Rough Assortment & Planning & Cleaving
A gemstone’s journey to becoming a diamond begins from this stage. After rough diamonds are received at our facility, every stone is sorted or categorized according to its unique characteristics of carat, colour and clarity. Our expert sorters assess the potential of each rough and separate potentially flawless diamonds from lesser gems.
Planning is one of the key processes in analysing how the diamond would exactly look like as the end product. Our diamond planners technically visualize all the possibilities before marking the final shape, size, and weight of each gemstone. Natural facets like minor inclusions are creatively planned to enhance or add value to the diamond’s beauty. In the next step–cleaving–rough is divided into pieces to be finished as separate gems.
