Jewellery Stone Replacement Services at GMG JewellersHere at GMG Jewellers, we understand better than most what sort of irritation it is when your engagement ring’s prongs get loose and the centre stone falls out. We understand the heartbreak of losing jewels from your favourite fashion ring, as well as the desire to change out jewels for new ones. To that end, GMG Jewellers has taken time to develop the skill set necessary to reset and replace the jewels in our customers’ pieces. Whether it’s a simple fix or it requires more complex work, you can visit our showroom nearly any day of the week and have your treasures made good as new!
The Whys and Hows of Stone ReplacementThe easiest method of replacing a jewel that’s become separated from its ring is to simply place it back in its setting. When it comes to prongs, the answer is usually simple: Replace the stone and tighten the prongs again. However, if the stone came loose because the prongs are damaged, it’ll require replacing the prongs first, which is a different repair process that we at GMG Jewellers also perform! If, however, your jewellery has an exotic setting such as channel- or invisible setting, it requires an expert touch, since the stones are specifically cut to fit the setting. The process requires an artist’s eye and a professional’s expertise to properly reset a jewel (particularly a substituted jewel) in the jewellery. Fortunately, we can guarantee that our team of experts can replace the stones in solitaires, three-stone rings, tension settings, channel settings, bezel settings or pave!
Alternatively, some of the customers who visit GMG Jewellers are looking for a stone replacement of a jewel that already exists in their piece. Occasionally this means sizing up a diamond in an engagement ring or selecting a new gemstone for a piece of fashion jewellery. In this case, many of the same policies that go into custom jewellery design come into play: Our team will discuss your preferred jewel, its dimensions, carat weight, and shape. It may be impossible to fit a 5-carat heart-cut diamond, for example, in an engagement ring whose chevron prongs are made to hold a 1-carat princess-cut diamond. Nevertheless, we take your stone replacement needs seriously, and we strive to ensure that you leave satisfied.
