Precious Stone Replacement
Precious stone replacement, as the term suggests, is the replacement of precious stones such as sapphires, diamonds, emeralds, and rubies (and sometimes semi-precious stones such as alexenderite, aquamarine, opal, tourmaline, topaz, citrine, black onyx, amethyst, star sapphire, and moonstone) that might have fallen off a ring, a necklace, a pendant, earrings, a bracelet, or any other jewelry piece. The replacement involves the clearing of the previous seat of the precious stone that is missing and the installation of the same type of precious stone that is of the same color, size, and clarity as the missing stone. The replacement process is called setting and it is best done by a professional like Lucio's Gold in Toronto since we are professionals and have the necessary training, experience, tools, and supplies and because this is more convenient.
Precious stone replacement is important because it is cheaper than buying a new jewelry piece, especially in situations where the precious stones are set on precious metals such as gold, silver, and titanium. Another advantage of replacement is the fact that most people get emotionally attached to their jewelry since they often have stories behind them and this makes losing them out of the question. Precious stone replacement is important because it ensures that your Greater Toronto Area insurance premiums do not go up if you had insured your jewels. The premiums would go up if the insurance company was to think that you are careless since Toronto insurance is often against theft.
Why should Precious Stone Replacement be done by a Jeweler?
The precious stone replacement is done by jewelers or gemologists who match up precious stones for clarity, color, size, and cut. The jewelers or gemologists will do the setting. This could be channel setting, pave setting, grain setting, tension/part tension setting, illusion setting, rub over setting, or traditional claw setting. You will have the final say before the setting. Lucio's Gold jewelers and gemologists have 3D CAD (computer aided design) software that allow for rendering so that you can see what the final product will look like. To do precious stone replacement, begin by coming to our Toronto Jewelry store which is located at 7800 Woodbine which is minutes away from the 407 and conveniently located in the middle of the Greater Toronto Area or you may visit our downtown Toronto store where our professionals may restore your previous stones.
