We are pleased to offer our expert jewelry services to set your diamond or gemstone into an appropriately shaped Laura Preshong jewelry mount. We also customize many Laura Preshong designs to fit most stone shapes; customized and custom jewelry is non returnable. This service is available for stones 0.25 cts. or larger. A copy of your gem identification certificate or receipt of purchase showing gem characteristics must accompany all gemstones sent to us for setting. The certificates are used for purposes of stone identification. If no certificate is available Laura Preshong can provide a gemstone appraisal for a fee of 50.00.
There is a setting charge for setting your non-Laura Preshong stone in a Laura Preshong Design ranging from 50.00 and to 300.00, depending on necessary design modifications and setting complications due to irregular stone shapes, deeply cut stones or inclusions. This fee also covers stone removal from your old mount. A Waiver of Liability form will be sent to you and must be signed prior to any stone being removed from your old mount, or being re-set by Laura Preshong. We do not remove or use in our designs diamond melee smaller than 3 MM.
We are unable to reuse your precious metals in our designs due to irregular gold alloys, impurities in manufactured metal, and unique gold karat standards. We do not offer a gold refining service and are unable to purchase or apply credit for your gold scrap. Old mounts and gold scrap are packaged and returned to the client with your new jewelry design.
