Restoration Process

We employ a resurfacing process, which involves grinding away chips and re-beveling the rim. Our specialists will also polish the item with a diamond compound to complete the process. If the chip is less than 1/4 inch deep, the piece can be restored to full value. Terry points out that broken pieces that have been bonded often do not retain their full value.
