    Default How to unglue a cabochon from a ring?

    Hi everybody,
    I have a question: how to unglue a cabochon from a ring without damaging them? I usually use epoxy glue (two components to mix, fast setting in 5 minutes) to glue the cabochon on the ring. Thanks in advance for the replies.

    if its precious metal usually the stone is set ? You cut the metal away of edge it back until you can remove the stone. can you post a picture of the ring. Im not sure if its glued and i guess it depends on what the stone is made from as to what you can use to remove it

    Try superglue dissolver. It usually works on epoxy but may take some time. Slosh the dissolver on then put the piece in a small ziplock bag because it will evaporate otherwise.
