Has anyone ever had a piece of jewellery altered? DP bought me a ring a couple of years ago but the setting that the stone is in is really chunky and means that I catch it on everything and so now am too scared to wear it. I've love to have the stone shrunk slightly and so that the setting is in line with the band and not above it. Is this possible?
I can't really visualise what you are describing but I recently had an alteration to an antique ring where the central diamond stood proud of its setting and had become loose. In order to recycle the existing platinum claws, they 'dropped' the diamond a few mms deeper into its setting, and reclawed it using the existing platinum. It now sits flush with the top of the setting. So it's def not a stupid request! I'd take it in and ask for a quote.
