It is a good to see an interest being taken in our product and, interesting questions being asked. What makes a Rand Diamond a unique offering?1) Rand diamonds sources it’s rough diamonds exclusively from the Diamond Trading Company, the worlds largest diamond mining company. 2) Rand is the only company to exclusively polish DTC, guaranteed rough diamonds in a dedicated factory. Rand does not outsource any of its work. This means all Rand diamonds are 100% natural and in compliance with all U.N. resolutions regarding diamonds i.e. conflict free. 3) Rand conducts multiple inspections of all of its diamonds starting with the rough diamond, to ensure that the raw material has maximum ability for light return. 4) Rand Diamonds unique and proprietary Zero Tolerance ä cut attains perfection of fire, brilliance and, scintillation not found in other diamonds. What is the Zero Tolerance ä cut? We all know that each facet in a category of the best, high-end polished diamond is a mirror image. What you may not realize, however, is that within a category the angles of the facets differ. Rand cuts each facet in a category at precisely the same angle as the others. Every angle is identical; there is no averaging in a Zero Tolerance ä cut. The Zero Tolerance ä cut makes Rand diamonds the most beautiful. 5) Each Rand diamond has a unique Provenance report detailing the audit and photographic manufacturing record of the diamond and, a GIA report that cross-references the unique Rand Provenance Report number inscribed on the girdle of the diamond. 6) The entire Rand process is Audited and Documented.
