Are you among the one who doesn’t know what are the reasons that majority have started liking lab-created diamonds, instead of the real ones? Due to the exciting features of this cultured diamonds, they are booming rapidly in the diamond market. But what are these lab-created diamonds? As the name suggests, LAB-CREATED DIAMONDS are the man-made diamonds created in the laboratory with several advanced technologies. Their importance lies in their exciting features. Are you excited to know, what are they?

Importance of lab-grown diamonds:

1. Lab-grown diamonds are identical to real diamonds, in both physical structure and chemical composition. As they possess the same composition, these diamonds exhibit identical properties. Since these lab-grown diamonds are manufactured in the labs, the diamonds appear cheaper than a real diamond. You can enjoy cheaper diamonds of the same quality that of a real diamond. Thus we can conclude that lab-grown diamonds are cost-effective.

2. There are several colours that are available for man-made diamonds. A real diamond is always colourless but a lab-grown diamond starts with yellow shade. This is because of the nitrogen atoms who resides in the diamond lattice. When real diamond is exposed to heat and pressure for years, the nitrogen atom splits within the lattice, giving rise to a white light. But in case of man-made diamonds, the same colour of light is emitted by placing fewer nitrogen atoms or no nitrogen.

3. Man-made diamonds are available in various shapes such as Round Brilliant cut, Princess cut, Oval cut, Emerald cut, Pear-shaped, Marquise cut, Cushion cut, Radiant cut, and Asscher cut, just like real diamonds. So you can have the opportunity to enjoy these shapes at a low cost.

4. These are conflict-free diamonds and socially conscious than mined gemstones. As they are man-made, they have a low contribution to ecological effect.

Therefore, it is wise to spend money on this synthetic diamonds than on real expensive diamonds. What is your decision? If you are opting to buy a diamond for your loved one then we will suggest you, go and purchase lab-created diamonds. You will get the same impact as you would have with a real diamond.

You can easily use the real diamond detection tests to detect whether the diamond is a certified one or not. Before moving on to the tests you should have the knowledge of the four C’s of diamond; cut, colour, clarity and carat. Cut defines the brightness of a diamond and it gives rise to various shapes (mentioned above). We have already discussed the colours of a man-made diamond. Clarity defines the inclusions, though man-made diamonds are mainly flawless and carat defines the measurement of the diamond. These are all same for a man-made diamond. All these characteristics are present in a certified diamond. Now coming to our point, what are the tests that will distinguish the certified diamond from others?

You can easily detect a certified or graded diamond by identifying the grading report number which laser engraved on the girdle of the diamond. There are several other methods by which you can detect a diamond from fake ones. Since the lab-grown diamonds are identical to real diamonds you can easily follow the tests of a original diamond. What are the tests to detect diamonds?

Since a diamond possesses optical properties. Thus you can perform a refractive test where under the daylight. You can perform a dot test. This is a simple test where you have to make a dot on a white paper and placed the diamond on the dot. If you can observe a circular reflection then the stone is not a diamond. Similarly you can do newspaper test, where you have read the letters of the newspaper through the diamond. It is not possible to read letters through a diamond.

These tests are mainly for unmounted diamonds. If your diamond is mounted, then you can perform a fog test. In such test you will have to place the stone in front of your mouth and fog it. If your stone does not get fogged easily then the stone is surely a diamond.

Hope all these will help you out in detecting the true stone from a fake one.

Since then we are discussing on the topic lab-grown diamonds, but do you know how they are grown?

The lab-grown diamonds are developed from the tiny carbon atoms of pre-existing diamonds. Its formation methods are the mirror to the normal diamond formation. Either under extreme pressure or under heat, the diamonds are formed. Only the difference is that they are formed in the laboratory and the real diamonds are mined. In case of coloured cultured diamonds, when small traces of elements are available amid the development period of the diamond, just same as in nature, the coloured diamond is formed.

If you want to distinguish between lab-created diamonds and real diamonds you have to use specialized equipment that can detect the negligible differences in trace elements and crystal growth. Explore the Pros and Cons of Lab Created Diamonds too.

