To identify the best possible cut for each rough diamond, we utilize sophisticated software and laser systems from OGI, the world leader in diamond technology. Our diamond cutters use a OGI Rough Analyzer to assess the rough for its optimal cut and carat. Capable of calculating millions of cutting options, this instrument gives us a highly accurate, computerized analysis of the finished size and weight of the diamond before we even begin the cutting process. Finished stones are analyzed for cut and proportions using our Ogiscope® Proportion Analyzer. We also use a Megascope® with light tracer that can measure stones up to 24mm (up to 40ct in round stones). Both systems provide comprehensive analyses and can generate customized reports with detailed specification for each facet of the stone. They provide measurements that are graded according to the criteria of recognized institutes and labs.
