confidence/experience will see you through. ENJOY stone setting and
don't be afraid to ask for help or advice if your uncertain.
If you all can't tell I'm really enjoying this list. I think it's
great. Fun and informative.
I also think the timing of this thread is great, becuase as irony
would have it I'm reading it polishing the waxes for rings into which
(once they are cast and prepaired) I will be setting diamonds for the
first time in my little life. For added fun and frolick the rings are
going to be in a metal I've never worked with before. Thankfully I
have done the setting style before (gypsy).
Yup first diamond setting, is gypsy in an unfamiliar metal..... I
might be panicing if I wasn't too busy laughing at myself. I honestly
don't know if I'm a masochist or an idiot.
So anyway other then general advise, which is always welcome, I
gotta ask, nickle white gold (18k) air cool to anneal yes?
