Education is key when considering a clarity enhanced diamond for your custom design ring. Make an informed decision by reviewing the pros and cons of clarity enhanced diamonds.
For budget-conscious shoppers, clarity-enhanced diamond jewelry is an affordable choice. At half the cost per carat of a top-quality natural diamond, they represent substantial savings for jewelry buyers.
But before you look into buying clarity-enhanced loose diamonds or jewelry, make sure you know the answers to these key questions:
What are clarity enhanced diamonds? Are they real or fake?
Untreated diamonds with visible inclusions or blemishes are often used for clarity-enhanced diamonds. By treating these imperfect diamonds with a carefully crafted method, experienced fine jewelers are able to lessen the visibility of inclusions and blemishes, creating the appearance of a significantly higher-quality (and higher-priced) diamond.
How are clarity-enhanced diamonds produced?
Jewelers use several methods to enhance a diamond's clarity. One common method is laser drilling, which uses a tiny laser beam to tunnel into the diamond and removes inclusions. This method helps eliminate discolorations or specks in a diamond.
Another method to remove flaws is called fracture filling. A fracture-filled diamond is created by injecting a tiny amount of glass-like substance into the diamond's feathers, which makes these natural imperfections invisible. The amount of this material is so small that it doesn’t change the diamond's weight at all.
Will people be able to tell that my diamond is clarity enhanced?
To the naked eye, your clarity enhanced diamond will look blemish-free and dazzling. Only a trained gemologist will be able to tell. And to ensure your happy with the look of your fracture-filled diamond, our loose stones and custom design jewelry come with a lifetime guarantee and trade-up policy so satisfaction is guaranteed.
Is a clarity-enhanced diamond as durable as a regular diamond?
Yes. Laser drilling and fracture filling will not weaken your diamond or make it more susceptible to dings and scratches.
Is special care required for my clarity-enhanced diamond?
No, not as a rule. However, any time you have your jewelry cleaned or repaired, make sure the jeweler knows you have a clarity enhanced diamond. The heat from maintenance services can erode the filling so extra precautions may be needed to protect the diamond.
If anything should happen to the treatment of your diamond at any time, our lifetime guarantee ensures that we will treat it again at no additional cost.
What kind of jewelry is best suited for clarity enhanced diamonds?
The sky’s the limit. Our customers choose clarity enhanced diamonds for their engagement rings or anniversary rings. But we’ve also created pendants and bracelets that included enhanced diamonds. These types of diamonds are often chosen by people on a budget who really want a natural diamond in their piece.
