Here's a good example of an emerald or octagonal cut diamond and millegrain decoration. The millegrain pattern is achieved by a setter using a knurling/millegrain tool to make tiny furrows and ridges into a metal edge.

All it took was a little effort to restore this ring to its former glory. We made a new centre setting edge in 18ct white gold, replaced the missing diamond and polished the setting and the centre stone.

Demonstration of an ultrasonic tank being used to clean a watch bracelet during a watch refurbishment.
Ultrasonic cleaners work by using energy conversion. A generator produces electric waves through a liquid which a transducer then converts to ultrasonic sound waves. This results in millions of microscopic ‘bubbles’ forming in low pressure areas. As the next sound wave passes through the solution the pressure rises rapidly causing the bubbles to violently implode. This creates highly effective micro jets that scrub any immersed item. These jets are powerful enough to dislodge dirt particles, grease, grime from difficult to reach areas, ideal for cleaning jewellery and metal watch bracelets.
N.B. Ultrasonic cleaners are not suitable for certain gemstones such as pearls, opals, amber, treated emeralds, apatite, coral, lapis and malachite.

Problem: The top section of this ring was missing. Solution: We hand carved a wax to replace the missing section. This wax was used in the lost wax process to cast a matching piece. The cast piece was hand finished & then added to the ring. New diamonds to match were supplied and set.
