JEWELLERY MOUNTING AND RE-TIPPING

Jewellery Mounting and Retipping

WHY DO I NEED TO REMOUNT MY GEMSTONES?

The process of remounting jewellery refers to the idea of taking jewels from one piece of jewellery and putting them into a different one. While it’s a fairly simple idea, there’s many different reasons why men and women chose to have the stones in their pieces remounted. One of the most popular reasons is taste.In many cases, a person may appreciate the gems used in a piece of jewellery while finding its overall presentation dated, tacky, or unstylish. Here at GMG Jewellers, we can take your gems from their previous setting and put them in either a designer setting or a custom piece of jewellery. The options in this case are diverse and often symbolically very beautiful. Consider the case of taking some of grandma’s old jewellery and using its stones to build a new engagement ring. That’s an option available in this case!

Alternatively, remounting can act as a form of repair. If you have a beloved piece of jewellery that’s suffered too much damage to be safely repaired or the repair would be prohibitively expensive, you may prefer resetting the jewellery’s gems in a new piece. If you have a jewellery box that’s filled with broken pieces, it can be a truly inspired idea to utilize all of their gems in a gleaming new piece.

THE JEWELLERY RETIPPING PROCESS

Retipping is another form of repair that’s somewhat related to jewellery mounting: Over time, prongs in a piece of jewellery will become damaged or loose. Once prongs reach this state, it’s a red flag, since your gemstones can fall out and get lost. To avoid that fate, it’s important to bring your jewellery in to have the prongs maintained.

Sometimes, a loose stone can simply be the result of a prong being bent or crooked. If that’s the case, a repair expert can usually bend it back into place with no problem. However, if a prong has been bent too often, or the metal is flattened or cracked, it’ll be necessary to retip the jewellery. This process entails “rebuilding” the prong with precious metals. During retipping, the jeweler will affix a metal bead over the top of the broken prong. Once the bead is permanently fixed, this new prong will hold your stone tightly. If your prong is too far gone, it’s possible for our designers to rebuild the head of your piece!
