The Craftsmanship Of How To Cut Rocks For Jewelry

Rocks and gemstones have been used in jewelry making for thousands of years.

Artisans and jewellers carelessly cut and shape these raw materials into beautiful pieces that capture the eye and captivate the imagination.

If you are in the jewelry business, you already know the importance of carefully selecting and cutting suitable rocks and gemstones to create beautiful and unique pieces.

In this blog, we’ll walk you through the intricate process of how to cut rocks for jewelry. We follow with true craftsmanship spirit to deliver beautiful-looking jewelry that lasts for a lifetime.

1. Selecting The Right Gemstones

The first step in cutting rocks for jewelry is selecting the right material.

Not all rocks and gemstones are suitable for jewelry making, and some are more suitable for certain pieces than others.

We consider colour, clarity, and durability factors when selecting the right gemstone for jewelry.

Common stones and gemstones in jewellery-making include amethyst, citrine, aquamarine, garnets, and others.

2. Cutting Bigger Stones into Smaller Shapes

Once the required coloured stone is picked, we cut them into small shapes.

But, not all rocks are needed to be cut. There may be two different intentions why a rock would need to be cut.

  • It is only required in situations where we want to obtain the right size and shape from a larger rock.
  • Where we don’t want to waste raw material and make the most out of it by cutting out the required amount.

And if the rock’s size, shape, and colour are suitable and it has the wanted colour clarity, we will avoid the cutting process.

3. Grinding Stones Further to Obtain a Final Shape

Once small shapes are selected, we will cut these small shapes to a desired rough shape using a machine.

After obtaining the rough desired shape, we cut to stone to a final shape carefully using another machine. All these processes are done with precision.

It is essential to know that the sparkle of the gemstone we are preparing depends greatly on every single line. Therefore this step is among the most crucial ones.

Once the small shape and curves are obtained, we will begin polishing.

4. Polishing the Rough Surface to Obtain a Shining Product

Polishing the gemstone helps remove the machining marks on the surface and gives it a smooth and shiny finish.

In addition, polishing the stone will help us obtain a more accurate gemstone shape and perfect its look.

Once the target design requirements are met, the polishing process is complete.

5. Inspecting the Final Product for Faults and Correcting Them

Our expert artisans inspect the final product for the last time. Each piece will be inspected by colour, cut, and clarity.

Once final, they are ready to be used in jewelry.
