How long does it take on average to replace a stone on my jewelry?
Many companies focus on quick replacement while others have a standard turnaround time of 4-8 weeks on everything. We find the most important factor is quality, well matched replacement stones. Most stones can be replaced in 1-2 weeks. Color gems that require matching such as emerald, sapphire, ruby and other gems are sent to vendors to match the size, color and quality first and then the work is done. Replacements involving matching generally take 3-4 weeks to ensure the best match.
Will my ring look as before after replacing a stone?
The replacement of any gem should not affect the look and design of the ring. This is true even if prongs or settings have to be replaced. If the look of your jewelry will be altered, we will inform you of your options and keep you driving the decision bus.
Can I lose the stone again after replacing it?
It depends on how you take care of your jewelry. The main reasons why jewelry stones are lost is accidental damage due to everyday wear and intense shocks.
