Choosing Master Stones


We can select our own diamonds to send to GIA for a master stone report. It's important to understand that specific requirements have to be met before GIA will accept a stone as a master.

Choosing master stones is a task in itself. Unless you have a lot of contacts in diamond suppliers, finding the prerequisites required for a master stone will be difficult to say the least. There will definitely be a hefty premium on a single or a set of master stones, so be prepared for sticker shock.

Avoid:
  • Thick to Extremely Thick Girdles
  • Crown heights less than 11%
  • Pavilion depths less than 40% or greater than 45%
  • Old style cuts
  • *Damaged stones or dirty girdles
  • Medium to strong fluorescence
  • SI2 to Imperfect clarities visible through the pavilion with your naked eye
Accept:
  • Thin to slightly thick girdles (faceted is ok)
  • Crown height 12% to 15%
  • Pavilion depth 42% to 44%
  • Modern round brilliants
  • A stone without damage and clean girdle
  • None to faint fluorescence
  • SI1 or better, without dark inclusions

*Faceted girdles are preferred since gray girdles will collect embedded debris in pits caused in the cutting process leaving behind an unwanted color influence.

   Timepieces can be a trendy market but we have the knowledge and experience to bid quotes that satisfy our sellers and leave a small profit to run our business. We are not watch snobs so we have expanded broadly outside of the typical "we only buy Patek, Rolex and Cartier" mentality.

   We are consistently expanding our knowledge and buying power into areas that have been both interesting and very marketable. A few years ago we would have never guessed we would be buying high-end clutch bags and figurines.
