Imitation jewelries seem so close and so real that at first look you might think it is a real 18 Carat Gold piece of Jewelry. Chances are you might buy an imitation Diamond Ring or a fake diamond ring that looks just like a real diamond ring. So how will you identify and check that the diamond jewelry you are buying is real and not fake? It’s not so simple but not too tough too.

Here are some tips that will be helpful to you in identifying the difference between real diamond jewelry and fake one. Let’s begin the test!

Check for flaws

Real diamonds have 'flaws' in them which often creates a brilliance that isn’t easily seen in fake diamonds. Pure and original diamonds contain flaws that can be easily seen while on the other hand, even fake diamonds are made with due care, can’t have that much level of flaws. So you can identify the difference.

Take an inside look

Take your diamond in your hand and watch it like you are watching your crystal ball. Take a look inside, and you will be able to notice its components and its authenticity. Pure diamonds always have something inside. If you look into your diamond with a high power microscope, you should see tiny inclusions within the stones structure. If you hold the diamond in front of your eyes and look through its side, you should not be able to see through it, nor should it look to be one clear, unified color.

Testing with external objects

Okay, now it is time to go for a test! Take a hair pin or something like that, press it against the diamond ring, and see what happens. If pin breaks or gets bended then sorry to say but your diamond is fake because purest form of gold is 24 carat, which is extremely soft and malleable.

Check the magnetic attraction!

Place a magnet near your diamond ring or jewelry if the ring or the jewelry is getting attracted to the magnet then the jewelry is not real, because gold doesn't have magnetic properties.

You can also take your jewelry or diamond ring to any of Melbourne Diamonds Security Lab for a security / correctness check.
