Does anyone have a jeweler they can recommend that would be willing to work with me on this setting ? I’d like to find someone who agrees to opening it up to get better access to the trillions. Anyone have a jeweler who REALLY knows his/her stuff and is kind ?

Where are you located @sad about trillions? PS can definitely help you find someone. ❤️

Would you want to keep the trillions or would you be looking at alternate sidestone shapes? I know that you’ve now bought two sets of trillions so switching shape is an even more bitter pill, but - well, I’ll ask anyway.

Thanks!! My preference would be to keep these new trillions - we looked hard and picked out a really nice set - and put them into a setting that has easy access for cleaning. I am in New York but will work with anyone !! The last jeweler we worked with was in California. Was supposed to be one of the best.

I have this same exact problem! I got this in 2008 and it has never looked the same as when it was new. I just put a bunch of stuff in the ultrasonic, cause... ew. LOL it's been awhile.

Omg! Thank you for sharing! How did it come out when you put it in the ultrasonic? It’s hard to tell from a picture. Better but definitely still with a dullness/film? It drives me crazy!!! I wish there was some way to make it better.

It helped a bit. But when I took it out the trillions actually looked darker than before because there was so much water in the gallery. I'll take some pics right now.

Btw I don't know what the true clarity grades are on this. When I got it the paperwork said SI1 but I think they are really I1. They still don't look the same, it is like they are grey diamonds now instead of G color.

Ok so thinking about this a bit more, I'm wondering if a waterpick or small pointed syringe could help flush out some of the gunk?

As you can see there is no way bristles can fit under my trillions. I might try a LONG soak with hot water Dawn to break up grease, etc and then some kind of syringe. Or maybe peroxide and windex? That just came up on a Google search.

I haven't worn this set in about a decade since it is from a precious relationship, but now I really want to figure out what will work.
