How do you know it’s real?
December 4, 2018
Many times I am asked this question… how can one know that the stone you want to buy, is real… how do one determine its value? Why is one diamond more valuable than another?
There are a few common things to look out for, but it also apply to laboratory grown stones. They are technically the real thing, except that they were not mined from deep in the earth.
Unfortunately, it is not an easy answer. You need a qualified gemologist or diamondtaire to really identify the stones.
A qualified person would have studied and obtained instruments to do the different tests.
There are so many simulations and treated stones in today’s world, that even if the stone test is positive, to determine the value, you need to varify the different crystal structures and formations, possible treatments etc.
Call for an appointment and we will quickly determine the values.
