A basic Guide on laser Cut Diamonds

Laser Cut diamonds to many, is a new practice of diamond cutting in the jewellery industry. Because for many years, the only way to cut diamonds was by using another diamond. But because over the years technology has developed and now we have the benefit of  laser cutting. There are two techniques called laser drilling and laser cutting for diamonds.

Laser Drilling is the technique of isolating a portion of the diamond, drilling through it with the laser, which in this case is a very fine hole, and extracting the inclusions in the diamond, therefore heightening the clarity.

Laser cutting is simple. Using an intense laser beam to carefully cut out shapes in a rough diamond.

These kind of diamonds are very common these days, and this process is a faster method to get the diamonds out into the market.

Laser cutting has been used in many industries for cutting metal sheets, wood etc so is not new in those areas, but is definitely news to some people.

It goes like this. First the raw rough diamonds are sourced. Then they are examined and sorted according to size, colour, clarity, shape and susceptibility.

The region best suitable to cut out a diamond from the rough stone is located, and marked. This is to avoid as many inclusions as possible and to minimize carat loss. The diamond is laser cut from the rough portion, cut to facets and polished. These diamonds are then packed, priced and shipped accordingly.

What are the Pros of laser cutting compared to the traditional method?

The risk of it cracking because of pressure and inclusions are low. It minimises weight loss. And this process is not harmful for people handling the equipment.
