take all unique elements of your piece into account when working on it. The process we follow for all of these types of jobs is as follows.
• First, we'll assess your gemstones under our microscope connected to an HDTV to determine if there was material lost. Then access the damage and determine how best to go about restoring the stone's original appearance.
• Next, our gem cutter will resurface or recut the damaged area by shaving away layers from the gem evenly from every angle.
• Once the proper shape is achieved and all signs of damage have been re mediated, we re-polish the stone so it sparkles like new.
