How to Know if Diamonds Are Real
Learn how to know if diamonds are real. Most people can't tell if the diamonds they have in there position are real or fake. You can be sold a diamond ring for an incredible amount of money that practically isn't worth anything at all. Below you'll learn about what things to look for and what things can tip you off in telling whether a diamond is real or not.
- Real diamonds have cracks in them. That is to say that real diamonds have imperfections. They have have cracks and breaks on the inside of them because they are "real", this may sound ironic but it's the truth. Fake diamonds many times won't have these cracks in them or imperfections because they are phony. The only exception to this rule is if you have an absolutely flawless diamond and these types of diamonds you can rarely buy because they are too expensive or they are in a museum somewhere.
- Real diamonds have carbon deposits inside them. Diamonds are made up of carbon, but in the formation of most diamonds not all of this carbon transforms in to the diamond itself. Many times, using a loop, you can see tiny specs of black carbon inside the diamond. Fake diamonds will not have these deposits.
- Diamonds are not overly bright like some people think. People that make fake diamonds will usually make them too bright and shiny. They think that by doing this it will fool unsuspecting buyers into thinking they are real. They are right it does fool them, but it doesn't fool people who know about diamonds. Any time you see a stone that someone is passing off like a real diamond, it should be a warning.
