Buffing & Polishing Bands
Polishing & Buffing
Rings, along with other jewelry, will get scratched over time through wear and tear and will lose their shine. A deep clean, followed by a professional buff and polish on a jeweler's lathe will restore it's shine. We offer this service for plain bands which can be safely polished without disrupting the structural integrity of the ring.
A repair trade discount may be available for items purchased through TCG, please reach out to your sales associate to see if there is a discount code.
