A diamond goes to a number of processes before it is transformed into an elegant jewelry ring like A. Jaffe
. When you buy a diamond, it will be the oldest material you’ll own because it took millions of years to form them under intense heat. It all starts with the discovery. Your diamond is likely to have come from any of the mines in Africa, China, India, Indonesia, Russia, Brazil, Canada, French Guiana, USA, Venezuela and Australia. It will be sorted out and graded before sending off to cutting centers. This is where a skilled cutter creates the multifacets
of a diamond to create the most scintillation. From here, the diamond goes through bruting
to grind the shape, and then polishing to create brilliance. Then it goes to the jeweler setter, who places the diamond or diamonds in the style prescribed by the jewelry maker.
