Endless talk of all things sparkly.

Setting My Diamond…

I am very excited because I dropped off my diamond today to be made into a ring!  I am having it done at Bell Jewelers in Murfreesboro, Tennessee.  The diamond is a 0.60 carat pear-shaped with a fancy champagne color.  It was difficult to decide what I wanted it made into…I decided to go with a 14k yellow gold ring with the diamond in a bezel setting.  It should be finished and ready to be picked up around the beginning of August!

Here are a few tips to consider if you have a diamond you want made into a piece of jewelry:

  • Consider all possibilities:…ring, necklace, earrings, bracelet…??
  • Bring in pictures or draw pictures: sometimes explaining things doesn’t always work out
  • Make sure the jeweler is experienced: do your research online
  • Use old, broken gold to make a new piece of jewelry: always save old, broken gold
