Chain Repair

  • Laser Soldering
  • Jump rings
  • End tabs
  • Lobster claws
  • Clasps
  • Spring rings
Chains, like many other types of jewelry, are subject to everyday wear and tear and need to be maintained on a regular basis. Chains can weaken, stretch, bend, kink, erode, break or just wear down. Chain repair can be done in two-ways:

Torch Soldering
Uses a torch with a high heat flame to join metal together. Most of the time this method is safe and is frequently used in jewelry procedures where two metals have to be joined.

Laser Soldering
Fuses two metals together with a focused light beam. There are outstanding benefits to using a laser in jewelry repairs; the small amount of heat generated at the melt point allows the jeweler to weld heat sensitive areas, protecting fragile gemstones, thinning areas, and plated costume jewelry. It is hard to detect the repaired area in most cases. A laser is used extensively to preserve and protect antique and precious jewelry pieces and their value.

Connectors Repair/Replacement
Connectors can wear down and split; these may require soldering or replacement, depending on the severity of the damage.
  • Jump Rings – small circular ring on each end of the chain
  • End Tab – tab that finishes the ends of necklaces and bracelets.
  • Basic Clasps Replacement
  • Spring Rings – a basic circle shaped clasp operated by a spring closure
  • Lobster Claw Clasp – the recommended clasp because it is soldered on both ends making it more secure and durable
