How to Determine if a Diamond is Real | BNT Diamonds

How can you determine if a diamond is real or fake?

Since diamonds are precious, unique stones, it’s important to determine their authenticity to ensure their value.

There will always be counterfeit diamonds out there, but you can avoid them if you purchase the highest-quality, verified diamonds from reliable sellers. Buying fake diamonds could negatively impact your investment, losing the money you put into that purchase and destroying your resale value.

But just by looking at a diamond, how might you decipher the fake from the real? Thankfully, there are a few ways to do so.

First, a fake diamond is heavier than a real one of the same size. Second, a fake diamond does not have the same brilliance as a real diamond. In time, fake diamonds become duller, contrary to real diamonds, which never lose their brilliance.

Additionally, there are a few ways to quickly confirm the authenticity of a diamond. A fog test is a useful method to distinguish the genuine diamond. A fake one doesn’t repel heat immediately while a real one does.

Now that you know how to decipher a real diamond from a fake one, you won’t be so easily tricked. Luckily, you don’t have to worry about authenticating every diamond yourself. As a service to our customers, BNT Diamonds can also use a diamond tester to verify if the stone is a real diamond. .
