    Warm the piece with a torch until the solder joint oxidises.
    It's how I find them when doing ring repairs/resizing too.

    I tried before but couldn't see the joint. Also I cant warm to much because there are other materials no so heat resistant attached.
    Any other way to find the joint?

    If you've got stones, immerse them in water. Otherwise... Wait for it to tarnish (or use something to deliberately tarnish it).

    At least it says you've done a nice job on the soldering / cleanup!!
