JAGi Lab uses standard 42-plate diamond sieve sets to sort diamonds first by size, ranging from 4.5 mm (0.34ct) to 1.25 mm (0.009ct). Stones with a diameter below 1.25 mm are grouped together as mixed melee. After separating by size, we’ll begin the process of sorting and matching.
Round brilliant cut diamonds are sorted into categories based on appearance: white (H+, I1+), light (H-N, I1+), and dark (<N, I2,I3).
We have extensive contacts within the jewelry industry who are interested in buying your parcels of diamond melee. After sorting your melee carefully by size, color, and cut; we can offer the sorted parcels of diamonds to our network of diamond dealers and jewelers. For this service, we charge a modest 5% of the sale price in addition to sorting fees ($3/ct).
