Stephanie’s Story of her Disaster and Lapis Inlay Ring Repair
Stephanie was just wondering where her lapis ring was when she heard the garbage disposal turn on and heard the horrible sound of a spoon or something grinding in it.
This was the story she told me, Calla Gold, her new Personal Jeweler when I asked if she had any unworking or unwearable jewelry in her jewelry box.
“Turn that off!” she yelled to her husband.
Like the crazy insane brave guy that he was, he just reached in and started feeling around in the disposal. Hadn’t he ever seen the horror movies with the guy who ends up with a stump for reaching into the possessed garbage disposal?
Evidently not. Out his hand came with one very sorry looking ring. Stephanie now remembered taking off her ring yesterday when scrubbing out her big pasta pot.
“Oh no. I loved that ring.” She rinsed it off and dried it and put it sadly into her jewelry box.
She thought it was hopeless to consider that it could be fixed. Enter Repair Jeweler, Calla Gold.
I really wanted to fix this ring for her.
Don’t Give up on Your Garbage Disposal Eaten Ring
I’ve run into about 25 clients who’ve had rings go down the garbage disposal. So I decided to blog about this success story.
We added gold to the gouged edges of Stephanie’s ring.
Then I had my Lapidary (stone and gem cutters) cut a new
piece of Lapis Lazuli for her newly rebuilt inlay setting.
Stephanie wears her ring all the time now. Yay, happy endings are the best!
