CREATIVITY MEETS TECHNOLOGY

Diamond Anatomy

Diamond manufacturing is a beautiful concoction of art, craft and science. It is about taking the best of nature in its rough form, and applying the best of human knowledge to emphasize its unique properties.

CHOOSING THE PERFECT PIECES

Sorting

Given a diamond’s extraordinary uniqueness and rarity, at Sheetal Group we ensure that every rough diamond, no matter how small or large, is given maximum attention to bring out the most from it. The process begins with analyzing bulk parcels we receive from our portfolio of ethical suppliers. Every diamond in the parcel is weighed and analyzed by our experts to gauge its yield potential. These diamonds are then individually packed into traceable packets to ensure they are not tampered with. Once the sorting process is complete, these individual packets are handed over to the planning department.

CREATING VISUALLY STUNNING PIECES

Planning

Diamond planning is the most crucial stage of the manufacturing process. Every rough diamond may contain impurities that need to be omitted in order to create the most aesthetically pleasing polished diamond.

The challenge is that these impurities may be difficult to see given the rough and opaque texture of a rough diamond’s skin. This is where we use high end technology to create a digital 3D X-ray model of each rough diamond that highlights the location of these impurities. Using this model, specialized planners then simulate various shapes and sizes of polished diamonds within the rough stone through powerful software to bring out maximum value from it. The end result is a blueprint of optimally planned polished diamonds within a larger rough diamond. Directions to cut the stone are then passed on to the sawing department.

PERFECTION IN PRECISION

Sawing

When cutting a rough diamond into different pieces, a small error can result in a drastic drop in it’s value. At Sheetal Group, we use high quality laser sawing machines that precisely saw rough diamonds according to their desired cutting plans. The extreme precision offered by these machines allows us to meet the optimal parameters that compose a beautiful polished diamond.

GETTING THE IDEAL CUT

Bruting

Bruting is the art of shaping a diamond. We shape our diamonds using laser technology and diamond grit covered ceramic wheels. A diamond's girdle is the essence of it's shape. In the traditional bruting process, a motorized ceramic wheel gently brushes against the rough diamond until a perfectly smooth girdle is created outlining the diamond's desired shape. Alternatively, a diamond can also be shaped entirely using laser technology. Once the girdle is made, the diamond is ready for polishing.

GLISTENING. PURE. CLEAR

Polishing

Polishing is the final, and most fascinating step in diamond manufacturing. Diamond polishing requires years of experience and highly specialized craftsmanship.

The process involves blocking and faceting the crown and pavilion while meeting extremely precise parameters. A slight deviation from these given parameters may result to a sub-optimal light performance from the polished diamond. At Sheetal Group, we are proud to work with a highly talented team of diamond polishers who constantly deliver the best looking diamonds.

WHY NATURAL DIAMONDS

It’s The Journey That Matters

What makes a natural diamond truly special is it’s journey all the way from it’s formation to reaching the crust of the Earth. Every natural diamond is created over a period…
