Because of modern technology, it is becoming very easy to replicate a diamond and sell it as the real thing. There are a few things that you can do to help you spot a fake diamond.
â€¢ Only deal with jewelers that have a good reputation
Always do your research before making a large investment, reguardless of what it is you are buying
â€¢ Ask to see the diamond certificate
If there is no certificate, the diamond is not real. RUN!
â€¢ Check out the piece that the diamond is sitting in. It is more likely that jewelers will not put real diamonds in low quality metals
â€¢ Look for scratches or nicks- Diamonds are very durable and will not usually get scratched or nicked (especially if its supposed to be brand new)
â€¢ If you decide to purchase the diamond, make sure that there is a return policy. Immediately upon purchasing, take it to other stores and get it appraised. If there is any doubt by the person who does the appraising, return it and report them!
It is almost impossible to completely avoid being scammed. The majority of the people in the world are very honest, but do not think that everyone is on honest. Use your best judgment in any situation!
Before you decide to spend your hard earned money on a diamond, It is important that you are aware of some of the scams that surround the diamond industry. Learning how to avoid diamond scams will possibly save you a lot of money and headaches.
It is usually very easy to scam people who want to buy diamonds. The diamond dealers know that not many people know too much about diamonds. We usually only buy diamonds a couple times during our whole life-time, and the diamond dealers also know that if they can make a diamond look beautiful and present it with the right sales pitch, they could get just about any amount of money from customers!
One of the most common scams used in the diamond industry is called the Carat Total Weight Scam. The jeweler places a tag on the piece that only shows the total carat weight of all of the diamonds in the jewelry. The tag should instead show the separate weights for each diamond! This scam leads the customer to believe that the diamond is actually bigger than what it actually is. Whenever you are shopping fro a diamond, be sure to ask what the total carat weight of the diamond in the center is. Another thing to watch out for is when fractions are used to measure the weight. The dealers are allowed to round up on weight, so just because it says Â½ carat, it could in fact be less than that.
Always make sure that you buy diamonds that come with a certification from a third party lab.
