2TRAINING OBJECTIVE1. To ensure participants are fully skilled to handle sale of Pure Diamond2. At the end of session the participants should have complete knowledge of Pure DiamondINTRODUCTION TO DIAMONDDIAMOND is the hardest substance on earth. It is a crystallized form of carbon.Diamond derives its value from 3 elements.A: Beauty : Diamond has adamantine luster, brilliancy, dispersion (fire) and scintillation (sparkle)B: Durability : Diamond is an extremely hard stone and cannot break easily unlike most other gems.C: Rarity : Its state the availability of gemstones like higher grades colourless & big size stone (Higher carat stone) are not found easily.Loupe – A magnifying eyeglass to identify a real class and real value of diamond according to 4Cs method.Diamond Tester – Use of diamond tester is for identifying of real diamond.THE VALUE OF DIAMONDS BASED ON 4Cs1. CUT: The way diamond is cut and polished is vital. It is the precision and delicacy of the cut that dictates the maximum amount of light the diamond will refract & reflect. The better the diamond cut greater will be its brilliance, sparkle and fire.Two types of shapes (cut of diamond) are:1. Round brilliant Cut (RBC) – 57 facets2. Fancy brilliant cut – The various fancy cut are Marquise, Pear, Oval, Princess, Baguette, Tapered Baguette, Emerald, Heart etc.2. CLARITY: Refers to relative position of a diamond on a flawless to imperfect scale. A grade of diamond is flawless to rejection.(The total no. Clarity Grade is 11) Flawless (F), Internal flawless (IF), VVS1 (Very Very Small Inclusion), VVS2, VS1, VS2, SI1, SI2, I1, I2, I3, Rejection3. COLOUR: Most diamonds look colourless but there are many different shades. The diamond which is more colourless, it becomes more valuable. The following are grades of colour: D, EF, GH, IJ, KLM, NOPQR, STUVW, X and Y, Z, Z+ (Fancy colour, Pink, Golden, blue, etc) best quality of colour. 3
4. CARAT: Carats are the traditional measuring unit of a diamond’s weight. One carat equaling 200 milligrams, in other words one gram equaling five carats. A carat is divided into 100 Cents (points) like one dollar divided into 100 cents, So the same diamond can be. The Carat weight, Clarity, Colour, and Cut determine the value of diamond. These parameters are called the 4Cs.They are Inseparable and combine indefinitely.1 carat = 100 cents or pointerSize: Below 0.02 carat is called “Star” size Above 0.02 carat to 0.07 carat is called “Melee” size 0.08 -0.10 +11&0.10 -0.15 Cents (+11 is a no. of sieve) 20Cents to 1 carat & Above all sizes called SOLITAIRE (But in GIA 1 carat & above Size called SOLIAIRE diamond) How to find an average size in studded diamond jewellery as below size 1.

An uncut, unpolished diamond resembles a large crystal taken from the ashes of a fire. Thediamond cutter decides the final shape for the cut stone. Some possible shapes (top and sideviews shown) are these: Round Brilliant Emerald Cut Baguette Cut Marquise Cut Cut Oval Cut Flanders Cut Princess Cut Pear Cut Diamond CuttingDiamonds can be cleaved or sawn. Cleaving takes a few seconds but it must be done with thegrain or the stone will break roughly and be ruined.Most diamonds are sawn. In the sawing process, a bronze blade impregnated with diamonddust spins at high speed to gradually cut through the stone. To saw through a one-carat
diamond might take eight hours. Diamonds can also be cut with a laser. After cleaving orsawing is complete, the faceting takes place. FacetingFaceting — cutting planes or faces onto the surface of the stone — is done with mosttransparent gemstones. The purpose is to let light pass through and be reflected and refractedfrom faces on the back of the stone. Faceted cuts are precisely designed to show off the gemto best advantage. The diagram shows the facets of a round stone.For a discussion of the importance of good proportions in a faceted diamond, see The 4 Cs ofDiamonds: Cut Proportions.In faceting a diamond, waste is unavoidable. The average weight loss is about 50% percent,though more or less of the rough may be lost based on cutting proportions. Poorlyproportioned stones retain more weight while the best proportions require greater loss ofweight. Diamond price can vary as much as 50% between two stones, equal in all respectsexcept cut proportions. Where diamonds are cutMajor cutting industries are in: • Antwerp and Tel Aviv, where many of the fancy shapes — pear shaped, marquise, etc. — are cut; • New York City, where many of the larger (3-10 carat) diamonds are cut; • Bombay, where, because of low labor costs, most smaller and lower quality stones are cut; and • Russia, which specializes in cutting stones from its own mines, which produce much of the worlds higher-valued rough diamond.
