  • How does a diamond get from the mines to the stores?

    Finding the rough diamonds is only the first step. Once diamonds have been mined and processed out of the overburden. The rough crystals are sorted and categorized according to their size, color, shape and other characteristics. At this point, a diamond can follow one of two routes. The most common route is through the channels of DeBeers Central Selling Organization (CSO). Many people are familiar with DeBeers mainly because of their advertisements and commercials and because of the famous motto that they coined in the early half of the 20th century: "A Diamond is Forever."

  • Real Diamonds

    Real diamonds are worth their weight in Gold. They usually maintain a consistent value. It seems, if anything they are continually increasing in value. It is like gold and silver in that it is usually increasing in value.

  • What is diamond synthesis?

    Diamond is made of carbon. In manufactured diamond, the process of forming diamond from carbon, either by high temperature/high pressure process (HPHT) or by high temperature/low pressure deposition process (such as CVD), is commonly known as synthesis of diamond.

  • What is "laser drilling"?

    Laser drilling is used to improve the appearance of diamonds with dark imperfections. The most common procedure uses a fine laser beam to tunnel into a diamond and burn the existing inclusion, which is further lightened with acid. As this process is stable, all labs will grade laser drilled diamonds and indicate the process on their report.

  • What is a "clarity enhanced" diamond?

    Some diamonds with surface reaching factures are filled with a glass-like compound to make them look better. This process merely improves the appearance of the diamond compared to what it would look like without the treatment. It’s a legitimate process but jewelers are required by law to disclose whether a particular diamond has been treated.

  • Is a diamond a good investment?

    The answer depends on whether you are investing in the diamond itself, or in what a diamond represents. Diamond prices have been steadily increasing for the past 20 years, and diamonds tend to hold their value.

  • What is Diamond-like Carbon or DLC?

    Diamond-like carbon or DLC is an amorphous hard carbon. Since the early 1970s, DLCs have been produced for a variety of practical uses. In particular, the "Diamond-Like" term was coined simply to describe its very high indentation hardness, which is between that of CBN and the soft facets of natural diamond and is very dependent on the synthesis technique used to form it. A consequence of their amorphous structure and the deposition process used is that DLC layers can contain large amounts (up to atomic 40%) of hydrogen.

  • What is synthetic Saw Grit?

    Synthetic saw grit can be manufactured using techniques which emulate the natural geological growth of diamond. This involves using a high pressure/high temperature (HP/HT) synthesis process, which converts the soft graphite carbon into the very hard crystalline form of carbon - diamond. The synthetic saw grits from are grouped into three Series: the SDB 1000 Series, the SDB Plus Series and the DSNAD Series. Each Series is differentiated by its particle strength, particle crystallinity and wear mechanism, as defined by the Saw Grit Indicator System.

  • How does Diamond Fluorescence affect price?

    The impact of blue fluorescence on price depends on its notice ability. For some higher color stones, fluorescence gives the stone a milky white appearance, which greatly lowers value. Fluorescence often adds value to lower color stones as it gives the stones a whiter, brighter appearance.

  • What is a Lost Wax Casting?

  • Qualities of the Mineral - Diamond

    The diamond is the ultimate gemstone, possessing few weaknesses and much strength. It is well known that the diamond is the hardest substance found in nature, and it is four times harder than the next hardest natural mineral, corundum. But even as hard as it is, it is not impervious to damage. Diamonds have four directions of cleavage, meaning that if they receive a sharp blow in one of these directions they will cleave, or split... It has a broad color range, high refraction, high dispersion or fire, very low reactivity to chemicals, rarity, and is extremely hard and durable.
