Mine Direct Facet Rough Bought Directly From Miners at Source! Our Selection is the Best of the Best. The Creme de la Creme. All stones are individually hand selected from miner lots.

Our Grading System On Facet Rough: 

We grade Facet Rough using the ‘VVS System’ and we were one of the first, 20 years ago, to start grading Colored Gem Rough in this way. We found this to be the most logical (and transparent) way of describing rough, rather than just saying ‘clean’. Most just use the ‘Eye Clean Method’ or ‘% Clean Method’ which is too vague. For example, Eye Clean in our view is SI-VS or lower. Putting a value on facet rough such as ‘VS’ or ‘VVS’ is more exact and we felt this system was fair to us and for our clients. Since all the stones we buy are mostly to cut ourselves, we thought, why not grade Facet Rough to finished result?

Therefore,

VVS-IF will cut a VVS-IF cut stone,

VS will cut a VS finished stone,

SI will cut an SI stone, and so on

We don't use terms like 'clean' as it is too vague or 'flawless' as a stone will ALWAYS have something in it even at x100!! We primarily buy rough from miners to cut ourselves but had a great deal of clients wanting to cut themselves, so now we offer out the rough first.

We Are One Of The Best Facet Rough Selectors In The Business And Very Heavily Experienced In Selection Of Fine Rough. We Are 4th Generation Gemstone Dealers.
