Repairing prongs is a common repair. Sometimes a ring’s prong will get caught on something (like fabric, a towel, or a sweater) and it breaks off. We file the broken section flush. A section of wire is cut and sized to the same size as the rest of the prongs. This wire is either soldered with a torch (as shown in the video) or laser welded onto the setting. After the new prong is added, it is formed and pushed over the stone. The ring now has four prongs again! After polishing work the ring is ready for one of our clients to pick up and enjoy again! All of our repair work is done by one of our on-sight jewelers!
