Dear Bench Jewelers/gem experts, A ring came in for retipping on 3 of
4 tips and tip replacement on the forth prong. The diamond had a
huge chip where the one tip used to be and numerous chips all around
the diamond. It was the customers grandmothers ring. I told the
lady that I do the work for that she needs to show it to her
customer and let her know about the chips before I do any work on
it. My instinct is that the diamond may crack from the torch when I
re-tip, is this a possibility or not?
