TRANSFORMING DIAMONDS FROM ROUGH TO BRILLIANT AT THE FIRST "LEED" CERTIFIED FACTORY IN THE DIAMOND INDUSTRY
From mine to finger, the journey of a diamond is exotic, complex and fascinating. The art of transforming a rough stone into a polished diamond is a process that has drastically evolved over the last decade as the use of modern technologies has been extensively introduced throughout each stage of production in order to achieve the most beautiful, valuable polished diamond with superior light return.
Hence, today, diamond manufacturing is a subtle combination of scientific optimization and human craftsmanship that is still very much unknown to the outside world.
We take pride that each of our diamonds has been transformed at a certified Platinum LEED facility. LEED stands for Leadership in Energy and Environment Design and is the most sought-after green building certification program. Every LEED building is designed and built to very strict criteria ensuring environmentally – friendly operations and energy efficient workplace
CHOOSING THE ROUGH
The origin of a conflict-free diamond is one steeped in history, taking millions of years to form. Rest assured, each diamond has been ethically extracted from the earth by world’s largest and most sophisticated rough diamond mining, sorting, and valuing companies.
The impurities of the UID assigned rough diamond are plotted with the help of advanced technology. Our experts carefully examine and plan the best possible polished diamond that can be cut from the rough.
Before a diamond can be faceted, it is laser cut by precise and powerful laser beam set on the planned markings
Diamond Polishing is an essential and time consuming process transforming a faceted diamond into a scintillating jewel. Each rough diamond is different and therefore, each polished diamond will be as unique as the rough stone it was polished from.
Quality Control is of Utmost Importance When it Comes to Diamonds
Cut means how precisely a diamond has been made from its rough stone rather than which shape it has been fashioned into. Diamond cut is all about maximizing the reflection of light which overall determines the beauty of the diamond in the form of Brilliance, Fire and Scintillation.
Fire is the different colors that are reflected from the diamond. When the light enters the diamond from the top of the crown i.e. table, it is broken down into different colors inside the diamond that is reflected back from the top of the crown.
Brilliance means the amount of white light reflected by the diamond i.e. the amount of brightness the diamond have. When light hits the surface of the diamond, some light enters the diamond while some is reflected back from the table of the diamond, the light which is reflected back increases the brightness of diamond.
Scintillation is the sparkling of white and colored flashes when you tilt the diamond from one side to another. Scintillation is composed of pattern and sparkle. A pattern is the size and contrasts of the dark and bright areas which result from internal and external reflection. Sparkle is the movement of light when you tilt the diamond.
GRADING & CERTIFICATION
Atit Diamond Corporation’s Diamonds use reports that are issued by either the Gemological Institute of America or GSI which are among the most respected diamond grading organizations in the diamond industry.
A Diamond Grading Report documents the specific characteristics of a diamond including its color, carat weight, clarity and cut grade. A Diamonds grade depends upon these 4 objective characteristics popularly known as the 4 C’s: It is the relationship between these four characteristics that determines the value of a diamond.
