When a gemstone or diamond is claw set, the claws are more exposed to everyday wear and tear, as they are set over the stone. Long term wear can result in the claw wearing and sometimes breaking off, which will highly increase the possibility of losing a stone. Having the claws checked on a regular basis is a great way to maintain your jewellery and ensure that your gemstones stay firmly where they belong.
The re-tipping process requires a high level of skill and accuracy to ensure favourable results. If the claw is worn, it can be built up to its original level. It is recommended that this be done to any other claws on the ring as the repair will be very noticeable. A broken claw will need to be replaced by filing it down and replacing it with a completely new claw. Executive Diamond services employ some of the most skilled goldsmiths in the industry and perform quality checks on all of our jewellery before it leaves any of our locations.
