Diamonds: From Rough to Polished
Diamonds: from Rough to Polished
We all remember the mining scene in Disney’s Snow White, with the seven dwarfs working their way through the ore in a mine filled with sparkling, shiny diamonds, right? How easy would it be if this would be reality: ready-made, beautifully polished diamonds sitting in the mines, waiting to be unearthed and set into jewelry. Unfortunately, not all rough diamonds are created equal, and they’re definitely not all pretty. They come in all shapes and sizes, and need to undergo a laborious make-over process before they become the sparkling, beautiful gemstones we love.
