What is Commercial Gem Cutting & Why its Cheap ?
Commercial Gem Cutting Can be Graded into two Types of Gem Cutting
                      
                         1) Upper Commercial, and
                         2) Lower Commercial / Chinese Cutting


Upper Commercial Gem Cutting
Upper Commercial Cutting, is done in inexpensive Gemstone, They are in
acceptable range but not to the standard of Custom Cutting [High-Quality Gem Cutting Rates].You will notice in Finished Product ( Cut & Polished Stones ) Polish Marks, Lap Marks, and further  Facet meets / Facet alignment wll not be as 100% accurate, Further stones will be cut in very basic standard cutting, Cutter will not look for Color or Clarity while preforming the rough gemstones, they simply cut for the sizes of the stones. Color / Clarity Orientation will be very poor. Cutter will not give his 100% valuable time in Orientation of rough.., they cut in a moderate speed as because they have to produce a given number of stones per day. Upper Commercial Cut stones will look good when view naked eye, if stones checked under the 10X lens you will notice the problems which was mentioned above.

Lower Commercial Gem Cutting
Lower Commercial Gem Cutting, is done mostly in
inexpensive synthetic Gemstone which is presently offered in China, called "Chinese Cutting". These type of cutting is worser then regular commercial cutting. Gemcutters will not devote their time in orientation of rough gemstone properly for color,clarity or weight retention / yield recovery (stones will be cut, chopped & wasted ). Further  gem cutters will cut the stones in high speed, using Automatic Machines, regardless of its facet meets, facet alignment, polish marks or lap marks and stones will be cut with window (no light return). Polishing will be very poor  ( hazy & with many scratches all over the stones ) and some area of the facets, you will notice rough surface without polish. Further more, you could notice double facets in the edges of the facets (gem cutter acidently polish the wrong facets), You will also notice "off-shape", "Off-cule (Culet)", "off-table", "wavy girdle" and  in some instance you might be able to notice the "table" of the stones & "girdle of the stones won't be aligned parellal to each others. Basically these type of Lower Commercial Cutting is done with less facets ( like the cuts you see in rhinestones) Majority of these cuts done by un-skilled gem cutters (inexperience  cutters / Trainees ). Further you could get cheap cutting rates in China, but its consider to be a bigest disaster for Good Jewelers & Gem cutters.  WE DO NOT OFFER THESE TYPE OF GEM CUTTING AT ALL............ Its really a shame for a profesional gemcutters Frown.

When I look for Services & Products, I always go with a theory of 
WHAT YOU PAY WHAT YOU GET ! , I know nobody in the earth could sell "High-Quality Product and Services" at Cheap rates, too Good to be true. If someone offer you a cheap cutting rates you need to figure out what type of Product & Services you will get it (end result).

Hope this will be a Good education for you when selecting Gemcutters, what to look for.

WARNING !

We Would like to remind you some "gem cutting Factories" will offer cheap gem cutting rates & recoup their profits by retaining some of the better quality gemstone rough of customers ( by giving less Yield recovery to the customers ). WHATCH OUT ! don't get fooled Cry