Guide to buy diamonds on Valentine’s day

By admin | January 24, 2018 | Category: Trending

Valentine’s day is knocking at the door. Are you planning a diamond surprise for your diamond?

Great! Diamond is the most precious and exclusive gift for her as well as a valuable gift for men. A token of appreciation! Best Ways and means to celebrate Love. A huge rush knock at the doorstep of all jewelry stores and that is the reason why the jewelers look this season as a season to earn. Very few of them will be there in the market just to serve best. This is the best season when you will be offered with a lot of discounts on diamond-studded jewelries. Along with this, you should be aware of the characteristics of a diamond while purchasing it…

What every buyer must know before buying diamonds…

If you are a buyer you should retain the basic knowledge of the characteristics of a diamond. Otherwise, you may be cheated on every purchase. A diamond properties depend on its FOUR C’s. Cut of a diamond, Clarity of a diamond, Colour of a diamond and the Carats. It doesn’t matter whether you are purchasing a ready-made diamond or ordering a customized one, you must be aware of all the facts. You should always keep in mind that the cuts of a diamond determine the intense brightness in it. The finer will be the cuts, the brighter will be its brightness. A real diamond when mined does not possess much luster in it. It gains its brightness and superiority by polishing and cutting finely.

Not only that, the shapes of a diamond rely on the cuts. These cuts raise a variety of shapes for the diamond viz;

Round Brilliant cut, Princess cut, Oval cut, Emerald cut, Pear-shaped, Marquise cut, Cushion cut, Radiant cut, and Asscher cut.

Majority of buyers rely on the round cut diamond as they find it more mythical and are easily available to them. But we would advice you to have a taste of the other shapes at least once. They all are now available in the market and all have their own myths and advantages. A diamond’s quality mostly depends on its colour and inclusions. A real diamond is always colourless and contains no inclusions. Inclusions or flaws are determined by the clarity. Inclusions or flaws are categorized as Flawless (FL), Internally Flawless (IF), Very Very Slightly Included (VVS1, VVS2), Very Slightly Included (VS1, VS2), Slightly Included (S1, S2), Included (I1, I2, I3). Flawless colourless diamonds are extremely rare and expensive in nature. They contain no inclusions or blemishes and give a stunning look. Internally flawless diamonds contains blemishes without any inclusions. The range of inclusions and blemishes varied from Very very slightly included diamonds to Included diamonds. Colourless diamonds are graded as D, E, F and they are rare to find. This the reason why the majority of the buyers are tilted towards the G, H, I graded coloured diamonds that is; blue, red, pink, white, and yellow colours.

Knowing this much is not enough if you don’t know the methods to examine it. You should question the person concerned to prove its quality. Now why we are telling you all this? Because we feel that it is the right of the customer to know what they are buying is the original one and not a fake. And the same right goes for the seller. There have evolved many duplicate diamonds that resemble a real diamond in both physical and chemical composition, and many traders trade these diamonds like Cubic Zirconia instead of a real diamond and gain their own profit. So it is mandatory for the sellers to guide their customers to buy the real one. You can ask them for a magnifying glass so that you can examine the number of inclusions in it. A flawless diamond is hard to find. So if there are no inclusions observed, then there is a possibility that the diamond is fake and man-made. You can recheck its property by placing the diamond on a dot made on a white paper. Under the light, if you observe a circular reflection then the diamond is not a real one. You can perform a fog test simply by fogging the diamond. A real diamond will never fog up since it has the property to diffuse heat. And after all these tests don’t forget to measure the diamond. Because the weight of a diamond really matters. Diamond is the hardest substance on this earth and it is always measured in carats. You can check its weight by heating the diamond and putting it into the water. If it sinks and doesn’t shatter, then it is proved to be a real one. Know in detail test to see whether the diamond is real or fake.

I hope we are able to help you to some extent. Now don’t waste your time, research on different deals and discounts offered, take an appointment and reach the store. Be the witness of the wonderful collection of diamond jewelries and purchase the best one of your choice.
