Retipping Prongs On Rings

Jewellery Repair: Claw Retipping

Let’s talk jewellery repair and retipping the claws of your rings. You have been married now for 20 years. Which means, you have been wearing those beautiful Diamond rings for 20 years.

What do you do with your hands on a day to day basis? Wash the dishes? Gardening? Look after kids? Open the car door? Shopping?

You may not realise it, but your hands go through A LOT every single day. Which means your rings do too. Metal, as you know wears over time. So, you imagine what your rings may through on a day to day basis and think about how that will wear the metal on your rings. If the metal wears away too much around the gemstones in your rings, then they will fall out. And you don’t want to lose a beautiful stone that holds so many memories for you!


What do you need to look out for?

Are the claws around your gemstones sharp? Do they catch on your clothes? If so, you’re at risk of catching one which could cause it to snap off.


How can I prevent losing my gemstone?

Bring your jewellery into our jewellery boutique in Bakewell, Derbyshire for a complimentary clean and inspection. We can give your jewellery a professional clean and look at the amount of metal around your gemstone and advise whether the claws will need retipping or not.


How do we ‘retip’ claws?

Our goldsmith carefully builds up the metal around them to ensure there is enough there and improve the overall look of your ring. We can make your rings look brand new!



Regular maintenance of your jewellery can save you the large financial outlay of replacing a lost diamond and not to mention the impossible task of replacing an heirloom.
