Jewellery Repair & Laser Welding

Our laser welding station is a recent addition to our workshop and this allows us to weld a wide range of precious metals and can be used during manufacturing of jewellery as well as for making repairs.

The team at Elliot-Fitzpatrick are now able to use the latest technology for all aspects of jewellery manufacturing and repair.

Laser welding is useful for a range of jewellery services and laser welds provide a much stronger join than traditional soldering. Another advantage of laser welding is that in most cases stones do not need to be removed from jewellery before a repair can be carried out.

Repair work carried out by laser is also nearly invisible making for a much better repair especially for antique or vintage jewellery pieces. Another advantage is that repairs take a lot less time. Instead of un-setting stones, carrying out a repair and then re-setting the stones this can now be done in one step.

It’s fair to say that laser welding has helped to revolutionise traditional jewellery making allowing jewellers greater creative freedom. At Elliot-Fitzpatrick we have embraced this technology and are continually mastering the art of laser welding.
