The amount of time it takes to replace a gemstone largely depends on sourcing the stone in question. If we have the stone of your choosing in our showroom, replacing it can be as quick as a day or two. If we need to source the stone, lead times depend on finding it and having it shipped to our studio in Dallas.

When replacing a gemstone on your fine jewelry, it’s important to consider both the visual and physical characteristics of the replacement stone.

Visually speaking, it’s crucial to ensure that the new stone’s appearance aligns harmoniously with the existing design, metal color of the piece, and any other gemstones present. This ensures that your piece will have a consistent and seamless look that doesn’t clash and looks visually appealing.

Furthermore, this aspect becomes particularly important when contemplating a significant change, such as replacing a red ruby with a blue sapphire. In such cases, the chosen stone’s colors, hues, and shades must complement, not clash with, the existing elements of the jewelry.

It’s also important to recognize that gemstones of the same type can differ quite a bit in appearance. Substituting a stone with another of the same kind doesn’t necessarily replicate the original look, given the natural variations in color depth and quality.

Whether you are looking to infuse new life into your piece with a completely different gemstone or seeking a similar replacement, the insight of an experienced professional is key to selecting a stone that enhances the beauty and character of your jewelry

In addition to visual appeal, the physical characteristics of the gemstone are equally significant, especially considering durability for daily wear.

Different stones have different hardness levels, as measured on the Mohs scale, which determines their ability to withstand scratches and chipping. For jewelry that is worn frequently, like rings or bracelets, opting for harder stones like diamonds, sapphires, or rubies can be a wise choice. These stones can endure the rigors of daily life without losing their luster or becoming easily damaged.

Conversely, softer stones such as opals, pearls, or amber, which rank lower on the Mohs scale, may be more susceptible to wear and damage. Therefore, they are often more suited for jewelry pieces intended for occasional wear, allowing them to retain their beauty and integrity over time.

It should also be noted, some stones do require special care to ensure proper maintenance. In light of these special gemstones, it’s always important to understand your stone’s properties so that it matches the intended use of the piece.
