How to Evaluate Rough Diamonds

I sometimes get asked about rough diamonds, and many of my clients like myself really enjoy learning about gemstones. There is a ton of information on-line about how we grade polished diamonds (the kind you see in stores), but there is very little information out there on rough diamond grading, especially good information.  This is a nice little “primer” about the process of rough diamond quality evaluation.  I would imagine most consumers have never even seen a rough diamond, and if they saw one on the beach they would likely kick it and keep walking.  Anyway, I really liked this article, so I thought I would pass it along.  Enjoy, David "Begin with the End in Mind: Tips, Tools to Evaluate Diamond Rough"
