RAPAPORT... Dallas-based The Diamond Doctor and Southwest Diamond Cutters have joined forces to open a “state-of-the-art” cutting facility.

The Diamond Doctor, a jewelry wholesaler and retailer, and Southwest Diamond Cutters, a firm owned by a fifth-generation master diamond cutter, will launch the facility in Farmers Branch housing 14 diamond cutters and support staff. Employees are slated to start there in mid-2016, according to a statement March 14.

“This new venture will allow us to manage the diamond cutting process, minimizing third-party costs,” Blank said. “Ultimately, the consumer will benefit by being able to buy high-quality, lower-priced products.”

Cutters at the new site will produce polished diamonds from rough cutting as well as from older diamonds that need refurbishing and recut to meet modern styles, the statement said. Once cut, diamonds will be certified independently and sold through The Diamond Doctor retail store in Dallas and through Diamond Doctor owner David Blank’s wholesale diamond business, which sells loose stones to the jewelry trade.

Southwest Diamond Cutters was founded in 1993 by current owner Ashley van Creveld and is “recognized as one of the top diamond cutters in the nation,” according to Blank.

Blank opened his wholesale diamond company in 2002 and launched the retail business in 2003 to sell diamonds at wholesale prices to individuals.
