If you'd like to "freshen" up your gem, Pavé can pull your gem from the setting and have it professionally polished by our in-house lapidary before resetting it. It's like having a brand new ring!
The cost of gem polishing depends on the type and size - there is also a fee to reset the gem once it's been polished. On occasion, a gem can be polished in the setting. Talk to your designer about your options.
All gems have a Moh's rating for how easily they can scratch. Diamond is at the top of the chart with a rating of 10 and every other gem ranks below the diamond. See how your gem ranks below...
|Gemstone||Mohs Rating (10 high)|
|Opal||6 - 6.5|
