Yellow and white gold engagement rings and wedding rings in Brisbane
Resizing engagement and wedding rings in Brisbane, is one of the most common jobs we perform in our jewellery workshop on a daily basis. Provided the alloy is of a high quality and the ring has been manufactured correctly, the ring can be resized up or down a few sizes depending on the design and how many diamonds if any are set into the band.
Antique and heirloom rings
A visual inspection is required with this type of jewellery because often the ring, being an antique has had work done on it over its long life which can impact on the amount it can be resized. A visual inspection by a jeweller is recommended.
Platinum engagement rings and wedding rings in Brisbane
The process is slightly different when resizing a platinum ring. If it is a platinum ring that has been handmade then ideally we will fuse the ring together, however this is only if it is a ring manufactured by Ashley Douglas. If the ring has been made by another jeweller we will use a hard platinum solder where possible. Again, this comes down to the quality of alloy. We cannot risk melting or damaging a ring we haven’t made, because we don’t know the quality of the platinum used.
If the platinum engagement ring has diamonds set into the band then a wet sand bath or heat protective gel is used to protect the gemstones as platinum requires an incredible amount of heat to fuse or solder and diamonds and gemstones can be damaged or burnt in the process.
