How to find out if your diamond is false?

 

How to understand if a diamond is false

There are some methods to understand if a diamond is false, so: let’s see them:

  • breath test

If you breath on the diamond and check two things can happen:

1  The diamond is false because it is steamy
2  Diamond is true because it is not steamy, because of its natural ability to quickly disperse heat.

  • The “reading” test

The newspaper test
The newspaper test

This test is very easy and there are 2 different ways for understand if the diamond is a fake:
Newpaper test: puts your diamond over a page of a newspaper upside down. Due to it’s structure you will not be able to see something but in case you see letters or a sort of them, we have a bed news for you… 

The "point" test
The “point” test

Or the “point” test, draws a point and puts over it the diamond upside down and if you see the point or a sort of, seems like it is  false and probably a Zirconium (similar gem).

  • The scratch test

Scratches test
Scratches test

The diamond, two to its atomic structure, is very resistant and durable to wear. We will not see a lot of scratches.

  • The water test

This test plans to insert the diamond into some water.                                                                                                                              If it sinks then it means it is not a fake, this for the reason that the gem has a high density.                                                                     

  • The mount test

The diamonds have a high price and due to this they won’t inserted in a frame of little value. So you have to look for some letter and numbers. If the mount it’s in gold there will be stamp or engraving inside the ring these 10K, 14K, 18K or 585, 770, 900, and 950. likewise if the mount is in platinum you will find PT or PLAT.                                                                                            In contrast the letter C.Z. stay for zirconia and these means that probably the diamond on the ring is a fake.

 

  • The weight scale test

For this test you will need a very precise weight scale that can measure at least the carats. For the reason that it is possible to verify the not falsity of the diamond because the cubic zircons weight the 55% more than diamonds.                                           consequently you will need a cubic zircon, so face confrontation if the veracity of the gem without comparisons becomes very difficult. 

THE OFFICIAL TEST

There are some methods that needs experts and “non-household” equipment, so let’s see some of them:

The X-ray test

The X-ray test
The X-ray test

This gem has the particularly characteristic that in a x-ray scan the diamond doesn’t appear. While materials like glass, cubic zircon and crystals appears.

  • The UV test

For this test you are gonna need a specific tool, the diamond tester. The gems conduct heat in different ways and this device produce hotness wheen is in contact with the stones. Subsequently the equipment will record how the temperature travels in the gem. 

For the reason that diamonds has a low heat conductivity, the machine will record a low “movement” of the hotness. Consequently you are gonna hear a “BEEP” and the light scale fills up but if this don’t happen you have a fake in your hand.
