什么是抛光?

钻石的抛光谈论的是钻石的表面有多么的平滑。你可以在抛光砂轮上用更细小的钻石颗粒,加上更长的抛光时间来获得更高的抛光等级。

抛光重要吗?

我在这个产业已经工作了6年了,我为其中一个最大的也是最受尊重的公司,在世界范围超过10个城市的办公室工作,尽管如此,在10倍放大镜下我也无法分辨“完美”和“非常好”,甚至是“好”级别抛光的钻石。

从技术上来讲,“完美”抛光的钻石是经过更长时间的抛光,用的是更细小的钻石颗粒,但是事实上,如果在10倍放大镜下我都不能看出不同,当没有放大镜的帮助下,你就分本不可能观察到不同。

虽然在纸上写着三个“完美”,看起来是非常好的事,但是却不值得花费额外的费用。这就像汽车销售人员说服你多花5000美金升级,只是为了“更友好的座舱气氛”。
