Some of the most common reasons for chain repair include adjusting the length, replacing a broken clasp, fixing broken links or simply soldering a break. Jewelry repair that requires soldering must be done in a way that makes an item’s broken spot nearly undetectable when completed.
Bracelets may require repair because they come in contact with many other objects as you wear them. Most common repairs include replacing the clasp, tightening loose stones, re-building hinge pins and adding a safety clasp or a chain. Bracelets should have a second safety device in case the clasp fails, your safely chain is there to catch it before the bracelet falls off your wrist.
Proper fit is so important because it will prevent you from snagging, breaking or stretching your bracelet. You should be able to have one finger’s width between the bottom of the bracelet and the wrist. If you have any left-over links, we can re-design them into a pair of earrings or a pendant to match. Also, we are able to custom design links to extend the bracelet if needed.
