Yossi Atuar, Diamond Designer, second generation in the diamond industry,
started his way in the field back in 1983. Atuar learned and practiced round
brilliant diamond cutting, diamond cleaving and fancy shapes diamond cutting.
Early on in
his work he concluded that traditional shapes
leave something to be desired. after
years of practice, he began searching for ways to realize this potential in
practical manners. in the beginning he used hand sketches and practiced them
thru trial and error. in the mid nineties he was introduced to a
computer program called GemCad and finally had the ability to design diamonds in a computerized environment.
After an intensive year of striving to develop computerized
and physical tools he successfully implemented his ideas in practice, which
eventually lead to the idea of Cutdesign, Diamond Design. simultaneously to
offering Cutdesign and diamond design services, he constantly strives on R&D for new
tools which better suite his methods and ideas. these days he uses Sarin systems to evaluate weight, and Ray
Trace and Global Illumination to evaluate optics.
The concept behind Cutdesign gathers momentum and at Atuar's
diamond designer studio, diamonds are being designed on a daily bases, both in search for new
shapes and/or improved optics.
