Here Are Times When Laser Welding May Be A Good Option
- When gemstones are close to an area that needs to be soldered (welded) and repaired, laser welding may be best. Protecting gemstones is of utmost importance when repairing your jewelry. Traditionally, jewelers remove gemstones before necessary repairs. Then they reset them all. A very costly and risky business. Sometimes we can avoid this by using the laser welder.
- For intricate fragile designs in metals like filigree styles. Especially helpful for antique or vintage jewelry.
- Can be a good option for very delicate chains.
- Costume jewelry made of non-precious metals may be repairable with a laser welder.
