Below, we will discuss cutting diamonds and polishing diamonds.

The Process of Cutting and Polishing the Diamond

The process of diamond cutting and diamond polishing is a very complicated process, and you might ask yourself, how is it done? Worry not, we will discuss the steps in the following lines:

Step 1: Analyzing

The first one is the classification of the rough diamond. This must involve creativity, dexterity and accuracy. The diamond cutter looks at the size and shape of the diamond as well as clarity and crystal direction in order to decide on the cut. This step is very important in order to get the most out of the diamond and make it look the best.


The process of sorting the rough diamond entails the assessment of several attributes of the stone. The cutter is also required to look at the diamond’s inherent flaws and imperfections. In this way, they can schedule the cut to eliminate such flaws or arrange the flaw so it will not be as obvious and affect the gem’s value and appearance.

Step 2: Marking

Subsequently, a 3D laser is used to mark the stone appropriately for the intended design or message. It is critical to accurately mark the parts as even the slightest deviation can make a difference in the final piece of jewelry. The marker notes any defects and determines the most appropriate means of carving the stone in order to produce the finest diamonds.

It is during setting that the diamond is marked to pave way for cutting process. The cutter has to make the incisions and follow the grain of the stone, also depending on the further cut. This step helps in making sure that when the diamond is going to be cut, it is going to be cut in the right way so that it can be bright and there will be less wastage.

Step 3: Sawing

In the sawing step, the diamond is placed on a jeweler’s sawing spindle that is made of copper or brass. The marked rough diamond is then cut with a copper blade which is covered with diamond powder. This is a delicate process, which has to be controlled in order to produce a proper cut of the diamond.

Bruting is a delicate process that involves slicing the rough diamond into pieces that will make up individual gemstones. It is important to follow the marking closely because the cutter is going to use the diamond-coated blade for cutting. This step is necessary for forming the initial structure of the diamonds which will make up the final design.

Step 4: Blocking

In blocking, the first 17 or 18 facets that form the basis for the diamond’s symmetry are made. For smaller diamonds, this step may be the last one; for larger diamonds, the process will proceed to the next step of faceting. The larger diamonds go to the next stage to have more facets cut to increase the brilliance of the diamonds.

Blocking entails sawing away the primary edges that outline the diamond geometric and its symmetry. He or she must also make sure that the facets of the cutter are properly shaped and spaced in a correct manner. This step sets the shape of the diamond and brings it to a form that will be polished in the last stage.

Step 5: Polishing

The last step is polishing, or brillianteering, depending on the specific type of gemstone that is being cut. The facets of the diamond are refined and angulated to the most desired measurements. This step enhances the fire, brilliance or scintillation of the diamond thus making it more beautiful and valuable.

Diamond Polishing is a delicate process through which the diamond’s facets are gently worked to enhance the fire of the stone. The cutter employs specific tools to refine the angles of each facet, making sure that light is reflected magnificently. This step really brings out the sparkle and the fiery glow of the diamond.
