How exactly are these made adjustable? Couldn't that be stressing on the sterling bands? Sorry if this is a stupid question.

"created diamond" by Lawrence
Out of all the diamond simulants out there....is there a "best kind/type"? As has been pointed out, "created diamond" would suggest a true synthetic, which is actually diamond, just man made. These, of course are best in terms of duplicating the properties and appearance of natural diamonds. ...

"created diamond" by Lawrence
Hi. Out of all the diamond simulants out there....is there a "best kind/type"? all of them tout that their diamond simulant is better than others, or how close it resembles a real diamond so closely, etc etc. -lawrence b. lugar

"Golden Mean Guage"? by [email protected]
I've been looking for examples of these on internet and so far only have found one place that makes them(for lots of $). I wondered if there had been anyone in the past who had a similar instrument but have found nothing. What did the Greeks use? I work for a company that makes supplies for people...

"Scratch Resistant"? by Darren Harris
Can anyone advise me on how to know whether a scratch resistant bezel is really scratch resistant. The last several watches I picked up that were supposed to have "scratch resistant" bezels turn out to scratch as easily as any other watch. Evidently the term "scratch resistant" means very...

"shattered" pieces of gold or silver? (maybe question for Peter) by Bob Edwards
I'm trying to come up with a technique for making small bits of gold or silver with the appearance of weathered stone blocks, broken stone, etc., but on a jewelry-sized scale. Which "bits" would then be granulated onto a backing piece. We are talking small enough "bits" that casting them from wax...

"transforming" a chain by m4816k
I have a curb chain that I think is a bit too long. I came up with an idea of transforming it in a singapore chain, cause I'd like it to keep the weight and a similar "link" look, with a minimum work done on it (so I don't want to just shorten it). Is that possible to do (and is it...

$1,000.00 Wish List by Raane
Let me put it another way.... If your budget to set up a jewelry studio (initially) was one thousand dollars - which is about what I have - what would you buy? My main interest, at this point is metalwork - silver, copper brass. I like the work of Sydney Lynch among others. So, how can I make do,...
