Today we revisit a great video that we featured a couple of years ago.
John Dyer is one of the biggest names in the gem world. John Dyer’s faceted gems are among the most well-cut I’ve ever seen, and you can tell a John Dyer stone by the tiny “JD” logo cut in a discrete place in the gem.
Video by John Dyer
I hope you enjoy this recent video by John Dyer which explains how a rough stone is taken through the cutting and faceting process to become a brilliant stone, which is then perfect for snapsets and wire prongs for use in wire jewelry.
After watching this video, I think we can all appreciate how much work goes into creating a beautiful gemstone!
