I had another major mishap. While setting a large ammolite into an
18k yg bracelet my bezel pusher slipped and gouged out a hole in the
stone. I thought I could repair the stone, but ended up taking off
too much of the color layer so the stone is ruined. I am looking for
a source for ammolite, I need blue which is rare, and its fairly
large 30x20mm. It will need to be cut to fit the setting but I can do
that, or I can send a pattern of the shape I need. This is a high
ticket item, and I worked a long time fabricating the bracelet -
plus I have already tube set 3.15c diamonds.
My own fault, I know how fragile ammolite is, I should have covered
it with masking tape.
The customer wants me to find another stone, so I hope it is
I would really appreciate anyone who can help me.
