With an interest to look for beautifully colored diamonds is in a great trend. However, real diamonds in natural colors can be very expensive because they are much rarer than the traditional white versions that we see more often.
However, because of this interest and with the help of improved technology, the gem industry has found ways to make some of these “coveted stone that changes color” (which is also known as “pierre convoite qui change de couleur ” in the French language) more affordable.
One of the ways to make this gemstone more accessible is by applying treatments. Treatment is often carried out on stones that are brightly colored. Diamond treatment can improve color by turning colorless diamonds into bright and beautiful gemstones.
Diamond coating is another treatment that can enhance color. Therefore, it is important to ask lots of questions about the procedure and materials used, as well as the type of care a stone requires before buying it.
Another way to find affordable colored stones, such as those found in jewelry with chocolate or champagne diamonds, is to buy cultured diamonds, not natural diamonds. Cultured stones are still considered real diamonds because they are made of the same material through intense heat and pressure.
The process is only accelerated by being carried out in a controlled laboratory environment. They are referred to by many names including cultured, man-made, synthetic, or laboratory grown.
Visit a jeweler you trust and ask lots of questions about any jewelry you are seriously considering to find out if any treatment has been taken and what kind of care is needed.
