Soldering Silver.

My Wife has a necklace that I need to solder (not the chain - but the pendant). I want to solder it properly. It is sterling silver. What solder should I use? Any advice?

You will need jewlers solder it is quite different from the commonly avaliable silver solder. My suggestion unless you want to make the investment in a pound of jewlers solder, see th local jewler it should be a cheap and easy job for them to do.

Yeah there are several hardnesses of solder.. and several diffent forms.. stick, wire, paste.. and then you need to use a mixed gas pencil torch. It is really brazing.

Best to see our local jeweler.

Bit of advice when dealing with jewelers... If you have to leave anything over night with them (for one night or an extended time period) have the piece photographed (either as part of an appraisal or photo graphed by someone who can do a macro photo.. include a ruler and something that shows the date, if possible, in the photo).

I have heard several storries from my family (mom and soon to be ex mother in law) of a jeweler basically either stealing metal from rings or swapping out stones.

To make a long storry short.. with improtant stuff.. either heirloom, wedding/engagement bands or other good jewelry, have it appraised or photographed before taking it in... some jewelers are thieves.
