Lamy Studio Jewel Removal


Recommended Posts

I was wondering if anyone could post a detailed description or photo string to show how to remove the jewel from the lamy studio cap. My clip is loose and wiggles back and forth. I read somewhere else that this could potentially be fixed by taking the jewel off and adjusting the clip placement in the jewel. Unfortunately I can't get the jewel to move no matter what I do. I have removed the brass screw and rubber insert inside the cap but that's as far as I can get. I don't want to get to pushy with it for fear of damaging the jewel, so I haven't used any tools yet.

I got interested in this topic so I took one of my Studio:s, and removed the inner cap to investigate.

I´m not sure if the jewel/clip assembly is possible to remove.


The assembly of the jewel/clip is secured with a brass tube which has four groves.

Maybe it´s possible to unscrew this tube with a proper tool, but it can be riveted in place and not intended for removal.


Perhaps other members know about the possibility to remove the jewel/clip on the Studio.


Take care when working with the cap on the Studio! :yikes:

If you don´t look out you can make deep scratches on the cap if you hold the cap so you press the clip onto the cap.

As you know this "propeller"-clip only has contact with the cap at a "point".

A way to prevent this is to place some protection between the "tip" of the clip and the cap.

You can dissemble it fully I have before for fun.


1. First of all get a flat head screw driver placed it inside the cap and unscrew the screw and the inner cap should drop out with the screw.

2. Now you have to unscrew the chrome top above the clip. you can normally do his by hand. A brass nut should drop out and the clip should come off.


It's quite simple.


any other q's do ask

Ok thanks for the replies. I've tried to unscrew the jewel by hand and it's quite firmly in place. Any ideas for how to remove it in my case? BTW I've read that the jewel cap is conventional right hand thread but I've tried both directions to no avail.


And Lemur, I've already put scratches on the cap from clip movement with every day use and being in my bag as I cart it back and forth to work. Seems like they could have made more of an effort to prevent this in the clip design.

Same here, it doesn't budge an inch no matter the direction. Even tried with a glove for better friction. Is there a trick or are there different kind of studio caps?

      @Texas42 Thank you. I myself have recently had the experience of cleaning out a Wing Sung 699, in which the iron-gall ink has been sitting for six months. No damage to the metal piston rod (whereas, in a Wing Sung 3013 vacuum-filler, it would have been corroded, turned green, and contaminated the ink in mere weeks), but there was a ring of colour at the far end of the barrel that wouldn't budge, and I found it impossible to unscrew the filling mechanism to clean the interior wall of the ink rese

      Dang. You are a great friend!   One comment as a relative newcomer would be within the cleaning section: issues/differences in cleaning vacuum filler, piston filler in addition to cartridge/converter. I just cleaned out my Pilot 823 and while it wasn't particularly difficult I was a little paranoid about the drops of water that I could not get out. Perhaps this is something you are already including.   Anyway, great project and very thoughtful of you. I know it's a project fo

      Ah Ruaidhri ya wee heid banger, you do indeed have an Irishman’s way wid dose words now. I’ll be from outer Aberdeenshire up in the blizzard riven braes of the Grampians.  Amateur medicine and surgery is it? Well what noble aspirations you do possess, we need to encourage such noble experimentations.  I pondered on leaving my own battered shell to science, but, until I read your pearls of wisdom and lament, I had comedown on the side of leaving my body to Findus frozen foods.  However, your rema

      Hi Smug Dill,   Nice project.  If it were me, I'd cover stuff like: - nib types available, i.e. styles, materials (SS vs gold), flex vs nails; - filling systems (I love the "thingie" comment) and how once can use them in practice (e.g. fill cartridges with a syringe); - pen body materials and their consequences (pen not balanced of too heavy and big for the hand); - and, whilst you've made it clear that you do not like vintage pens, a discussion of these beyond "I d

      Thanks for your input! Yes, not putting wood in the list of body materials warranting a mention was an oversight. I love pens with wooden bodies, but my main concern, or chagrin, is that I have not come across a wooden-bodied pen with a wooden cap that seals well. Actually, there is one, but it isn't really wood per se: the Pilot Custom Kaede's maple body is resin impregnated. All other wooden pens I have can dry out while capped and undisturbed; that includes several Platinum #3776 models.
