Prong Repair FAQ

Prongs are the tiny metal claws or beads on your jewelry piece that hold the gemstone securely in place of its setting. In addition to holding the gemstones in place, prongs do play an aesthetic role in the piece, coming in different sizes, shapes and styles.

Repairing your damaged prongs is important because these tiny claws/prongss serve as the primary safeguard for your jewelry’s valuable gemstones.

Often overlooked, prongs play a crucial role in ensuring that your gems remain securely nestled within their settings. Without properly functioning prongs, your gemstones can become loose or even fall out, potentially leading to the loss or damage of your precious stones.

Recognizing the need for prong repairs is relatively straightforward if you know what to look for. Common signs that your prongs may require repair include:

Visible Damage: Inspect your prongs carefully for any visible signs of damage, such as bends, breaks, thinning or missing pieces. These can compromise the prongs’ ability to hold your gemstones securely.

Gemstone Movement: If you notice that your gemstones are shifting or seem loose within their settings, it’s a clear sign that the prongs may not be doing their job effectively.

Snagging or Catching: When prongs become damaged, they can develop sharp edges that may snag on clothing or other materials. If you feel any catching or snagging when wearing your jewelry, it’s a sign that prong repair is needed.

It’s important to regularly inspect your jewelry, especially if the piece in question is worn regularly. This proactive approach allows you to detect and address any issues before they escalate into significant problems, such as the need for prong repairs. While personal inspections are valuable, consulting with a professional jeweler is equally important in ensuring the longevity and beauty of your cherished pieces.
