The Cutting process explained

Follow the Gem As It Transforms

Rough Icon

1. Rough

Gem material mined from the earth. Rough is uncut un-shaped natural gemstones or crystals, usually without excess rock and ore.

Preform Icon

2. Preform

The basic shape of the gem. Creating preform is a process done by sawing or using coarse abrasives to grind the gem into a workable shape.

Shaped Icon

3. Shaped

The gem in a more refined shape. Cutter prepare the gem for faceting by attaching it to dop stick with wax. The gem is them shaped with a higher abrasive.

Faceted Icon

4. Faceted

The gem with the basic faceting pattern. The facets are defined, but not perfect. There is extra material on the gem so cutters can polish it with precision.

Polished Icon

5. Polished

A finished gem. Cutters use a higher abrasive to slowly smooth the surface. All facets are polished with the edges meeting to form proper corners.

How We Cut Our Gems

Sorting Icon

1. Sorting

A specialist will divide rough into groups based on its shape, size, and inclusions. He determines what cuts the rough will become to maximize yield.

Sawing Icon

2. Sawing

Not every section of the rough is usable. Cutters will remove large portions of rough that have inclusions or color zoning with pliers or a circular saw.

Shaping Icon

3. Shaping

The cutter forms the basic profile of the gem by pressing the rough against a lap with low grade abrasive to gently grind the gem into shape.

Dopping Icon

4. Dopping

Preforms are attached to a brass dop stick with hot wax so that cutters can facet and polish the gem with greater accuracy and control.

Faceting Icon

5. Faceting

Cutters form the facets one at a time by securing the end of the dop in the tang and pressing the gem gently against the lap.

Polishing Icon

6. Polishing

After the crown and pavilion are faceted, cutters go back and use a high grit diamond abrasive to polish every facet.

Finished Icon

7. Finished

Cutters complete the gem by polishing the girdle and giving it either one continuous surface or multiple facets.
