Band Aid Repairs – Jewelry Definition

A Band-Aid repair is a repair done to a poorly made piece of jewelry.  Band aid repairs can’t be guaranteed to last.  The problem has to do with the substandard manufacture of the original piece of jewelry.

Look at the ring in the picture for an example of a band-aid repair.  If you just have the crack soldered  together it’ll break again because the basic ring design is too thin to support wear. That’d be a band aid repair.