Round Brilliant: The most common style of cutting both diamonds and colored stones. Thestandard round brilliant consists of 57 facets; 1 table, 8 bezel facets, 8 star facets 16 upper-girdlefacets on the crown; 8 pavilion facets, 16 lower girdle facets; and usually a culet on the pavilion.Modifications of the round brilliant include such fancy shapes as the marquise, half moon, pear shapeand many others. Pear: A variation of the Brilliant cut, combining the Round and Marquise cuts, with 58 facetsto only 56 facets (when the pavilion facets at the head and tail are eliminated). Shoulders shouldhave a gently but distinctly rounded arch. Common length-to-width ratio: 1 to 1.50-1.75. Oval: A brilliant style of cutting very similar to a Round except it is elliptical. It was inventedby Lazare Kaplan in the early 1960s. Oval brilliant usually has 56 or 57 facets. Beware of uneven orhigh shoulders (they should have a gently but distinctly rounded arch). Typical length-to-width ratio: 1to 1.30-1.65. Marquise: This shape has a boat shaped girdle with 57 facets. The shape and placement ofthe facets is of the brilliant type. The name "Marquise" came from a legend of the Marquise ofPompadour that the Sun King wanted a Diamond to be polished into the shape of the mouth of theMarquise. Look for uneven "wings" or undefined points. Typical length-to-width ratio: 1 to 1.75-2.25. Emerald: This 50 facet shape is usually A form of step cutting. It is usually rectangularbut sometimes may be square (referred to as "Asscher" cut), in which case it is known as a squareemerald cut. It has rows (steps) of elongated facets on the crown and pavilion, parallel to the girdle,and with corner facets. The number of rows of elongated facets may vary, although the usual numberis three on the crown and three on the pavilion. Inclusions are slightly more visible in "step-cut"shapes relative to "brilliant styles. Look for too narrow or missing corners. The beveled cornersprotect the stone and make it easier to set. Typical length-to-width ratio: 1 to 1.30-1.70. Princess (also the patented Quadrillion): Is a relatively new shape and generally has 70 to76 facets (no culet). Normally it is close to a square shape (+ or - 10%), but may come in elongatedversions. Watch out for girdles which are extremely thin and thus prone to chipping. Typical length-to-width ratio: 1 to 1.00-1.10. Radiant: Rectangular or square stone with cut corners. The original patented cut has 70
ROUND This 58 facet symmetrical shape can display the greatest amount of sparkle with a balance between the amount of white flashes of light and colored flashes of light. It is the benchmark shape all others are compared to and the only one that has internationally recognized cut grades. Generally, rounds are the most expensive but can offer the greatest amount of sparkle per dollar. FANCY SHAPESThese shapes are usually less expensive because the rough diamonds used to produce them are more common andgenerally less costly. Over the past 20 years, new shapes and facet arrangements have been introduced to increasethe use, appeal and value of rough diamonds that would be traditionally difficult to market.Choosing a properly proportioned fancy shaped diamond is much more complex than a round shape. Most fancyshapes cannot sparkle like a well-cut round. The facets of fancy shaped diamonds are elongated, asymmetrical, andcan deviate greatly from the ideal, causing light to leak out the diamonds bottom. This also causes small multi-colored flashes of light to be concentrated in pointed areas and larger flashes to occur in rounded or elongatedareas.A "bowtie" shaped area of diminished sparkle can span the center width of most fancy shapes. This consequence hasthe least negative effect when it is narrow and very light gray (it is rarely colorless or invisible). A dark andpronounced bowtie will decrease the value and beauty by more than 20%.Another important consideration unique to fancy shapes is the length and width ratio (L: W), calculated by dividingthe diamonds length by the diamonds width. Many other considerations are structural deficiencies such as thinedges near pointed areas and uneven or bulged shape outlines.
Unlike round diamonds, cut grades of fancy shapes do not exist. We employ sophisticated methods that accuratelypredict and demonstrate how the sparkle of one set of ratios and proportions will compare quantitatively to another.Less desirable fat or thin shapes are produced from irregular (and less costly) shaped rough diamonds. They arealso produced by cutters who intentionally grind as little of the rough diamond away as possible to retain excessweight for higher profits. This excess weight and material does not contribute to beauty and therefore should notcontribute to higher value.You will find our expertise to be very helpful in choosing any fancy shape as well as a round diamond.
OVALThis 57 facet shape is an elongated round and therefore displays a similar kindof sparkle. Avoid squarish stones. An ovals preferred L: W ratio is 1.33:1 -1.66:1Ratio 1:1.25 Ratio 1:1.33 Ratio 1:1.50 Ratio 1:1.66 Ratio 1:1.75MARQUISEThis 58-facet shape is most sought after with a L: W ratio of 2:1. Doublingsome of the facets in the pavilion minimizes the bowtie effect. Marquises withL: W ratios of near 1.75:1 or 2.25:1 are in higher supply and less expensive.Look out for sharp girdle edges and thin end points, which could make thisshape diamond prone to damage.Ratio 1:1.50 Ratio 1:1.75 Ratio 1:2.00. Ratio 1:2.25 Ratio 1:2.33
