Hi, I’m just wondering if anyone has ever had a gem stone re-shaped, or if this is even possible? I have an old sapphire ring that belonged to my gran, and would love to use this as my engagement ring for sentimental reasons. At the moment the ring is broken (she put it through a mangle years ago… honestly!) so the band itself is actually crushed out of shape and the stone has some chips around the edge. Given that the stone would therefore need a new setting and some work doing to neaten the edges, I have thought about getting it re-shaped into an oval or cushion-cut, rather than the current emerald cut. Does anyone know if this is possible? Or does it not work because of the facets (or steps?) already cut into it?
Any advice would be much appreciated!
