DIAMOND RECUTTING AND REPAIR
Now, it is a common routine for diamonds to be sent to cutters for repolishing. Usually, the purpose of a repolishing job is to touch up a second-hand diamond or to repair a chipped diamond. The carat weight lost in such repair jobs are typically very small (0.02-0.10 carats) and depends on the nature of the damage.
If your damage is visible and distracts from the beauty of the stone, and if the stone is worth getting repaired, then by all means, get it done.
Having chips or breaks in your stone does one horrible thing to your Diamond if left untreated… They make your Diamond weaker and more prone to chipping or breaking. It’s wise to have the process done if possible.
Also, removing chips or breaks from a Diamond generally makes the stone more valuable as well. This depends on how much Carat Weight is lost of course. But damages do affect the Clarity and Value
Some people have their Diamonds recut even if they aren’t chipped or broken. Some get them recut to Ideal Standards if the Diamond is cut poorly (cut too shallow or deep). This removes Carat Weight but greatly enhances the beauty, sparkle, and fire in the Diamond.
Some people also have Old Mine Cut Diamonds, or Old European Cut Diamonds recut into the Modern Brilliant Cut Diamond.
We will take in your diamond and have our Master cutter provide a full evaluation and estimate for you. Then, once you approve everything, we will have the work done.
Why Appraisals are So Important
Since jewelry insurance premiums (the amount you pay annually to maintain your coverage) are typically based on the value of the jewelry, what would happen if that value was incorrect?
If your ring’s value was overinflated, you could spend more than necessary to insure your piece. Or, the reverse could mean you’re underinsured and may incur additional out-of-pocket expenses to repair or replace jewelry that becomes damaged or lost. Insuring your jewelry for its current retail replacement value is vital to repair or replacement.
You're not required to insure your ring like you are with your car. So if you're going to make the (smart) choice to invest time and money into ring insurance, make sure it's for the right amount by getting a quality appraisal.
R.W. Diamond Broker offers excellent appraisals done by Graduate Gemologists (G.G.), which is long regarded as the jewelry industry’s most prestigious academic credential. Graduates from the Gemological Institute of America (GIA) are awarded this degree after completing extensive required courses, laboratory training, and exams. This world-renowned program provides jewelry appraisers with the science and technical knowledge needed to deal in the entire spectrum of diamonds and colored stones.
Professional jewelry appraisals include the following:
A detailed description of each item
Enlarged digital photograph of each item printed on the document
Metal content determination
Gemstone identification, grading, measurement, and weight calculation/estimation
Verification of gemological laboratory reports whenever possible
Fully researched valuation at the appropriate market level
Identification of designer or manufacturer whenever possible
A proper appraisal takes time. They cannot be done while you wait.
