WHAT IS THE SHINING SERVICE ?


This service makes it possible to give a piece of Radhika Jewellery back its sparkling appearance if it has become dull or has superficial scratches. This service is not available for rhodium plated jewelry.


Performed in a Radhika boutique by a Radhika specialist, this service includes the following operations:

  • The piece of jewelry is diagnosed;
  • The metal's sparkle is enhanced using a felt disc and shining paste. If this operation reveals slight scratches, these may be removed only by polishing.
  • The piece of jewelry is cleaned, particularly its less accessible parts, by immersion in an ultrasonic tank filled with lukewarm soapy water. All jewelry creations may be subjected to ultrasound treatment, except for those containing emeralds, pearls and certain other gems that are considered too delicate.
  • A technical and aesthetic inspection is carried out in accordance with Radhika quality criteria.

WHAT IS THE POLISHING SERVICE?


The Polishing Service allows your Radhika watch to rediscover its original shine and brilliance.


Nevertheless, given that the removal of a thin layer of metal is involved, Radhika recommends you not to have this service carried out more than eight times in the lifetime of a watch made of yellow gold. Since it also requires that the movement be uncased, polishing is systematically accompanied by a Maintenance or Complete Service.


Performed by a Radhika specialist polisher, the Polishing Service includes the following operations:

  • The case and the bracelet are disassembled;
  • The movement and related parts are removed from the case;
  • the surfaces of the case, case back, clasp and bracelet are reworked in three stages:
  • felting: superficial scratches are removed using a very hard brush and a very abrasive paste; it should be noted however that certain deep scratches cannot be removed;
  • shining: the final shine is given using a soft brush and a fine paste;
  • the different parts of the watch are reassembled.

WHAT IS THE RE-SIZING SERVICE ?


Performed on a bracelet, necklace or ring, this service consists of increasing or reducing the size of the item as much as possible. It involves a series of meticulous and delicate operations.


Performed by a Radhika specialist jeweler, the service includes the following operations:


  • The diagnosis;
  • The adjustment of the size:
  • For rings, the jeweler opens up the body of the ring using a miniature saw. He removes or adds a piece of metal, and then, using tweezers, reassembles the two separated parts.
  • In the case of a chain or a piece of jewelry with links, the adjustment is performed by removing or adding links before reassembling the whole.
  • The cleaning of the piece of jewelry, particularly its less accessible parts, by immersion in an ultrasonic tank filled with lukewarm soapy water. All jewelry creations may be subjected to ultrasound treatment, except for those containing emeralds, pearls and certain other gems that are considered too delicate.
  • Rhodium plating: to reinforce the whiteness and brilliance of white gold, it is sometimes covered with a fine layer of rhodium, a rare precious metal of the platinum family.

This operation consists of the following stages:

  • Before polishing, the remaining layer of rhodium is removed so as to obtain a naked surface to which the new layer can be applied;
  • After polishing, the immersion of the piece of jewelry in a rhodium bath to deposit a new fine layer of metal on the surface of the white gold.
  • A technical and aesthetic inspection is carried out in accordance with Radhika quality criteria.

Please note that during the polishing process a fine layer of metal is removed. This is why we recommend you not to have this service carried out more than twice in the lifetime of a piece of jewelry made of white or yellow gold. It should also be noted that certain deep scratches cannot be removed. Please also note that it is technically impossible to polish white gold so as to give it a black finish.

WHAT IS THE TRANSFORMATION SERVICE ?
