- Reaction score
My wife having died, I find myself having inherited a number of really nice post-type earrings, all of which have sentimental value and many of which are sterling/semi-precious stones (malachite/amber/thompsonite, etc.) and roughly the general dimension of standard cufflinks. I'd like to keep these and - having ruled out getting my ears pierced - wondered about how feasible it would be to ask a jeweler or silversmith about the possibility of just burring off the post on the back of the earring and brazing (or whatever) a backing to turn these into cuff links. Any experience or input from all of you renaissance-type guys out there?
