Some years ago a friend gave me two diamond coated files to use on
stones. Sometimes, I will make a bezel, only to find, when I am
ready to set the stone that it is a smidgen too tight, even though
it seemed to fit the stone perfectly when I made it.
I use the diamond files on the edges of the stone to reduce it a bit
in size. Works perfectly as I am carful not to touch the face of the
The files are now almost totally worn down, and I would like to
replace them. However, a search on the internet showed many diamond
files available, but none like the ones I need. Mine are small, flat
files, no handles, coated on one side only, and measure 3/4" X 4"
and are a little less than 1mm thick. They are very thin.
I have two, one with coarse grit, the other fine grit, and I have
found them to be very useful when I need to reduce the size of a
stone just a wee bit, to make it fit the bezel.
Does anyone have any as to where I can get some of these
I spent a long time on the internet, but found nothing like the ones
Thanks in advance, Alma
