How to understand fake diamonds?
Diamond, which is called as the most precious stone on earth, is cut by 57 facies (facet, name given to the light-reflecting angles). However, it is a stone whose material value is also high because it has both its important characteristics and its great interest around the world. As such, it is very important that the diamond is real and whether you are going to pay a high sum or not. Well, how do we know if a diamond we want to buy is real? How do you understand the real diamond? In this post we will provide you with information on these topics.
Most people accept it as a fake if a diamond is imitated. But the real definition of a fake diamond is that something that is not really diamond is presented as a diamond. First of all, we should pay attention to difference.
Today, there are many stones sold in the market called brilliants. The most common of these are artificial stone cubic zirconia, zirconium silicate and white sapphire. After that, moisanite is considered to be the king of all the fake stones. The diamond is the easiest stone moisanite to sell, because moisanite is just like a brilliant diamond, shiny and has the same attractiveness. Apart from these stones, there are also diamonds produced in the laboratory. These diamonds have the same physical and chemical properties as real diamonds.
HOW DO YOU UNDERSTAND IF THE STONE IS REAL DIAMOND?
If you are controlling a diamond, if you can do it, there are simple tests you can do on your own. These tests can distinguish real diamonds from false diamonds:
Diamond Transparency Test: A real diamond is not transparent. The easiest way to understand fake diamonds is the test of transparency. For example, when placed on a journalist, the words appear foggy. This view makes it easy to distinguish it from artificial diamonds. There are, however, some exceptions to this test. For example, some diamonds may be shallow and may allow reading. Here, it is necessary to consider this point. The diamond transparency test can be done as follows:
Make sure your diamond is still loose (if not assembled) and then place the diamond on a newspaper with the culet side up. With a real diamond you can not see the words clearly. If you are looking through a diamond, the words should look a bit foggy.
Brilliance Test: Brilliance is a stone with unique brilliance. Stone cuts, cut rates and facets are designed to provide this unique shine. For this reason, in order to understand the reality of diamonds, what you need to look at first is the brilliance of diamonds. This brilliance of diamonds with a high fracture rate by bending the light passing through it is a feature that can not be seen in artificial stones. For this reason, artificial diamonds do not have as much glitter as real diamonds.
Diamond Reflection Test: Another way of understanding whether diamonds are real is through colors. The diamonds' reflections are in the shades of gray. If you are holding the diamond in the light and the reflections are creating a very colorful image (such as a rainbow), the diamond is either good or a low quality diamond. In addition, true diamonds reflect from all sides, unlike their counterparts.
Diamond Water Test: Another way of separating the truth from the false diamond is the water test. When it is put into the water, the stones that do not sink in the surface are always fake. When real diamonds are put into the water tank, they sink immediately.
Brilliance Mist Test: When performing this test, make sure that the stone is clean from oil, corn and dirt, and blow it into the diamond. When you blow into the diamond, the mist on the stone should clear off quickly. If the mist remains on the stone for more than 4 seconds, the stone is more likely to be fake.
Diamond Wear Indication: If the stone gives a worn appearance and there are too many scratches and nicks on it, it is a diamond.
Ring Material: A real diamond is placed on high quality gold or platinum. Diamonds placed on low-quality metals are most likely artifacts.
Also, be sure to find out whether the dealer has a diamond certificate. The dealer's logo, name, or diamond certificate with your information will be in your hand as the identity of the diamond you have purchased. Particularly 1.00 ct and above, internationally valid certificates (GIA, HRD, IGI, etc.) must be requested. It is a guarantee that you get a real diamond from a reputable local jeweler or from a reputable lab (such as GIA and HRD) that has a rating certificate from a reputable lab that reviews precious stones, such as a diamond. However, if you have taken the diamond from a special community and you do not have a certificate, you should have an independent, well-known expedition check that will certify the composition and its value by subjecting the diamond to thermal, weight and radiation tests.
