Jewelry, Gems, & Minerals/Platinum Rolled Gold & Orion Diamond

Hi all, rolled gold and orion diamond sounds very deceiving. I did some research and found that only Diamoney diamond in Malaysia is selling the jewellery. The process of gold filling is very costly and is only found in larger items, not jewelry. I believe the base metal is not gold, and they are trying to make let consumers believe that they are buying something of high value, thus the fancy name. It is most likely silver with platinum plating.

ORION is a lab produce synthetic diamond. In Chinese, it is know as 8 hearts 8 arrows. The retailer has tweeted the name to again make it sound very rare. Thus the higher price.

Have a question about jewelry repair or working with precious metal jewelry and gemstones? For many years up to December 31, 2010, I was a working professional bench jeweler, involved everyday with setting stones in mountings, designing and making jewelry, repairing and limited custom manufacture. If you work with jewelry as a hobby or as a profession, I might be able to help. I deal with the retail business, not mass production. Ask privately if you wish. See the box for that: It keeps your question between us. Please DO NOT ask MAKER'S MARKS, but metal quality marks are fine to ask. Please DO NOT ask diamond prices. See a gemologist for that.


I have extensive experience in design, service and making of jewelry. I deal mostly with precious metals and gemstones but work with many materials as needed and usable to create an artistic design. My experience also includes freelance photography and photographer of jewelry and similar items for a former employer and individuals. Design of custom items requires reading the desires of the client and being clear on what can be done within that framework...then fulfilling the transition of idea to reality. Effective communications is essential in a working designer/producer and customer relationship.

Education is English/Physics! Started in human resources, to advertising, to, what a road. I have had formal training in jewelry work and many shared experiences with top grade jewelers. We just never know were we will go or be. Follow your best, your dreams, with some discretion! Don't let the work tear up your body along the way as it has mine.
