I have an old turquoise bracelet given to me by my mother. There are two stones missing but I have a set of matching earrings. How can I remove the stones from the earring setting without damaging the stones so I can use them to replace the missing stones on the bracelet?
Turquoise's soft quality and the sentimental value of these pieces make this sound like a job for a professional jeweler. Contact a trusted jeweler in your community and let him or her repair your much-loved bracelet.
