For jewelers looking for well-cut round brilliant diamonds, it's as easy
as finding a good and consistent supplier. But those who are
looking for well-made fancy cuts may find that buying brand-name diamonds
is the way to go. Brand-name diamonds are more consistent than
non-branded diamonds, which means that jewelers don't have to spend lots
of time sorting through parcels to find well-cut diamonds, nor do they
have to waste time returning diamonds that are unacceptable.
If you are looking for a unique and different cut, branded diamonds are
known for their distinctive cuts and faceting patterns. Some brand
names sell lab-grown and treated diamonds in addition to natural
diamonds, so it's important to judge and examine branded diamonds as you
would generic diamonds.
