Almost all of the suppliers we work with send us their goods practically unsorted. They may do some simple size or quality breakdown before sending in for their own reference. The reason why we recommend doing the sorting is because we understand what goods our buyers need and what assortments they will pay premiums for. There are also other variables that go into the parceling process for our auctions like size of parcels and total value. We are not in the sorting business, however we provide this expert service because it consistently brings much higher per carat premiums than the $1.50 p/ct we charge. Please note, we do not sort -6.5.
