ok, i had to try this. So i baked my Berricle ring and here it is. I would say overall yes it is darker, but it almost took on a slight brownish tinge! I am not really happy with it…

Did let it cool for a hour before taking it out of over ? Try baking again see if it will help . Weird it has a brown tint lilsweetie:

lilsweetie:  you burnt your stone!  I tried this about a year ago with a cz pendant from berricle and it also turned light brown. I followed others advice on the baking exactly. So I’m wondering if this has something to do with the cz berricle uses.

If you bake it again It will just turn more brown. Unless you want to go for a champagne look, hell at this point you have nothing to lose. Sorry you messed up your stand in ring. Who knows maybe it will look like a fancy brown diamond if you do it again.

mrssloan2013:  It must be Berricle’s CZ then! I only baked it for 30 mins. Others here are baking for 2-3 hours. Oh well, live and learn. It was my stand in ring so I am not heartbroken over it 🙂 Just hope this is a warning to others.

Don’t bake Berricle CZ!!!

I have read so much on this and I’m still terrified to try it lol. I love my CZ e-ring, but sometimes I feel like it is too “see through.” But I’m scared to bake mine and it get ruined….

emilyjean89:  The general “rule of thumb” is not to bake anything you would be upset about having ruined. I have baked several pieces, the worst that’s happened is once I baked a ring that was rose gold plated and the plating baked off. 

I have had some great outcomes though. I always put the piece in the cold oven in a small dish, turn up to aout 350-400 and let it bake 1-2 or even three hours, turn off the oven aand let it cool 100% inside the oven. It also helps to clean the piece before and after.
