Hi,

Since Steven Kretchmer does not deal with consumers directly, does anyone know if there are jeweler(s)/stores that can take a loose diamond and send it to Steven Kretchmer's lab for the setting?


Thanks!

I would imagine any and all of his retail store outlets. You might contact them to find one in your area.

There are a few in my area but they all require you buy the diamond from them, not from elsewhere.

When I was seriously considering a Kretchmer setting, I was very impressed with Charles Koll Jewelers here in San Diego. I can't seem to find a web site for them, but their phone is
(619) 298-5655. That's was all I could find.

Anyway, they said I could bring in my own stone, but it had to be a certain clairty grade, due to the pressure of the tension setting, Kretchmer didn't want to break the stone. They also said, Kretchmer does a test on each stone he sets first, and they warned that it COULD get sent back to us if it didn't pass.

However, I really, really wanted an Asscher cut stone, and they called Kretchmer (??) and said that they could not set that for me

I would call some other Kretchmer vendors. Sorry these guys are not closer.
