After weeks of work the diamond cutter has completed cutting the 23.86ct diamond. The final weight of the diamond ended up being 7.30ct. There was an option at one point to make it an 8.xx carat diamond but the clarity would have been lower so it was decided to reduce the weight in an attempt to bump up the clarity.
Here is the final shot leading up to the finished 7.30ct diamond, you can see in this photo the star facets are not yet complete but everything else is done… getting very close.
Looking great! The diamond is now complete, shown here with it’s baby sister. In most cases a rough diamond will finish out into one large diamond and one or more smaller diamonds. The remaining rough will be polished into a sister diamond at a later time, for now she looks great with the big brother!
