marriedalready69:  oh!  I didnt thinking it that way. I thought that if it came in looking obviously fake or too white I could tone it done some and make it look more realistic. Is that not ok?  Please advise me because I don’t want to mess it up lol.

leekissesme:  Oh no no.. your train of thought is correct.  There are so many reasons I’ve seen bees bake their cz’s.  I had several pieces that I baked, and I remember I warmed up a perfectly white and sparkly pear [it was new] because I baked it.  I actually made it look more like my FB’s but I didn’t mean to do it, so I was just checking.   and all pieces come out differently, it’s like a cracker jack box you never know what you’re going to end up with.

I love science experiments!  I baked one of mine a few months ago when I first saw this thread. (On phone, so big pics 🙁 )

Ok, so I was very skeptical about this but I did it anyways! My amazing fiancé bought me a gorgeous 5ct CZ engagement ring (I don’t care if it’s fake, I picked it out.) When I came across this thread, I was inspired because I never realized how white and glassy my ring looked until I saw photos of the baked ones. So I decided to bake my ring, after a good wash, dry for an hour at 375 and then let it cool down with the oven. Let me tell y’all, I AM IN LOVE. My ring now looks like the stones have been replaced with diamonds. It has AMAZING depth and looks so close to real – I could die.

Like I said, huge difference and I love it. I am going to bake it once more in a week or so. Thanks for all the advice on this thread!!

tryptofanaticat :  yes I am really scared of doing that!! That’s why I only baked it for one hour at 375 then let it cool for an hour. And then I’ll repeat it in a week. I’ve been so many people do it at high temps for longer periods of time and that scares the crap out me. 

Also, thank you so much! I’m so pleased with how it came out.

I find this really interesting. I am doing an at home try on ring thing right now with a cz replica of a ring and the ring I love and can’t stop wearing is really beautiful. EXCEPT it’s straight up like…blinding white blue? It just doesn’t look real. I was almost going to write a post in here about it? I think I may prefer a slightly warmer diamond. The brighter whites just aren’t my thing.

That’s how I felt too. My ring was VERY bright white, glassy. I like more dark depth that’s why I want to bake it once more! I HIGHLY suggest it. The difference really depends on ring to ring, but i’m really happy with my results so far.
