Common Jewelry Problems that Require Jewelry Repair
Jewelry Problems that Require Repairs
Jewelry is often cherished and passed down from generation to generation, or simply collected by one for its luxurious charm. Even the most well-made pieces can experience problems over time and need repairs. Whether your jewelry is tarnished and needs replenishing or needs parts replaced, our team at Rumanoff's Fine Jewelry in Hamden, Connecticut are here to help you prolong the life of your fine jewelry pieces.
One of the most common problems we see in jewelry is a ring that does not fit quite correctly. A loose ring can cause discomfort, or even fall off and get lost. A ring that is too tight can be just as problematic, cutting off circulation to your finger and making it difficult to remove. If your ring needs to be resized, our experts will make the necessary adjustments so that it fits perfectly.
Re-tipping or Replacing Prongs
The prongs on a ring are what keep the stone in place and create the foundation for the entire ring. Over time, these prongs can break or warp, making the stone more susceptible to falling out. If you notice that the prongs on your ring are looking worn, it's important to bring it in for repair as soon as possible. Depending on the severity, we may be able to simply re-tip the prongs or replace them entirely.
Replace a Stone
If a stone falls out of your jewelry, it's important to bring it in for repair as soon as possible. Losing a stone can mean losing the structural integrity of the piece. It's important that an expert assess the damage and determine whether the stone can be reset or if a new one is needed. Depending on the type of stone, it may be able to simply set it back in place. If the stone is cracked or chipped, however, it will need to be replaced.
Replacing Chain or Clasps
Another common repair we see is a broken or damaged chain. This can happen after years of wear. If your necklace or bracelet will not stay clasped, it's likely time to take it to a trusted jeweler like Rumanoff’s Fine Jewelry. Depending on the severity, our team of jewelry experts may be able to simply repair the clasp or replace it entirely. In some cases, the entire chain may need to be replaced.
Changing Earring Posts
If you have had your earrings for a while, it's not uncommon for the posts to become bent or worn down and need to be replaced. When this happens, your earrings may become loose and fall out, or they may not be able to penetrate the earlobe at all, defeating the purpose of the earring. Posts can sometimes get broken as well, which will then require a professional hand to repair the items.
