Jewelers on Why Melee Matters

As a jeweler, you know that to create truly fine jewelry, you need to sweat the small stuff. That includes the small diamonds. Mismatched or low-quality melee can sabotage all the work you put into crafting high quality designs. And sorting, grading and matching small diamonds can be a big headache too. The right melee can save you time and money and make sure that the quality of your jewelry really sparkles.
