Korn Diamonds (1984) LTD. Calibrated Fancy Shapes Intricate diamond cutting and setting Customized for the luxury watch industry
Diamond Set Watches Can be set with diamonds worth from tens to hundreds of thousands of US$ Popular both as male and female jewelry Set with round diamonds Set with fancy shape diamonds
Round Diamonds Setting • No special expertise is needed • Only one measurement is specified - The diameter • The gold is visible between the stones
Fancy Shape Diamonds Setting • Different cuts with various measurements, such as width, length, height and angles. • Enables invisible setting: covers more watch surface, less gold is visible.
Popular watch settings • Setting in the Case (The Lunnet) • Setting in the Zifferblat (The face - Dial) • Setting in the Bracelet (The Band)
Going Against the Grain • Manufacturing to exact-ordered measurements instead of maximizing stone weight • Manufacturing unorthodox non-commercial shapes • More expensive than regular cuts (more material is being lost) • 25 years ago it took a client one year to collect stones for a single special watch bracelet!
Diamonds Cut to Precise Calibration • Diamonds are cut to exact calibration according to customer’s supplied technical drawing. • A bracelet can be finished within 2 weeks.
A Close Collaboration of Experts • Covering a zifferblat with invisible setting, “closing” a circular case using taper baguettes is extremely difficult. • The expert setters and the master diamond polishers work ‘hand in hand’ to achieve up to 2/100 of a millimeter accuracy. This is an advantage over supplying only loose stones.
Hi-Tech Equipment In order to achieve this kind of precision sophisticated machinery is used: • Computerized laser for sawing and cutting • Microscope aided setting • Digitized comparators and measurement devices
