Rings Change Over Time

Go To IG Post     These palladium and moissanite rings came back to me for a little tune-up. Now that they are all sparkly clean, repolished, stones checked & tightened, they are ready to back to their lovely owners.

It's always interesting for me to see how the rings I make hold up with wear over time. Each person puts their own patina on. Even in the same metal some rings barely show any scratches and dings after a few years and others look like they were part of an adventurous and exciting expedition around the world. All metals will scratch over time when they are worn daily even with care. They come in contact with many surfaces, some of them harder than the metal, leaving little marks on the ring. A lovely patina will form over the years.

Softer metals like sterling silver will have deeper scratches than gold, palladium, or platinum rings. Finishes will change with wear, high polished rings will get a more satin look due to tiny scratches, while satin finishes will get a dull shine. Your ring will develop its own patina based on how you wear it. This patina gives character to your ring and tells a story of your life together. Over time, the ring will acquire a gorgeous patina of time where all the little marks will blend together and make the ring uniquely yours. All the marks are milestones in your relationship. I actually love the look of a well-worn ring.

But if you do like a clean slate, a professional jeweler can polish out light scratches from time to time and give your ring a deep cleaning. Many local mom-and-pop stores offer this service, no need to send it back to me. Just visit your trusted local small jewelry shop and treat your ring to a nice spa day. If your rings have any stones in them they should be checked for tightness every couple of months or years depending on what type of setting it is and how you wear it. Getting them tightened it certainly cheaper than needing a replacement.

Service and workmanship Exceeds!!!

Thank you, Konstanze! Once again, do you have exceeded our expectations! Our rings were returned as if they were new.
We already have the earring to match, now all we need is a matching necklace.
To be continued…. 😁

Made specially for me!

I first ordered the solitaire alexandrite ring, and a few days later I contacted Konstanze to add small alexandrites all around the band. She was kind enough to modify my order. There were a lot of questions from my side along the process and she even sent me pictures of the CAD model to have an idea of how the ring would look like. This is my third order from this shop and the product quality and customer service have always been great

Love it!

This is my 2nd piece from Konstanze and I love it! I hope to be able to buy more from her in the future! I love wearing silver, and it's hard to find someone put this level of live and design into pieces made from recycled silver. I'm super pleased with my new moissanite ring, it matches my style perfectly!

SPARKLY AND SO BEAUTIFUL

When I opened the box, the ring was more beautiful than I imagined. It highlights my sapphire engagement ring and provides a band of beautiful, bright sparkle. I absolutely love this ring!!! My husband, who is not a fan of jewelry, really likes the unique design of the two rings.

Konstanze was wonderful to work with – patiently answering my questions and doing everything she could to ensure we got the rings I wanted! I am a repeat customer and will be back again. Thank you Konstanze!!

Better in real life

It was such a joy to be able to choose my own Stone for my 50th gift. The Montana sapphire was the perfect size and colour. I will definitely use Nodeform again.
