Yes, I’ve baked one of my cz rings before, but now you have inspired me to do it again.  To anyone who is new at this remember to clean the ring but DO NOT TOUCH THE STONE afterwards.  Otherwise you will make in the impression of your fingerprint.  Also be sure to put the ring in while the oven is warming up and keep it in there while it is cooling down.  This way you do not crack the stones.

Ive been looking at buying a CZ wedding band, but im scared it will look out with my diamond solitaire, maybe i should buy a silver band, bake it and see. I definitly see the difference. interesting.

Cool! I have never heard of this before. I just got a ring out of a diamond candle that I was considering tossing but I think I’ll try this just to see how it turns out!

I got a CZ from Wink as a stand in stone on my engagement ring and I requested it be heat treated before he sent it. Heating makes a huge difference. 

This was my ring before they had dipped it in rose gold and before the centre stone was switched to the Wink stone. Verragio sent the wrong CZ. Instead of radiant they sent an emerald cut. It wasn’t a big deal since I had my Wink stone to replace it with anyways. You can see how glassy it looks and how it absorbed a lot of the blue in the store.

This is the Wink stone after heat treatment. Doesn’t look see through and doesn’t absorb nearly as much blue as the other CZ did. Plus Wink just has really good cut CZ’s so that also made a huge difference.

mggBoyles:  I’m wearing cz earrings for my wedding so I want to try this. You baked it twice in a row or separate times? And did you put it on a cookie sheet or something ? how long to cool? Sorry for all the questions. Lol
