Beyond repair?

Very first of all, wow! In which has summertime long gone? How can it probably be September already ???

This is only likely to be a brief site, but I just needed to share a minor repair service job that I’ve been doing the job on nowadays. The client in the beginning sent me an email a few months ago, as she’d been explained to by a higher street jeweller that her sentimental gold costume ring, was not equipped to be resized. Que that minimal evil bit in my mind that just wishes to confirm them mistaken and demonstrate that it IS possible, and voila! A person resized garnet and pearl costume ring. Yes, it IS a sensitive 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, fairly than currently being destined to sit in a box eternally!

The ring in question - so beautiful!

The ring in concern – so gorgeous!

It can be 9ct gold, set with garets and pearls and is pretty delicate, but surely not past restore. It’s a “dress ring” and will in no way have been intended to be worn all of the time.

The ring shank has some fragile engraving all all around it, and mainly because it really is a really smaller ring, the hallmark took up most of the accessible place, so I had to decide on where by to make the lower quite meticulously.

Adding the new gold

It can be all many thanks to my Dado laser welder listed here. It intended that I could insert in a new area of gold and “weld” it in position with out jeopardizing heating (and ruining!) The pearls.

Cleaning up

The moment the new piece of gold was welded, it was just a case of incredibly meticulously cleansing up the joins.

Not forgetting the inside.

The newer gold alloy was a marginally distinct colour, but it’s going to all mix in with a polish.

Ready to wear!

Ready to put on!

Yes, you can see the be part of if you search intently, but from time to time it is not all about fully hiding the new section. This ring was about preservation and earning it wearable yet again.

Polished and ready for many more years!

Polished and prepared for quite a few much more decades!

A “very” thorough polish so as not to damage all those fragile pearls, or to take out to considerably of the character. In my opinion, it can be proper for an antique to seem as these types of!
