Every diamond has its own individual properties unique to only itself. After they are mined out, the rough diamonds are divided into gem quality diamonds, industrial diamonds, and crushing-boart or boart diamonds Further, the production is thus sorted and grouped accordingly as per carat, cut, clarity, and color.
Planning a diamond is the first step towards architecting a diamond. Diamond Planning and Marking is considered as the heart of diamond crafting process. As per the inclusion size, and inclusion position and number, the diamond is planned.
Laser cutting assures smooth cutting of the diamond surface with least chances of breakage in diamond even with high tension in rough diamond.
This is the most important step in the diamond crafting journey as it requires a lot of precision. Diamonds are faceted on a scaife (polishing wheel) rotating at 2500 RPM under a load of the order of 1 kg. The polishing wheel rubs off the unwanted rough diamond to powder, thus making the diamond surface sparkle.
The final polished diamonds are graded and certified by the gemological laboratories around the world as per their individual standards. The labs use highly sophisticated and precision-controlled instruments to determine if the diamonds are of said quality and if they have any treatment done on them.
By integrating Quality and Traceability, with the core vision of having long-term Sustainability, The Footprints is committed to ensure Pure Transparency across our value chain.
