A Comparison Between a Simulated Diamonds and Lab-created Diamonds

In the opinion of Beverly Diamonds experts, artificial diamonds are classified into different types like the lab-created diamonds and simulated diamonds. However, some sellers opine that both types of diamonds are similar in some aspects. They may look similar in appearance or even in the quality. However, there are some differences between them.

Lab-created diamond

Lab-Created Diamond is Hard to Detect

How to detect the lab created diamonds

If you examine a lab-created diamond’s visual, physical and chemical aspects, you will see that it is like mined diamonds because it employs various technologies such as HPHT and CVD during its processing. Many experts call the diamond made from this process lab-created diamonds.

Regarding gemological properties, a simulated diamond is the same as a lab-created diamond. Simulated diamonds only resemble the diamond stones, but are of different materials. White sapphire and rhinestones are examples for simulated diamonds. Recently, the latest model of simulated diamond known as hybrid diamonds was introduced.

How to detect the simulated diamonds

Diamond experts at Beverly Diamonds encourage customers to pay attention to properties of simulated diamonds before buying them. Although several features and properties are quite similar in both types of diamonds (simulated diamonds and lab created diamonds), it is entirely necessary to separate them into two categories.

Simulated diamonds are often observed with lots of flaws. The best way to identify a simulated diamond from a lab created diamond is by checking the hardness. The simulated diamonds are not as hard as created diamonds. Furthermore, simulated diamonds have an external coating that fades during time. A close examination will indeed reveal the coating or poor polishing.

Despite the mentioned flaws with simulated diamonds, there are certain areas where they can compete with genuine diamonds. Some of the latest versions of simulated diamonds, for instance, hybrid diamonds come very close to real diamonds regarding fire and brilliance. There are two different reasons why some people prefer simulated diamonds to genuine diamonds: the brilliance and the price. Latest models of simulated diamonds are as brilliant or even more brilliant than real diamonds. Besides that, they are quite cheaper than genuine diamonds.

If you are planning to buy a diamond for a lifetime, I would recommend you to buy a real diamond instead of going for a simulated diamond. If you still have any questions about rocks, consider reading a couple of Beverly Diamonds blogs and our diamond education page.

“I then set up my camera on a timer and ran into the frame for the nice photo of the two of us, then said ‘Oh, I’d better give you the necklace back.'”

Anna’s reaction was caught on camera, as you can see in the video Terry shared on YouTube. Anna jumped into her fiancé’s arms. But after the initial shock and excitement wore off, Ann told Terry what we’re all thinking: “Wait … Is it being in there the entire time? I could have lost it!!”

Selecting The Perfect Diamond Engagement Ring For Your Better Half

Nothing says “I Love You” more loudly than a beautiful diamond ring. Not only does the prized possession look good, it portrays true commitment, an essential requirement for a successful marriage. However, there are many different types of diamond rings out there, and selecting the best one that suits your needs and fits your budget is always the difficult part.

Selecting the best stone

When it comes to diamonds, it’s the 4 C’s that determine the characteristics of the diamond. The 4 C’s stand for Color, Cut, Clarity and Carat. Understanding these terms and what it signifies are important for selecting a diamond that would be worth the money spent. Diamond jewelry experts always mention the significance of these characteristics when purchasing diamond jewelry.

Among the 4 C’s, the most important quality of a diamond is the Cut. Raw diamonds are called ‘uncut’ diamonds and these are shaped in a particular manner such that the brilliance and the sparkle are brought to the gem. A finely cut small diamond would look significantly better and even bigger than a higher carat but poorly cut diamonds.

When you are purchasing from Beverly Diamonds jewelry store, you can be sure that every diamond is properly cut and sparkles in every lighting condition. If you look at Beverly Diamonds reviews by previous buyers, you would come across many people who are impressed by the brilliant cut of diamonds they offer.

Of course, there are many articles strewn across the internet that explain different colors of diamond and its ‘significance’. However, the truth is, most diamonds have a tinge of yellow and the lesser the tinge, the more valuable they are. Sure, there are rare diamond colors like blue and red, but these diamonds are only available at auctions and go on sale for millions of dollars. If you look through some expert Beverly Diamonds reviews, rarely do you come across any mention of colored diamond rings.

While Carat signifies the size of the diamond, the Clarity is another important factor. The clarity of a particular diamond determines if the gem has any blemishes or imperfections. The imperfections in the diamond affect the sparkle as well. The higher the Clarity of the diamond, the more brilliant would be the sparkle. If you look through the Beverly Diamonds reviews online, you would see that most buyers attest to the fact that Beverly Diamonds use the best and the highly rated diamonds only.

When it comes to shape and size, do not search for meaning and what it signifies and instead look into the aesthetics. Beverly Diamonds reviews by experts highlight that there are many different diamond shapes, from emerald, pear and oval to round and even square. So, consider consulting with some gemologist or expert when purchasing from diamond jewelry. It would of course ease the selection process and help you select the best stone.
