How Can you tell Diamond is real ?

What are Diamonds ? 

Diamonds are precious gemstones made up of carbon atoms arranged in a crystal structure. They are the hardest known substance and are prized for their beauty and rarity. Diamonds are usually colorless, but they can also be found in a variety of colors, including yellow, pink, blue, and brown. They are traditionally used in jewelry. Diamonds are formed deep within the earth and are brought to the surface through volcanic eruptions or tectonic movements. They are then mined and cut into the shape and size desired for their intended use. Check out what's available at Danny Newfeld Jewelry

What are 3 Types Of Diamonds ? 

There are many different types of diamonds, but some of the most common are:

  1. Natural diamonds: These are diamonds that are found in the earth and are mined. They are the most traditional and well-known type of diamond.

  2. Synthetic diamonds: These diamonds are created in a laboratory setting and are made to have the same physical and chemical properties as natural diamonds. They are often called "lab-grown" or "man-made" diamonds. It can be a great alternative for those looking for cheaper options that will not break the bank. You can find large variety of options at Danny Newfeld Jewelry 

  3. Treated diamonds: These diamonds have been treated in some way to improve their appearance. For example, they may have been heated or irradiated to change their color, or they may have had their surface treated to remove blemishes.

How can you tell if diamond is real ?

There are several ways to tell if a diamond is real:

  1. The most reliable way is to have it professionally appraised by a qualified gemologist. They will use specialized equipment to determine the authenticity of the diamond.

  2. Look for a hallmark or certificate. Many diamonds come with a certificate from a reputable organization such as the Gemological Institute of America (GIA). This certificate will indicate the diamond's cut, color, clarity, and carat weight.

  3. Conduct a simple at-home test. One way to test a diamond's authenticity is to try to scratch a piece of glass with it. If the diamond is real, it will be able to scratch the glass. You can also try the "fog test": breathe on the diamond and see if it fogs up. A real diamond will not fog up because it disperses heat quickly.

  4. Check for imperfections. Real diamonds will have imperfections called inclusions. These can be seen with a loupe, a small magnifying glass used by jewelers. If the diamond is flawless and has no inclusions, it may be fake.

  5. Consider the price. If the price of the diamond seems too good to be true, it may be because it is not a real diamond. Diamonds are expensive, so if you see a diamond that is being sold at a significantly lower price than you would expect, it could be a fake.

There are many different types of diamond jewelry, including:

  1. Rings: These rings are given as a symbol of commitment and are usually worn on the left ring finger.
  2. Earrings: Diamond earrings come in many different styles, including stud earrings, hoop earrings, and chandelier earrings.

  3. Necklaces: Diamond necklaces can be worn as a statement piece or as a more subtle, everyday accessory.

  4. Bracelets: Diamond bracelets can be worn alone or stacked with other bracelets for a more trendy, bohemian look.
