This is a customer’s ring inherited from her
Grandmother. It is from the 1890s and was brought in to be
cleaned. We told her about the prongs being worn. The new prongs
will protect this gorgeous ring for years (see prongs on the picture
to the left)!
This is a pair of black opal and druzy
earrings. The stones are very sensitive to heat but our jeweler was

diamond was ready to fall out! We removed the stone and weighed it

the appraised value of the ring was told to the customer, she was
more than happy to rebuild her ring.
