Finish grading is divided into three categories, polish, symmetry and facet survey. Polish considers any surface characteristics that arise from the finishing process. Symmetry refers to the consistency of the shape, the positioning of the facets and the overall balance of the stone. Facet survey is an overall assessment of the number of facets and general appearance of the stone.
To achieve an excellent/excellent rating it is imperative that the cutter demonstrates focused skill while polishing the diamonds. In these elegant ear pendants, each of the eight stones have this highest rating awarded to them.
