    I have a pair of silver Tiffany cufflinks that I love and wear often. Today while putting them on, one link snapped off wear the bar meets the solid back surface on the face of the link. Has anyone had this happen and had it fixed by a jeweler? Is it worth it?

    I've never done it but from what I understand it's a pretty simple fix using a soldering iron of some sort. Probably not too expensive. Just take it in somewhere and ask.

    If the link can be heated without destroying some part of the face, a particular danger if they are enameled, it's a simple repair. If there is heat sensitivity they have to be sent out to be laser welded and that's over $100.
