Chain Repair

  • Laser Soldering
  • Laser Welding
  • 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 base. Chains can weaken, stretch, bend, kink, erode, break or just wear down. Chain repair can be down in two-ways:

Torch Soldering
Done by using a torch which uses a high heat flame to join metal together. Most of the time this method is safe and is used in 90% of jewelry procedures where two metals have to be joined

Laser Soldering/Laser Welding
A laser machine joins two metals together by using a focused light beam to fuse a very small area.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.

The Connectors Repair/Replacement
Connectors can wear down and split. These can be repaired by soldering or replacement depending on the severity of the damage.
  • Jump Rings – are a small circular ring on each end of the chain
  • End Tab – is a tab that finishes the ends of necklaces and bracelets. These can be repaired by soldering or replacement depending on the severity of the damage. Used mainly with a Lobster Claw Clasp to give it a finished look.
  • The Basic Clasps Replacement
  • Spring Rings – a basic circle shaped clasps are only looped to the end.
  • Lobster Claw Clasp – the recommended clasp because it is attached by soldered on both ends more secure and durable.
