A chipped gemstone can be fixed. However, the shape and overall look might have to change. This is because a chipped gemstone may have to be re-faceted or recut to remove the chip.
Chipped or cracked gemstones can often either be glued, polished, or recut to save the stone and keep the jewelry item as close to the original as possible.
They may even send it off to a lapidary who will have the necessary tools to perform the polishing. If the gemstone is in a ring, there's a possibility it can be polished without being removed.
Sometimes the best way to save a gemstone is by getting it recut. If the chip is too big to be glued or you don't have the broken piece, getting the gem recut can restore some of its value
The cost to recut a gemstone will depend on a number of factors. One of the main factors is the type of gemstone that needs to be recut. Sometimes the cost will depend on the number of carats.
