We understand that every piece of jewel you own holds a certain amount of sentiment with it, especially ones associated with the wedding day. They often get damaged, may need resizing, or maybe, the gemstone falls off. Luckily, wedding ring repairs are easy to get done, so there is no need to fret so much about it.

3 Most Common Types of Wedding Ring Issues With Repairs

Here are the top 5 most common ring issues that need fixing.

Ring Size

It is the most common repair, and every jewel maker/repair person will vouch for it. The work is as easy as the name says, the experts determine what size finger you want to make the ring for, and the ring is fit to that exact size.

Repair:

If, by any chance, there is a need to get resizing done, you can visit us any moment, and we will fix that up for you. Here’s how we do it.

  • A cut is made on the small opening of the shank.
  • Step 2 determines whether you are going for a size up or down.
  • In case of up, the shank is spread open to the right size, and then the appropriate ounce of metal is added and fixed.
  • In case of down, the expert removes the required amount of metal and then restores the metal together.

Repairing Loose Gemstone

It is not new for a gemstone to become loose with time and start spinning within the boundary. It is second to the most common wedding ring repairs.

Repair:

Sometimes it’s the prongs that go loose; therefore, in such a case scenario, tightening works well. Tools are available to bend the metal back to its original position. This makes sure that the gemstone sits properly.

Broken Shank Repair

One of the many reasons why gold, platinum, or silver metals are used in jewelry is it is hard to break. However, your jewelry does undergo the entire wear and tear process.

Over time the stress it goes through with pressure can result in a fracture. It’s hard to spot it since there is less visual evidence until it happens.

Repair:

The repair is mostly like that of resizing a ring. Look back to the sizing details we have discussed above. Shank repair is the same as sizing; however, the first step of cutting is already done.

What the repair person does is to; form the ring back into a “round” (according to the correct size) and then use soldering tools to flow the metal together.

The final step is shaping and forming the shank and polishing it up to make it look as good as new.
