And do not quench the heated diamond on any form of liquid as
diamonds with tiny holes (treated diamonds) will end up with
something blurry white inside.
You’ll likely end up with a lot worse problem than something blurry
inside if you put a torch to a fracture-filled diamond, and it won’t
be white. It’ll be black and nasty. If there is even the slightest
doubt in your mind about whether a stone has been treated, either
find out for sure with the help of a gemologist or just don’t put any
heat to it. A VVS1 or 2 you won’t have to worry about. Probably.
DO NOT - and this is worth repeating - DO NOT put heat to a
fracture-filled diamond or any other filled gemstone for that matter.
I would also avoid quenching any stone, treated or not, as Marvel
To answer your original question Cheyenne, yes you can anneal the
setting with the stone in place, just heat it up evenly and slowly
and then let it air cool. With white gold it probably won’t make a
heck of a lot of difference though. You’ll probably be better off
filing the setting a little thinner so you have less metal to move.
