Hello from England!
I’m fairly new to Orchid, but am already enjoying all the wonderful
discussion it provides.
I wonder if anyone can give me advice about soldering white gold? I
recently made a ring (a plain band of D shaped wire) and found it
impossible to hide the join. No matter what I did a very fine pale
line could be seen across the joint. I spent hours on the polishing
stage but just could not overcome the problem. I’m left guessing that
the solder simply came out a paler shade than the wire from which the
ring was made - even though both wire and solder were 18 ct gold! Can
anyone tell me how to overcome this problem in future, please?
