Even when a rousing game of frisbee leads to a lost diamond and a cut shank, it can still be restored.
Charlene brought in a beloved ring that needed some work! It originally belonged to her great Aunt, and when Charlene inherited it, she immediately started wearing it. Over time, the shank and prongs thinned and wore down, which meant one sudden move during a game of frisbee sent a diamond flying out. And because she didn’t get it resized before she started wearing it, the ring also had to be cut off. Then there it sat, in a drawer for years, while they put two kids through college…
Flash forward to recently when she decided it was time to fix it up and wear it again! After discussing what was needed structurally, she wanted something a little different than another diamond to replace the missing one. Eventually we showed her a selection of Spinel stones, and she loved the color of a new blue/grey one! We replaced the shank with a new, thicker piece of gold and sized it to fit, then we removed the diamond that was in the center, moved it to the end where the missing one had fallen out, and rebuilt the prongs to secure it. Finally, we put the new Spinel in the middle, which gave it a whole new look with a nice pop of color! When it was done, the ring looked brand new again!
If you have a meaningful piece sitting in a drawer, take it out and bring it to Jack Lewis! We'll restore it and keep it going for years to come. We know what it means to you. Don't give up on it just yet.
