  1. Some Facts About Diamonds Diamonds were used to engrave gemstones in India by 300 BCE. Diamonds can be burned. To burn a diamond, it must be heated to between 1290-1650 degrees Fahrenheit. House fires and jewelers’ torches can sometimes reach that temperature. D-to-Z color diamonds are the most widely used in jewelry, but diamonds come in all colors of the rainbow. For natural colored diamonds, blue, green, orange and red are the rarest; yellow and brown are the most common. Diamond weight is measured in carats (not carrots or karats). The word carat is derived from keration, the Greek name for the carob tree whose seed was used for centuries as the standard of weighing precious stones. Because the seed could vary slightly in weight, in 1913, carat weight became metric; one metric carat is equivalent to 0.2 grams or 0.007 ounces. The largest rough diamond, discovered in 1905, is the Cullinan diamond, weighing in at 3,106 carats (ct.)! Source: www.gia.edu

    Looking For A Natural Pink Diamond

    The term “certified diamonds†refers to polished diamonds that have undergone quality analysis by a trusted gemological laboratory such as the AGSL (American Gem Society Laboratories) or GIA (Gemological Institute of America) and have been issued a lab report, commonly referred to as a “certificate".

    Why Diamonds?

    There are lots of ornaments which are cheaper than Diamonds but still people do their best to buy diamonds. I know this could be a stupid question for some, but still I need to know. Does expensiveness of the diamond attract people to go for it or is there any other reason?

    Diamond For Your Dream Ring

    If I were you, I would avoid purchasing stones of such a high price without even seeing the picture. Online shopping is safe in terms of money transaction but still why to invite a headache by ordering something which you are not even sure about.

    My cousin used to have diamond which she would take care with her life. But her heart broke when she found that the diamond was fake. She died. Since then I have started studying about the diamonds. I'm new into this so pardon me if I do any mistake with the experienced people talking about Diamonds.

    I know how to identify the real diamonds. There are many tests which a person should know to do before making the purchase of the diamonds. The tests like Fog test are very easy to do. However, I had no idea how to check the quality of diamonds.

    buying a diamond ring in a pawn shop

    Engagement is one life-time event so I suggest not to compromise with the quality of the ring. Make sure the ring looks elegant. Don't bother about the cost. Just buy the best for your engagement and make it a memorable event.
