Beyond repair?

2 min read

Initially of all, wow! Exactly where has summertime absent? How can it potentially be September already ???

This is only likely to be a small blog, but I just wanted to share a minimal repair job that I have been working on currently. The shopper originally sent me an email a couple weeks in the past, as she’d been informed by a large street jeweller that her sentimental gold gown ring, was not able to be resized. Que that minor evil little bit in my mind that just desires to confirm them improper and clearly show that it IS probable, and voila! A single resized garnet and pearl dress ring. Yes, it IS a fragile ring, so she’s not heading to be equipped to dress in it every day, but at the very least it now CAN be worn, relatively than remaining destined to sit in a box for good!

The ring in question - so beautiful!

The ring in problem – so attractive!

It is 9ct gold, set with garets and pearls and is really sensitive, but surely not past maintenance. It truly is a “dress ring” and will never have been meant to be worn all of the time.

The ring shank has some fragile engraving all all-around it, and since it can be a very tiny ring, the hallmark took up most of the offered space, so I had to select in which to make the slash extremely thoroughly.

Adding the new gold

Introducing the new gold

It truly is all thanks to my Dado laser welder right here. It meant that I could add in a new portion of gold and “weld” it in spot without the need of risking heating (and ruining!) The pearls.

Once the new piece of gold was welded, it was just a circumstance of extremely cautiously cleansing up the joins.

Not forgetting the inside.

The newer gold alloy was a slightly distinctive color, but it’s going to all mix in with a polish.

Ready to wear!

Prepared to wear!

Certainly, you can see the sign up for if you search closely, but from time to time it truly is not all about absolutely hiding the new section. This ring was about preservation and creating it wearable yet again.

Polished and ready for many more years!

A “very” mindful polish so as not to problems those people sensitive pearls, or to take away to a lot of the character. In my viewpoint, it can be right for an antique to glance as such!
