A Diamond is Only As Good As It's Worst Facet

The Walton Duo, Mike and Julie, had the pleasure of attending a GIA continuing education event hosted by The New Approach School here in Franklin, Tennessee.  The event, "Facet Definition: A Diamond is Only as Good as It's Worst Facet", featured a presentation by Mike Botha, master diamond cutter and educator, who in his forty-five year career, has designed, cut and polished some of the finest diamonds in the world.  Through the teachings of Mike and his son, Evert Botha, we furthered our knowledge of cutting and polishing diamonds and were even given the opportunity to facet a stone!
