Setting With Jewelry Designs
Of all the reasons to visit Jewelry Designs, seeing us for a stone replacement is possibly the most frustrating. With the exception of the person looking to upgrade, most are heartbroken at the thought of replacing a stone that was lost or damaged.
There are few things more distressing than looking down at your hand and seeing an empty setting. Your heart can skip a beat when you notice missing diamonds in an engagement ring or lost gemstones in a family heirloom.
In most cases, it is one of the secondary accent stones that requires replacing. This is most often caused when a ring or a bracelet is continually bumped until the prongs are worn out. During this time stones loosen as prongs become thin and are eroded. When this occurs, our jewelers will assess the wear or damage and prescribe the necessary jewelry repair needed on the item. Once they make their diagnosis, they will show you stones that match others in your piece and provide you with a repair and stone replacement quote.
