Here we are briefly explaining each step in manufacturing a diamond from rough to polished diamond:
- Planning or mapping refers to of the initial idea of cutting a rough diamond for maximum yield. As technology advanced in past few decades, the current mapping software can analyze the rough diamond to the heart of the stone and design a sawing and polishing plan to maximize yield and profit.
- Sawing or cleaving refers to separating a piece from rough diamond to be polished as a separate finished diamond. Sawing is now done by high technology laser machines.
