Professional Jewelry Cleaning
POLISH TO BRIGHT FINISH
Using an ultrasonic cleansing bath to remove dust, oils, grease, and dirt from the jewelry, it is then buffed to a high polish, and then steam cleaned under high pressure to remove all excess materials and surface contaminants leaving a high luster to your jewelry.
Care is always given when polishing chains so that the links are not stressed and pulled apart. It takes an expert hand to thoroughly clean a chain to make it look like new. After soaking in the ultrasonic cleaner, the chain is polished using a mixture of compounds, buffing wheels, and hand polishing. The final step is to steam the chain for good measure, making sure it is completely free from dirt.
A finer compound and felt wheel is used to remove surface abrasions and remove any imperfections. The jewelry is then cleansed to remove any residual compounds and polished to give it that soft glow.
RHODIUM RING & REFINISH
A wonderful technique to brighten rings and give them a mirror like finish after the initial cleaning and polishing. Always recommended for two tone rings and plated rings.
SANDBLAST & REFINISH
Sandblasting is reserved for special pieces that require a more intensive cleaning to restore it brilliance. The process strips away layers of embedded dirt, oxidations, unwanted enamels, coatings, and any additions that were added over the years that may have faded the finish of the jewelry through time.
STONE WHEEL FINISH
treatment to jewelry that is prone to attracting dirt because of cracks and crevasses. The jewelry is meticulously cleaned and treated to an ultrasonic bath where any compounds and surface build up can be removed before the piece is treated to a buffing to bring out it’s natural sheen.
After the jewelry is cleaned it is then buffed with a special compound dipped abrasive wheel that leaves the familiar Florentine criss cross finish. Care is then taken not when polishing not undo the refinished surface, and a steam cleaning brings all the detail into sharp focus.
Often used to “re-black” school rings or any piece of jewelry that looks has a natural or chemical patina. The surface is stripped, cleaned, and then re-antiqued by hand. After this, the piece undergoes careful polishing by hand to make sure the right amount of patina is left and that the work enhances the art.
Loose Stone Setting
SET - RESET - REPLACE - TIGHTEN
Precious stones come loose. Prongs get damaged or broken. You want to replace a stone with another…we’re expert and do our work in house.
PRONG / CLAW SETTING
The prongs are tiny pieces of metal from the mount that the setter folds over the stone’s girdle securing the stone into place. This is the most common technique for solitary gems.
Setting consists in attaching a precious stone or gem to a metal mount by moving part of the metal. The techniques commonly used for settings include:
A tiny precious metal disk surrounds the stone. The sheet is folded over the entire perimeter of the stone securing it from the underside.

Custom Made Jewelry
UNIQUE AND ONE OF A KIND
At More Than Just Rings, our master jewelers create one-of-a-kind jewelry pieces daily. Any shape, size, or design. People come in every day asking for us to create something they have in mind to suit their needs and we go above and beyond to produce the finest work.
WE TAKE THE TIME TO LISTEN
Whatever your needs, we will walk you through the process going over all possible materials from precious metals to size and shape of gemstones to create that special piece of jewelry.
YOU HAVE AN IDEA...
We will sit with you and obtain all the information needed to begin rough layouts for your piece. Going over the details with you and to make sure everything you have envisioned is put into the design.
Once we have a finished design we then begin a prototype in wax. We place the gemstones on the model while we work to make sure everything is exactly as you desire.
We understand that money can often be a deciding factor which is why the models created are to ensure strength and longevity of the finished piece and to remove any unnecessary weights for when the item is cast to keep the final cost affordable.
When the jewelry is finished we also add a creation date appraisal from our certified jewelry appraisal expert. This detailed record will keep the jewelry valued at it’s highest possible market value and is extremely useful in the cases of insurance, damage and loss prevention.
KEEPING ITS VALUE
Something to consider is that jewelry does not depreciate over time. The market value on precious metals constantly fluctuates which is why you should consider having all of your jewelry appraised. Not having your valuable items properly appraised can be very costly if they are damaged or stolen. Bring in your jewelry to be appraised and we will create an in depth highly detailed record of your valuables that is accepted across the board by the insurance industry. This will insure your jewelry has been appraised at the highest value by an industry expert who will record every item of information to protect your investment.
