I had an excellent experience shopping for an anniversary gift here. I had stopped by just to browse and felt very comfortable and well taken care of. I had left and shopped around but came back because of the options and reasonably priced items compared to others. I had gotten an 18kt diamond cut necklace for me and my lady and can’t stop admiring them! They had even gave me tips on how to keep them clean and they offered to clean them at the store for free as well. Awesome experience and will definitely come back.

Prong Retipping FAQs

Prong retipping refers to the process whereby the prongs on your jewelry that secure your gemstones are rebuilt or repaired. While prong retipping may be mainly done to restore the security of cradled gemstones, the process itself does help restore the original look of a piece.

Please note that prong retipping is a proactive service – it’s much more affordable to retip broken prongs than it is to replace your precious gemstones, should they fall out.

As long as your jewelry has gemstones secured in a setting with prongs, it can be retipped. This includes pieces such as rings, earrings, pendants, and bracelets.

How often prongs should be retipped really depends on the wear and tear of the prongs in question. If your prongs are damaged and you notice an insecure grip on your stones, it’s imperative that you bring your piece in for repair as soon as possible, otherwise you risk the stone falling out.

With this in mind, pieces that are worn every day typically need to be retipped more often than pieces that are worn for special occasions. This, of course, is due to the wear and tear that the jewelry would experience through daily use.

For each precious piece you have, we recommend that you have it periodically inspected to ensure its integrity is intact. As part of our professional cleaning services, we not only polish and clean your jewelry, but also inspect it for any outstanding repairs that need to be done.

The amount of time it takes to retip a piece’s prongs depends on the setting’s complexity and the number of actual prongs that need work. That said, it’s best to get in contact with us to get an accurate estimate of the lead time repairing your piece would take.
