Laser Welding

Many jewelry repairs have been near impossible or too expensive until now. GEMBROKERS is the first in Santa Cruz to offer a miracle cure for broken jewelry with the new Laser welder for jewelry.

Recent advances in laser technology have enabled Gembrokers to restore and repair vintage jewelry, create new modern jewelry and safely work on heat sensitive pieces with the new Laser welder. The Laser welder uses amplified light instead of heat and fire to safely repair jewelry. Common laser welding applications include the assembly of complex, multi-colored jewelry pieces, replacing prongs, sizing rings, assembling diamond bracelets, repair stone settings, and attaching settings to ring shanks. Gold and platinum all produce excellent welds. The resulting weld is considerably stronger than a traditional solder joint. Laser-welded connections are 260% stronger than solder and 95% as strong as the original metal.

There are many benefits of working with the Laser including no discoloration of metal and the beauty of invisible seams, especially important with platinum. Because laser welding uses amplified light instead of heat, many times it is unnecessary to remove precious stones.

Many of the repairs made with the Laser welder can be completed within 24 hours. "We're not your old-time jeweler," says Gary Chase. "We are state-of-the-art with design and technology."
