This was mentioned over at btd.com and I just wanted to find out if anyone here had one. If so I’d love to see pictures of it and how much extra you paid for the service? Apparently fire polish is done to the diamond usually after the cutting process to increase the fire in the diamond. From a video posted of Good Old Gold showing a diamond with that process it gave the diamond as much fire as a moissy according to one btd.com member and to Less as much fire as an Amora Gem.

@NovaRising: been around for awhile. Here is an “article” from 2010:
What happens when a Caltech engineer goes shopping for an engagement ring? (Besides, you know, a bride?) The sudden realization that if nanotechnology works on silicon, it also should work on carbon-based diamonds.
Diamonds before and after Fire Polish
After researching diamond cuts and learning about the late Ideal Cut mastermind Marcel Tolkowsky, Benjamin Gudlewski and associate George Maltezos tracked down Tolkowsky’s grandnephew Gabi, who set them up with his U.S. partner, Suberi Brothers.
Suberi now holds the exclusive rights to the pair’s patented Fire Polish process, which uses the aforementioned nanotechnology to polish the lower-girdle facets on a stone’s pavilion, increasing its fire and scintillation. It can be used only on natural, untreated round brilliant stones.
“There are lots of brands out there that claim to increase brilliance,” says Glenn Markman, executive vice president of Suberi Brothers. “But there is no other brand that even attempts to increase dispersion other than Fire Polish.” —RB

Thanks for the info. But does anyone else has a fire polish diamond?
