I have a ring (much like this, except not pink for crying out loud) with a cracked … um, “stone” I guess it’d be called. Inset into the stone is an emblem, the stone has a hole through it, and the dang stone has cracked several times.
The first time it broke I took it back to the place from whence I bought it, the guy sent it in and presto, good as new. Now, many years later, that guy is gone and I don’t know to whom it was sent.
Any jeweler types know if this kind of thing can be fixed? Is it some kind of manufactured sapphire or just blue glass? Would a local jeweler be likely to have the equipment to make an oval blue stone thing with a hole in the center?
The two jewelers I’ve consulted took one look and said “No, sorry. Next.” Not very talkative, so I didn’t get an explanation of why not (not that they owed me an explanation)
I’ve tried contacting the few online companies that carry the one linked above, but they’ve not responded, and I’m not in a position to drop another $500+ on a ring for myself.
That was kind of rambling, sorry. I’ll try again -
Me broke ring. Someone fix?
