From Rough to Cut

When manufacturing natural color diamonds, polishers have a more artistics journey when compared to colorless diamonds. Cut, carat weight and clarity take a back seat to color — the main factor in determining a stone’s value. Interestingly, for natural color diamonds, fancy shapes deliver the best color intensity and value.

“We have to find the spot of color in a stone and apply facets to reflect the hue throughout the diamond. The polishing strategy can keep changing during the process depending on how the material is reacting to your touch.”

Follow the polishing journey of a few of our stones and enjoy their transformation process.
