Surely, there’s nothing that can compare to a beauty and elegance of a genuine diamond ring, but there’s still a room for a fake diamond ring, and in several occasions it’s much wiser to wear fake diamonds than natural ones.
Why to replace that favourite diamond ring, you may ask. The reasons are very simple. The first one is the price of diamond rings. If you do not earn a lot, there’s not need to spend the last dollar on a diamond ring only to put it on a shelf in the most visible place. The other reason is that you do not need to wear real diamonds in everyday situations. You’d better use fake ones, so as not to damage jewelry you value and adore. Wear genuine diamonds only on special occasions, and you’ll be safe.
Moreover, nowadays it’s very difficult to distinguish a fake diamond ring from a genuine one. Jewelers use fake diamonds a lot and they create rings which are very similar to those expensive ones which you can see in jewelry boutiques. With cubic zirconium and moissanite they create fake masterpieces which require years of experience to reveal their nature.
Cubic zirconium has been used to replace diamonds since early 1970s. Initially it was developed in Soviet Union as a heat-resistant material for industrial use. In 1976 it came to western countries and since then it has been heavily used in producing fake diamond rings.
Moissanite is the chemical silicon carbide. Although it has been known since 1894, jewelers began to use it only in 1998. It’s strange enough because fake diamond rings with moissanite looks better than those with cubic zirconium and cost more.
So, buying a fake diamond ring may be a good option for you. Anyway you should thing twice about what you really need.
But if you want to get a genuine diamond ring and you doubt about its genuinity, you should be very careful, as you don’t want to pay big bucks for a cheap thing. In this case, the first thing you should do is consulting with a trusted jeweler. It would take him/her a couple of seconds to distinguish a fake diamond from a natural one. If it’s impossible to tell the nature of the stone with a loupe, jewelers always have other special tools at hand.
