Laser Jewelry Repair
Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation)
Laser technology opens the doors
for restoration, repair, and manufacturing work previously thought impossible.
Unlike traditional repairs that require heating large areas, the computer
controlled laser beam pinpoints heat at precisely where metals are to be joined.
This controllable heat accuracy effectively eliminates the normal risk to
In the past, these stones would need to be removed, putting them at risk for
damage during the removal or resetting processes. Previously, heat shielding on
gemstones, or submersion of the jewelry in water could alleviate these risks,
but not completely ensure gemstone safety.
All gemstones are at risk for heat damage. A traditional platinum sizing job can
literally melt or explode diamonds! Starweld technology allows for pinpoint heat
control at microsecond intervals - keeping your gemstones safe from heat
The completed repair is invisible; and the structural integrity of the fused
metal is 95% of that of the original, as opposed to the 15-20% comparison for
traditional solders. Further, the accuracy and close range allowed by this
technology are similar to, if not more precise than many surgical procedures.
Laser welding allows repairs as close as 0.5mm to intricate or complicated
parts. For antique pieces with intricate detail, which were previously
impossible to repair, StarWeld technology provides the only viable way to return
the jewelry to its original condition.
Ever had to have a ring repaired again because of a "cold solder
joint"? Not anymore! Laser Welding is completely unlike solder in that it
fuses the metals together.
Nothing beats Laser Welding for Platinum work. Platinum is a metal that must be
welded, either by torch or by Laser. Torch welding heats the entire piece,
gemstones and all. This type of heat opens up many problems with visible sizing
joints, melted links, burnt stones, and brittle prongs. Laser Welding technology
puts the heat where it's needed, without changing the structural integrity of
the rest of your valued piece.
