Laser Inscription

wedding ring engagement ring diamond jewelry

Engraving the diamonds in one's engagement rings and wedding bands are one way of personalization that is becoming increasingly popular. I'm referring to engraving the diamonds themselves, not the ring's metal. Diamond engraving is a time-consuming technique that allows you to personalize the diamonds in your jewelry. It's a good idea to engrave a personal message for your loved one on the diamond to make the engagement ring even more unique. If not, check for an inscription of the GIA report number on the diamond, which will make it more safe. Learn how the interesting process of inscribing your diamond works in detail:

STEP 1: SELECT A SPOT ON DIAMOND GIRDLE

Although the procedure of inscribing a message or report number into your diamond is considered easy, it still necessitates state-of-the-art equipment and a skilled artisan. The first step in inscribing a diamond is evaluating the stone and determining the ideal place for engraving the customised inscription or certification number on the girdle. A extremely fine and accurate laser beam is then used to engrave a message or GIA report number on the girdle of a diamond; the inscription is no larger than a few microns, so viewing it requires a specialized magnification scope. When it comes to inscribing on the girdle, it's vital to think about the message's length and font size before inscribing on a diamond - the diamond's size should always be taken into account.

STEP 2: DECIDE THE LENGTH OF YOUR MESSAGE

It's now up to you to pick what unique phrase you'd like engraved on the diamond's girdle. It is suggested that the message be kept brief and sweet. Keep in mind that the report number will have already been engraved on the diamond by the GIA grading laboratory. Nonetheless, the diamond's girdle, which wraps around the circle of the stone, will have enough of room to engrave a personal message for your loved one. The diamond is put on a tiny jig before being positioned in front of the laser beam; this will keep the diamond in place while the laser inscribes the message on the diamond girdle. Before the laser engraves the phrase onto the diamond, the equipment will provide the artisan a clear indication on the screen of where the text should go in respect to the report number.

For the stone, laser branding is a fully safe and non-invasive technique. Because the duration of the waves in the laser beam ensures that they do not penetrate within the stone, using a cold laser avoids the danger of harming a diamond. Cold lasers, unlike regular industrial lasers, do not create any melting or cuts in the crystal. Any other beam might cause harm to the diamond, both on the exterior and within. Professional laser writing has no effect on the carat weight, clarity, or color of the diamond. After the marking is engraved, all of the laboratory's parameters stay unaltered.
