Is it a problem traveling abroad (to France) with a loose diamond? Should we declare when entering France and/or re-entering US, and will we have to pay duty?

Eeeeeeeeeeeeek! I do this all the time! I often take loose gemstones (including diamonds) that I''ve bought to have them set with a jeweller I know in a different country! I''ve just put them in a packet in my jewellery box in my hand luggage. I''ve never been stopped or asked about it but now I''m wondering if I''ve just been lucky?
