Mr. Vikram Shah, Proprietor of Venus Gems has
been an integral part of the diamond industry for nearly 35 years.
He first started out with diamond manufacturing in 1979, buying
goods from Israel and Antwerp and producing polished stones for
export to the USA and Europe.
It was sometime in the mid 90’s he noted that many customers
are turning to clarity enhanced diamonds as a viable alternative
to un-enhanced diamonds, allowing them to purchase a bigger and
better quality diamond for a lower comparable price. Along with
a couple of Israeli and Russian scientists, he entered into a
Joint venture for the creation of a diamond processing center
in Mumbai which will use latest technology to improve the clarity
and color of diamonds.
Today Venus Gems is proud to service some of
the best names in the diamond industry and with our relentless
focus on quality and ensuring customer satisfaction we have maintained
a considerable lead over smaller competitors. The hues and colors
of the irradiated diamonds processed by us adorn rings and necklaces
and bracelets produced by many big jewelers. We have the latest
state of the art machines used for deep boiling , natts removal
and feather (Jeeram) removal. And our continued emphasis on technology
will provide the diamond market with the best diamond clarity
enhancing processes for the years ahead.

first started with deep boiling and laser drilling for removal
of natts from diamonds. Deep boiling involves using a mixture
of very strong acids which try and reach internal dirt in the
diamond via a tiny crack known as “open inclusion”
and removes it. Laser drilling involves drilling a hole on the
diamond surface to force out the inclusion; however this leaves
behind a crack which is easily visible under a 10-power loupe.
With the advent of better technology, laser drilling was stopped
and a new process known as KM Drilling was adopted. KM drilling
is a special laser treatment which does not make a hole but instead
expands the inclusion such that it creates a small channel from
the inclusion to the diamond surface, which will allow removing
the inclusion via deep boiling.
We continued to march on to adopt technology for
coloring diamonds. This involved irradiation of the diamonds followed
by annealing. Irradiation involves exposing the diamond to high-energy
particles in a nuclear reactor that alters the atomic structure
of diamonds resulting in the diamond changing color from Off-white,
LB and brown to a more appealing shade of blue,
yellow, orange and red.
Earlier the irradiation machines were located in Kolkata, however
due to the machines being old, the resultant color quality was
not very saleable in the market. Today we process diamonds using
the latest irradiation machines at their Gujarat center making
them the only company in India to provide turnaround in less than
24 hours. Our company’s client list includes DTC sight holders
as well as many of the biggest polished diamond houses having
Venus Gems introduced to the industry a premium
diamond fracture filling process. Diamond filling replaces the
air that normally fills breaks in a diamond with a transparent
substance that has a refractive index close to that of diamond.
The intended result is a much less visible feather (Jeeram) that
improves the overall appearance of the diamond to the unaided
eye. Venus Gems uses the best high quality filling compounds imported
from Germany, resulting in a superior quality and more durable
Venus Gems has entered into a JV with another jewelry retailer
to manufacture and sell loose colored diamonds for use in making
engagement and wedding rings as well as introduced its own jewelry
line which uses our own irradiated colored diamonds to create
stunning neckpieces , bracelets and earrings targeted for occasion
and regular wear for the modern Indian woman. Our catalog for
the same will be posted on the website very soon.
