Our colors are not enhancements, except for heat treatment of colorless stones to give them the look of the now-gone Chinese white and RG white (we still have some in stock in rounds and a few other shapes). The colors such as pink start out with pink rough, so the color does not change unless the stones are torched.
oh, ok. Thank you! If I had one set and needed to have work done on it would the jeweler just treat the ring like regular CZ then, or is there a temperature to stay below; like 1020 F for enhanced moissy.
I've been a long time reader of this forum. In fact, this is where I found out about your website. This is my first time posting...so here goes
I recently order a loose emerald cut cz stone from you, but returned it. The quality was great, but the stone was too small. I am now thinking about ordering the same stone in the larger 12mm x 10mm size.
I am new to the cz stone world and have been doing a lot of research-reading lots of post on this site. I just read info on your site about heat enhanced stones and am confused about Chinese White (which you no longer carry) vs colorless vs Colorless Heat Enhanced stones.
I assume it's a matter of taste and opinion as to what head enhancement looks the most diamond like. But any info and/or input from you and other members would be appreciated.
If you look on this page: http://winkcz.com/loose-cz/in-house-inventory/
You can see that there are still some CW in stock. The colorless heat enhancement to Imperial White looks the same as the Chinese White. Both the CW and the Imperial heat enhanced are about an H color.
RG white and Royal White heat enhancement is about an F/G color.
Color does not make a stone look diamond like. The cutting does. Diamonds come in many colors, but the cutting of a diamond is what brings the beauty out. Color is also very subjective. Some people prefer icy white while others prefer a rich buttery warmth in their stones.
