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.
