She is the perfect woman and you know you will never find another one like her. You don’t want to let you get away, so it’s best to lock her down to a long term commitment as soon as you can. What better way to get a lifetime commitment than to propose marriage? However, what kind of ring will make the best impression? After all, if she says no, you might not get another chance. Consider the many benefits that come with clarity enhanced diamonds. This is one of the easiest ways to increase your odds for a “yes”.
You can save a lot of money when you buy clarity enhanced diamonds. They are much cheaper than non-enhanced stones of the same clarity. It’s possible to save fifty percent in some cases.
What is clarity enhancement?
A clarity enhanced diamond is not fake or created in a lab. One should never confused clarity enhanced with artificial or faux diamonds like rhinestones or other diamond substitutes. In fact, they are not manmade or simulated diamonds. Clarity enhanced diamonds are naturally mined stones just like any other natural diamond. However, they contain tiny flaws called inclusions, and they have been repaired. These flaws are not just tiny, they are microscopic and they don’t change the strength or integrity of the stone, but they can affect a diamond’s ability to reflect light.
The clarity enhancement process
Not all flawed diamonds can be repaired. In fact, only a small percentage of these stones are candidates for clarity enhancement. To start, the stones are heated to about 600F. Next, a special resin is infused into the tiny inclusions. This repairs the inclusion by allowing light to pass through and greatly improves the sparkle and brilliance.
These repairs are permanent and that is why your jeweler offers a lifetime guarantee on clarity enhanced diamonds. It doesn’t matter if you purchase loose diamonds for sale or diamond engagement rings. The stones have the same guarantee.
What kind of enhanced diamonds are available?
You’ll find clarity enhanced selections in all cuts and sizes. Some are round, some might be oval shaped, and there are some excellent cushion cut diamonds that will save you a lot of money. These stones are graded and certified just like other natural stones, so you can be assured you are getting exactly what you pay for.
Do these stones need special care?
A clarity enhanced stone is just as strong and durable as ones that have not been enhanced. However, since the repair process requires heat, one should not subject these diamonds to intense heat (like with a soldering torch). If you buy loose diamonds and want them set into jewelry later, you’ll need to notify the jeweler that the stone has been clarity enhanced. This is also true when you require jewelry repairs.
If you need to clean your stones, make sure to use a brush with soft bristles and jewelry cleaner that does not contain ammonia. Clarity enhanced stones can also be cleaned with ultra sonic or steam cleaning methods.
Are clarity enhanced stones guaranteed?
When you buy from a reputable jeweler like Diamonds USA you will receive a lifetime guarantee on your clarity enhanced diamonds. Should you ever have any problems, they will be taken care of promptly and for no charge.
