Just in general is it definitely more likely to shatter or crack if it gets hit, if it has a hole drilled into it and not filled?
Yes, in general it is definitely more likely to sustain additional damage with the right impact. However, diamonds are quite durable in general, so you may never have a problem. Especially if worn as a pendant.Just in general is it definitely more likely to shatter or crack if it gets hit, if it has a hole drilled into it and not filled?
YepSome diamonds are pierced/drilled on purpose, and not necessarily to remove crystals. For example briolette cuts are commonly drilled so they can thread the hanging device thru it.
Is that what you’re talking about?
The question is really a general question about any diamond. I've basically written that one off as a bad idea for my purposes but the question was inspired by that necklace setting style.I have been following your other thread but haven't posted. Is this still contemplating the 1 carat pierced Lightbox in a ring? I definitely would not do that. Unless you bezel the heck out of it- and I'd still worry that the setting process may be an issue with that.
