I have a really old Rose gold signet ring my sister bought it second hand about 15yrs ago which is currently unwearable as the shank has cracked all the way through. I would like to wear the ring on occasion in the future but obviously would need to get it fixed.

My question is should any jeweler be able to fix this without much difficulty or is it more difficult then what I think it should be?

TIA

not a problem usually.
Is the crack at the bottom opposite the head?
The benchman may need to order some rose gold solder as many don''t stock it.

The crack is on the right hand side at about 2 o''clock and goes right through the shank

thanks Strm :)

It''s fixable; the benchperson just needs to get rose gold solder than matches the colour of the shank.
