Importance of Design Experience

Posted by Ellen Hoffman on

Design is more than just how something looks. It comprises many other details, some of which take an expert to recognize.  For example, think about a diamond in a setting that exposes the edges of the stone.  It looks great, but what the unsuspecting person doesn't understand is that diamonds, while being the hardest natural substance, are simultaneously one of the most brittle.  So leaving the edges of a diamond exposed, especially at the girdle which is the thinnest edge of a diamond, is increasing the odds that the stone will chip.
