Gold Jewelry Repair Frequently Asked Questions
How much does it cost to fix a gold necklace?
Costs to fix a gold necklace range from $35 to $250. How much depends on the type (link, cable, box, rope, hollow, herringbone), weight/quality of the gold, location and severity of the damage. Sometimes the fix is as simple as oiling a hinge, soldering a link or replacing the clasp. Stop by Joseph’s Jewelry for a free estimate from our on-site repair specialist.

Can gold chains be fixed?
Yes, gold chains can be fixed. Link, cable and box chains are the easiest to repair. If a link breaks, you may be able to reattach it yourself. However, hollow/rope, herringbone and wheat chains are trickier and may require soldering. To ensure your gold chain looks as good as new, have it fixed by one of the on-site repair specialists at Joseph’s Jewelry.
Can you fuse 18k gold?
Yes, you can fuse 18k gold, but it is not recommended. Fusing is most successful with 24k gold. (Fusing doesn’t work with alloys.) Fusing one metal to another does make a piece stronger, but it’s risky, because you have to use a propane torch to melt the metals. Have our jewelry repair expert examine the pieces you’d like fused. You may find soldering works just as well.
Does melting gold purify it?
Yes, melting gold does purify it. Compared to other metals, gold has a rather low melting point, making it a relatively simple process. Once the gold — raw or scrap — is melted, it can be treated with chloride, ammonium chloride and/or hydrochloric acid. Any one of these electrolyte solutions removes minerals and other foreign elements, leaving behind almost 100 percent pure gold.
How much gold do you lose when you melt it down?
You don’t lose gold when you melt it down. You lose the inherent impurities found in raw gold or metals such as lead or silver that were added when the gold was made into jewelry. The percentage of gold remains the same. Start with a gram of gold and after you melt it down, you still have a gram of gold. All you lose are the impurities.
