Goldcrafters by Tiki


Second Repair Example:
Picture B

Picture B : This photograph depicts an old yellow gold ring originally mounting a green-blue nugget style turquoise stone. This repair was very unusual and complicated. The cause of the damage had been a smashing with a five-pound sledge hammer thus flattening the ring. In the process the stone popped out. Note the bezel or lip of gold that held the stone was torn and broken.

Goldcrafters re-shaped the ring, ground off the damaged bezel, made a new bezel by hand, soldered the new bezel on at 1600 degrees, filled in other damaged areas with gold solder, and re-set the stone. The approximate price of this repair is around $180.00 plus Shipping and Handling charges.
