All About Diamond

“Diamond is a symbol of Eternity love, Courage, ascension and wisdom”


Diamond is a solid form of the element carbon with its atoms arranged in a  crystal structure called a diamond cubic. The diamond is a symbol of eternal love. They’re thought to provide those who wear them with a better relationship, balance, clarity, abundance and an increase in inner strength.  Diamond has the highest hardness and thermal conductivity of any natural material, properties that are utilized in major industrial applications such as cutting and polishing tools. They are also the reason that diamond anvil cells can subject materials to pressures found deep in the Earth.


The 4 C's of Diamond



1: Cut

 A well-cut diamond appears brilliant and fiery, while a badly cut diamond looks dull and lifeless, despite having a good color and clarity grade. The cut is the most important characteristic of a diamond and three factors contribute to a diamond’s brilliance: brightness, fire, and scintillation.  


2: Color

Color is a very important factor to consider. Rarity and purity are measured by a diamond’s lack of color. The ideal diamond is completely colorless, and the most expensive. It refers to the presence of yellow visible within a diamond. diamond should be in the colorless or near-colorless range for the best value.


3: Clarity

A diamond's clarity rating is determined by the number, size, type, and location of inclusions. Those with the least amount of defects will have a higher clarity grading. We should see the clarity of diamond almost all diamond contain some sort of natural inclusion 


How to Identify Real Diamonds


1. Water Test

Find a normal-sized drinking glass and fill it ¾ of the way with water. Carefully drop the loose stone into the glass. If the gemstone sinks, it’s a real diamond. If it floats underneath or at the surface of the water, you have a fake on your hands. A real diamond has high density, so the water test shows if your stone matches this level of density.


2. UV Light Test

Many diamonds will show blue fluorescence under ultraviolet, so the presence of a medium to strong blue confirms that it is real. If you see a very slightly green, yellow, or gray fluorescence under ultraviolet light, it may be fake.


3. Heat the Stone and See if it Shatters
Heat the stone with a lighter for approximately 40 seconds, then drop the stone directly into the cold water. If the stone shatters, it is made of weaker components and is not a real diamond. A true diamond will show no reaction. This method tests the quality and strength of the stone.

4. Fog Test
A real diamond has high density, so the water test shows if your stone matches this level of density. For the fog test, hold the diamond or ring between two fingers and breath on it with a puff of air. A light fog will form on the diamond because of the moisture and heat in your breath. If the fog dissipates right away, the diamond is real.
