    Default Superglue on gold - help please!

    Hi all,
    A customer who I made an 18ct ring for, and resized a 22ct ring for, has got superglue on them. What's the best way to remove it, is there any way to do it?

    Nail varnish remover disolves it.

    Tiy can get specific super glue release fluid - very useful to have around if you ever use superglue.
    It should just ping off though, start the process by picking with the tip of a needle then use your nail or continue with the needle

    Watch the fumes if you burn off, they are very toxic. And of course only works if you can heat and then pickle the piece. Not if it is set with something

    True but you don't have to heat it much to melt the glue, most stones would be ok barring things like turquoise.
