Hi... I plan on re-setting my current engagement/wedding rings. The current setting has 1X .50ct high quality diamond on one "band" plus 1X .20ct + 2X .15ct + 2X .10ct diamonds and the 3rd band is set in pave with a large amount of small diamonds. I've bought a 9X9mm princess cut CUBIC ZIRCONIA and plan on using THAT as my MAIN stone on the engagement ring. I would like to trade in the rest of my diamonds and let the jeweler make me two wedding bands with the smaller diamonds together with a REAL diamond "band" for the CZ ring. I'd like the end result to resemble the rings of the ones in the attached pic. I KNOW investments wise its NOT a good idea at all as LARGER diamonds are worth far more than SMALLER ones of the same carat weight BUT: I really, really LOVE the look of these rings and I do not plan on ever selling my rings anyhow... So: In YOUR professional opinion, do you think I have THE most STUPID idea EVER or can it WORK... PLEASE, PLEASE reply before I do a STUPID thing??? Or NOT??? Thank you for your time. Regards. Maureen

After being confronted with a 7 gram loss in weight of my wife's wedding ring (it was originally 20 grams), our (former) jeweler claimed that 6% is lost each of the 3 times it was polished. 6% math doesn't work over 3 polishings, but 13% does. How much (percentage guess) can one expect to lose to polishing?
Hello Michael, In my experience when i have polished any jewelry I have lost maybe .05% if that of....
