Curse of the Jade Bangle
November 30, 2012 7:42 AM Subscribe
I've broken my favorite piece of a jewelry -- a solid jade bangle. It dropped on the bathroom floor and broke into 2 pieces (pics 1 2
). When I put the two pieces together it doesn't look too bad (i.e. I think it was a "clean break" with no additional tiny pieces missing), so I'd like to fix it. Can I do this myself and will it look not horrible? What type of stuff could I use to glue the pieces together? If the answers to the previous questions are no and none, do you know of someone (jeweler/stone person) who could fix it in the DC/MD area?

I know that after fixing it (whether myself or professional), I will have to be extra careful as the joint will be a weak point. Believe me, I've learned my lesson with being careful with nice, sentimental jewelry.
