OUR APPROACH

Sourcing

Having been in the industry for longer than 4 decades, we enjoy great goodwill & a healthy relationship with sight holders worldwide. We source rough diamonds from the biggest and most reliable mines from around the world.

Assortment

The next step is assorting the rough diamonds. Broadly, we classify diamonds into the typical 9 intensities ranging from faint to light, fancy, and deep. We further classify them into champagne, cognac, and chocolate diamonds – the popular types of brown diamonds.

Cutting and Polishing

Next up is the cutting and polishing process. This step includes sub-steps such as cut planning, cleaving, bruting, polishing and blocking.

Design

The diamonds are then fine-tuned and a level of finesse is achieved in their design, making them look stunning.

Inspecting

All diamonds are now inspected. Inspection ensures that the diamonds meet all the required standards.
