Mr. Clément, what was the biggest challenge facing the development of the WEMPE-Cut®?
Hans Clément: First of all, it was the challenge of finding someone who could do it. Cutting 137 facets is extremely difficult. Even completely clear diamonds can lose their brilliance if the cut is not perfect. In the beginning we had only one single cutter who could do the cut perfectly. In the past two years we have trained nine more outstanding cutters.
