  1. How you could be unintentionally killing your jewelry...

    Like a new car, new jewelry eventually requires maintenance. This isn't a suggestion, it's a fact. When you love your jewelry, you wear it (as you should). When you wear it, you damage it. This fact is not so much about quality craftsmanship as it is about wear and tear. When you drive thousands of miles on your car, it is not the car's fault the tires need to be replaced. The same concept can (and should) be applied to jewelry. Under elements of normal wear and tear your metals should last you the following number of years without requiring prong or shank maintenance. Yellow Gold - 5 Years White Gold - 8 Years Platinum - 20 Years This is under normal wear and tear. Below, I have created a list of activities that unintentionally kills jewelry.

  2. New Head vs. Retips

    Most jewelers suggest that you bring your jewelry in every 6 months to be checked: cleaned, tightened up - like a spa treatment for your jewelry. However, sometimes when a ring is brought in for inspection it may be recommended that the item needs work done to it to help preserve the item. For example, on a ring we doretips.What is a retip?:building up and "repairing" the pegs of metal holding the diamond (the prongs). The prongsstart to show wear and retippingthem will bring the ring back to safe and stable condition. Retipping is something that will generally last for six months to a year before more wear begins to occur again. An alternative to retipping is putting on anew head. What is a new head?: A ...

  4. How is a Ring Made?

    How is a ring made? Most people assume jewelry is made in a factory like a car, computer, or toaster. They picture an assembly line with ultra modern robots and supervisors making sure the machines are doing all the work as required. In short, they see modern methods on an ancient industry. Although technology has made many things possible in jewelry manufacture, it has not replaced the methods of manufacture that have been practiced for generations. So...how is a ring made? Design The first step, like many others, starts with a concept insomeone's head. Usually it is first expressed as a drawing just like you see in clothing fashion or it is "drawn" in a computer assisted design program (C.A.D for short).
