Diamonds' Magical Appeal
Invisibly set diamonds create very visible sales opportunities
This summer, turn one of your showcases into a fairy tale world where
diamonds seem suspended in air, thanks to the time-honored technique of
You might convince customers the diamonds are commanded into position
with the wave of a wand and held in place by thin air.
More likely, however, customers will be interested in the true story,
that invisible setting traditionally involves gems that are shaped with
grooved girdles then set into an underlying network of thin frame settings,
making them quite secure.
This is one magic trick everyone can understand and appreciate.
