Cutting a diamond is unlike anything else in the world. The first challenge that presents itself is just how hard diamonds are. Diamond chips are used on saws that cut through concrete and steel because it is the only mineral that can stand up to that kind of punishment. So to cut the diamond down to the size needed to create the style that the jeweler is looking for takes precision, patience and practice.
Once the stone is the right size, the professional diamond cutter then has to fashion it into a specific style, like a pear cut, emerald cut or round cut. Some of these styles require as many as fifty or sixty cuts on the world’s hardest substance that is rarely bigger than a quarter of an inch across. Imagine trying to be that precise while shaping something as forgiving (and affordable) as a piece of wood, and now you start to get a sense of how challenging it can be.
The riskiest part of it all is making sure that each cut is perfect. One little slip and the value of that diamond plummets dramatically. Too big an error and the stone maybe lost forever, relegated to being turned into chips. Luckily there are experts who are willing to risk that every day, and their amazing handiwork is available to you from the professionals at The Diamond Supplier.
