Thank you for sharing this!

I am soooo glad you enjoyed it!
I never saw such big ones. My father, mother and brother were all diamond cutters, the diamond industry where lots of people worked in over here was in the hands of the Jews. But it changed when the work was given to countries where handwork was cheap and now there are very few people working with diamonds over here.
I find that fascinating! It’s always so funny — diamonds in the rough don’t look like much. Big chunks of quartz. Since I am fascinated by everything, I have no idea how one cuts and polishes such rough stones into such amazing jewels. Are any of your family still in the diamond industry?
A rough diamond is unrecognisable for someone who doesn’t know what you to look for. Both my parents are dead and my brother is a pensioner now. But he stopped cutting diamonds years ago as there was not enough work anymore as most of the work went to poor countries like Pakistan, India….Cutting small diamonds is easy, but the bigger they are the more difficult it becomes. A diamond cutter is not the first person to shape the diamond, there are more people involved before the stone can be cut, once it looks like a diamond they go to the diamondcutter, after he/she is done the stone can be sold or used in jewlery.
Thank you thank you for explaining this art! It is no small task, to be sure. But I imagine, these days, its starting to be a lost art.
WOW 🤩 beautiful pieces of jewellery and individual stones. Thanks for sharing. Keep safe 🙂
I can’t even imagine what some of those diamonds look like in real life. Could you imagine?
