Precious metals refiner and recycler Pease & Curren has introduced an upgrade to its premium stone-removal process, with improved filtering that is said to guarantee that all diamonds are recovered from their settings before the refining process.

The enhanced filtering process, which uses a specially designed container for stones, allowing even the smallest of melee to be recovered, is said to save man hours on stone removal and eliminate cracked stones. Pease & Curren is encouraging its customers to use its Direct Buy Diamond Buy service to get the highest return on diamonds, issuing the check directly from buyer to seller. According to the company, its customers received more than 35 percent more for their diamonds by using the direct buyer-to-seller service, as Pease & Curren does not purchase and resell the stones itself.
