Sensitive Stones

Another repair for an Emerald ring.
Despite every indication that this ring was worn gently, you can see that the emerald is chipped and badly abraded or scratched.
The claws were also badly worn and in need of re-tipping.

Often sensitive stones such as emeralds must be removed from the ring before re-tipping can be completed and then re-set when the repair is finished.

In this case I was able to re-tip with the emeralds in place using the laser welder.
The client has opted to re-set the original stone despite the damage.
