COMMON JEWELRY PROBLEMS THAT REQUIRE JEWELRY REPAIR
Jewelry Problems that Require Repair
For many people, jewelry is one of their most treasured items. For that reason, they will go through great lengths to maintain the quality of the jewelry. After time, all jewelry will often require some sort of repair. Our team at Thom Duma Fine Jewelers knows how much your jewelry means to you and created a guide to illustrate common problems that require repairs.
Over time, fingers change size due to weight gain or loss, aging, health conditions, and more. As a result, your rings may no longer fit as they once did when you first received them. If your ring is too loose, it could fall off and get lost. If it's too tight, it will be uncomfortable to wear. Resizing a ring is a common repair that our jewelers at Thom Duma Fine Jewelers can do quickly and efficiently.
Re-tipping or Replacing Prongs
The prongs of your jewelry are responsible for holding diamonds and gemstones securely in place. Over time, the prongs can become worn down or even break, which could cause the stone to fall out. Re-tipping or replacing prongs is a repair that our jewelers can do to ensure your piece stays in good condition.
Replace a Stone
The dazzling stones of your engagement ring, necklace, or earrings are the main focal point of the piece. If the stone becomes damaged, cracked, or breaks, then it will need to be replaced. Further, a stone that grows loose over time will eventually fall out. If this happens, it's important to see a jeweler as soon as possible so they can replace the stone.
Replacing Chain or Clasps
The chain or clasp of your necklace or bracelet is what keeps the piece together and secures it making it the astonishing piece it was crafted to be. Over time, these pieces can become worn down from continuous wear and eventually may break. Making sure your chain or clasp is in good condition is important to the longevity of your piece.
Changing Earring Posts
If you have noticed that your skin has become irritated or you've developed a rash around your ears after wearing your jewelry, it may be time to change the posts of your earrings. The posts secure the earring piercing to your ear. If you have allergies, they can irritate your skin. Additionally, over time the posts on your earrings can become bent or broken, which will cause them to not lay flush against your ear.
