Color diamond setting risks


#1

Hi,

I have not worked with colored diamonds much but I am wondering if
there is risk on changing the color on colored diamonds when re
tipping a setting. Cloud anybody give me some advice on the subject?
I am not sure if the diamond has any color enhancing treatment (it
is a medium dark champagne color).

Thank you!

Hello, Do not heat a colored diamond. You cannot predict what will
happen. Any change at allwould be a bad thing. Pull it, rebuild the
prongs and then reset. Pretend the stone is an amethyst.

Take care. Tom Arnold
