With the busy holiday season coming to a close, we wanted to share a refurbishing job that Todd completed for one of our customers. See customer's testimonial and pictures below!
"I purchased this ring on an auction website earlier this year. My fiancé did not have the same vision for this ring that I did. I knew if I could only put it in the hands of a true craftsman it could be restored to its former glory. My fiancé decided to take it to Perry’s and are we glad he did! He met with Todd Fogle, Perry’s master goldsmith, who quickly saw the potential of this antique ring. Not only was the ring old and very tired but someone had soldered on ring bands on either side of the ring—I assume this was to size it. When this alteration was made long ago they used 14k yellow and white gold bands on a platinum ring. This looked terrible! Also, apparently, over time the prongs had worn down. Instead of building up the prongs and resetting the diamonds, they GLUED them in—Yikes!! Well, the video of the ring after Todd finished with it speaks for itself (hopefully the video uploads). Something you can’t see however is how Todd sized the ring to fit me. I’ve never seen anything like this before. I will not do it justice by describing it so I won't try, but it is not noticeable and feels wonderful on my finger.
Something I would like to also mention is how special this was for me personally. I am marrying my lifelong sweetheart. We have known each other for 31 years and life’s circumstances kept us from marrying but we are finally getting married now. This ring means so much to me. I will never be able to properly express my gratitude to Todd for helping me realize my dream for this beautiful ring. The folks at Perry’s are top-notch in the industry with a wealth of knowledge. Perry’s has an inventory of fantastic jewels but as far as I am concerned Todd Fogle is the most prized jewel of all."
