  • Removing soldered 9ct gold jump rings

    Hi
    How do I remove/open a jump ring made from 9ct gold that has been soldered closed?
    Is it a case of sawing through with a fine saw?
    Thanks in advance.

    If you want to be able to use it again, then yes, a jeweller's saw is the best option, and ideally you should saw through the original joint. If you are replacing the ring, then you can snip and scrap and buy a replacement if needed.

          I know, but always here to help if you can and there's not much jewellery wise you can't help with, which I have been grateful for in the past although I rarely make anything these days.
