Good Luck!

In what way is that even remotely helpful?  The standards for spam posts are actually pretty reasonable here.  Generous even.   But at least TRY to answer the question at hand before you toss out an unsolicited link to your own site.  Twice in the same day.  Sheesh.

One of the first things most people learn about diamonds is that not all diamonds are created equal. In fact, every diamond is unique. Diamonds come in many sizes, shapes, colors, and with various internal characteristics.
 
All polished diamonds are valuable. That value is based on a combination of factors. Rarity is one of those factors. Diamonds with certain qualities are more rare—and more valuable—than diamonds that lack them.o.png
 
Jewelry professionals use a systematic way to evaluate and discuss these factors. Otherwise, there would be no way to compare one diamond to another. And there would be no way to evaluate and discuss the qualities of an individual diamond. Diamond professionals use the grading system developed by GIA in the 1950s, which established the use of four important factors to describe and classify diamonds: Clarity, Color, Cut, and Carat Weight.

And your point is? All of the information you posted above is available in the tutorials on this and many other sites, and it has very little relevance to the OP's question, which is over a year old (OP who incidentally seemed more of a shill for a particular brand of UV lights than anything else).

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.

I'm not sure you do.

Yes, there are many tests, some are easy other require complex and expensive equipment. No, the fog "test" is not one of the tests to do however easy it may appear.

 

However, I had no idea how to check the quality of diamonds.

And you still have no idea after reading this thread.

 

I do have a question for you, however: why do you keep reopening old threads, and posting comments that do not add much to the discussion?

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.

The best tools are knowledge, experience, and using the gemological laboratories appropriately.  It is unwise to rely solely on simple devices or tests.  If you are going to trade in diamonds to any extent at all, solid training is a must, and verification at the lab is almost always part of the process for any significant diamond.

 

I could not have said this any better myself. R.K.
