Lately I have been receiving a lot of Jewelry repairs from Customers. Half of these repairs I have been getting lately I couldn’t do in the past or if I could there was much more risk then I have now. About a year ago I purchased an Orion 100c Pulse Arc Welder and it was the best purchase I have made so far. It has cut down on a lot of risk, has cut down on the time it takes for me to do repairs and has allow me to take on jobs that in the past I would have rejected.
Below is a ring I received from a customer that was her grandmothers and needed retipping in white gold and also a new diamond. The picture does a bad job of showing the diamond, but I put in an SI2 that is .01ct. I’m still getting use to the settings on my welder, but it made this job easy to do.
