Article: Bracelet Shortening and Reassembling
This Charles and Colvard created moissanite (hereafter referred to as moissanite) and two-tone karat gold in-line bracelet requires shortening by two links. The bracelet is held together by a heavy link-wire that's wrapped around an open portion of the adjacent link and permanently joined, giving the bracelet maximum flexibility.
Below is a procedure for shortening, reassembling and permanent welding of the link using pulse-arc-welding technology.
This bracelet has alternating 14-karat yellow and white gold domed links. A 5 millimeter round brilliant moissanite is flush set in each of the white gold domed links.
All tack- and pulse-arc equipment settings will differ and are based upon the volume and alloy of the material you are working with. Working with like materials will give you a parameter for the settings required for your application. Keep a record of settings and tasks for future reference.
