Ring Shank Repair
Over time, ring shanks, or ‘bands’ will wear. If softer metals are used (like 18 karat) or if more than one ring is worn against one another, the wear will occur more quickly. If your rings are exposed to chemicals, over time, this can be a contributor as well. We will assess the condition of your shank and make recommendations based on your lifestyle – either to thicken your current shank, to replace it halfway, or replace entirely.
Ring Shank Special Fitting
Does your ring rotate around your finger? It could be that your ring is top-heavy, or just that it fits differently from when you received or purchased it. This can make your prongs wear very quickly and put precious stones at risk for breakage or being lost altogether. We can add sizing beads to inside of the shank to stabilize it or completely re-shank with an adjustable shank. Either way, we will carefully assess your needs and make the best, most cost-effective recommendation.

Today, many white gold pieces (including rings and pendants primarily) are plated with a metal called Rhodium. Rhodium is a metal found in the platinum family. Because white gold is still .585 % gold (i.e. yellow), different castings mixed with varying other alloys (nickel primarily), it’s color can sometimes have yellowish undertones. Manufacturers often apply Rhodium to coat pieces to whiten their appearance. This, however, will wear with time (depending on a number of factors). Our goldsmith applies a proper coating level that ensures the plating will last as long as possible. *Express same-day service available upon request!
