I’m new to the group and look forward to learning and sharing I
have a customer who came to me to replace the cracked opal in his
wedding ring. We decided on a 8x10 smooth domed, Rainbow Topaz and
the ring is 10k yellow gold. The bezel cup is sort of recessed into
the ring shank is the best way I can describe it so I didn’t see any
other way to set it except for using glue. I tried E6000 which
failed. I contacted Rio Grande (because I had JetSet on hand) and
they said the JetSet would work. It lasted about a week.
I have some of the 3M VHB tape but I’ve never used it before and am
not sure if it would work being that the stone is transparent and the
tape is white. Anyone have any experience with it or any other
suggestions as to what might work? Thanks!
