Gem Polishing
Jewellery restoration process by Marlow's Fine Jewelry

Gem Polishing in Issaquah, WA

There’s nothing quite as satisfying about wearing a piece of jewelry as the sparkle of the gemstone in the jewelry. Even a small-sized gem can make a big impression if it sparkles. However, gemstones lose their shine and luster over time. This doesn’t mean that you can’t enjoy wearing your jewelry anymore. It simply means it’s time for some tender love and care. At Marlow’s Fine Jewelry, we offer gemstone polishing services designed to restore the sparkle to your jewelry pieces. Our team of professionals will work to restore the brilliance of the gemstone and make it look as good as new.

Benefits of Gem Polishing

Gemstones don’t remain bright and sparkling forever. Gemstones can be damaged through scratching. These scratches can make gemstones look old and worn. Gemstones can also become dull with time as they are exposed to various chemicals in day-to-day wear. Our gemstone polishing services will help to restore your gemstones.

Our experts apply different buffing methods to the surface of gemstones to remove scratches and accumulated dirt and debris. This process reveals a fresh and bright layer. The buffing process gets rid of any imperfection on the surface of the gemstone by removing this top layer.

Your gemstones will not only look brighter but the value of your precious stones will also be improved. Scratches and other imperfections can have a negative impact on the value of a gemstone. Getting rid of the scratches and other imperfections through polishing will help to improve the value of your gemstone.

Our Process
