Turning rough, uncut diamonds into the beautiful jewels we wear, is an intense and artistic process! Rough diamond crystals are remarkably unremarkable. In their uncut state they possess no brilliance. Without the craftsmanship of man, diamonds look similar to a piece of common quartz. It takes many hours and many steps for just one stone; marking, cleaving, sawing, girdling and faceting - each one critical to the quality and value of the diamond. Few people realize the time, intricacy and detail required to make the diamond on their finger sparkle the way it does!
