HI all on “Orchid”
One word…DON’T! it immediately makes the gold much more harder to
set stones in, bright-cutting is almost impossible…So folks if you
have to do a “fast” cast prior to the end of this
"fun-season."…what’s a few more minutes of the gold returning to
the normal room temperature?
If you remove the hot flask out of the centrifuge and dunk it
quickly into a water bath…the result is “hard, white gold”…you
must either let the flask sit in a cooling down casting oven or just
leave it on a shelf to cool down…I just delivered a “hard” white
gold pin with 20 pave’d stones and I asked my client what
happened?..“I did a fast water cool down”…:>(…
