David brought in a large silver menorah which had the base broken off. He mentioned that he had taken it to several jewelers in Hong Kong as well as Canada but that nobody would even attempt to fix it. Calling on our experience of manufacturing large silver tabletop goods and Judaica items, we were able to restore the heirloom without leaving a mark.
Alex has quite a collection of watches. One day he brought in a particularly rare timepiece made from a special alloy of 18k white gold. The face of the watch had three visible nicks right next to the crystal. After careful analysis of the alloy, we were able to laser weld the damaged areas, leaving no trace.
Joy brought in a late 19th century brooch. Some of the flower petal elements and a pearl were missing. Since she wanted to pass it on to a niece, it was important that it be restored and then converted to function as a pendant. We were able to meticulously recreate the missing petals, replace the pearl and use the pin to create the hanging mechanism so it could be used as a pendant.
Doug came in with a broken labradorite pendant. The stone itself was broken in two. Though, not a valuable gemstone, he explained that his wife loved the piece and he wanted to repair it for her birthday. After many consideration, we decided to recreate the top of the stone in silver while adding in a nature motif to make it even more beautiful.
