Nucleus Created Diamonds
SOMETHING NEW AND SHOCKING IS HERE!
"These diamonds are extraordinary! It's a modern MIRACLE of chemistry, and ELECTRICITY." - Todd Keenan
In the past, all diamonds came from diamond mines. But we now have the ability to CREATE diamonds. Fantastic diamonds.
Introducing the Nucleus Created Diamond, available only at Everett Jewelry!
The electricity required is UNBELIEVABLE, but our Nucleus Created Diamonds are REAL diamonds, just like ice made in a refrigerator is real ice!
Created diamonds are identical to the finest diamonds mined from a diamond mine; both are simply pure carbon, under extreme heat and pressure- not even a jeweler can tell the difference!
You just get a BIGGER diamond for your money because the shape of the crystal can be controlled (a more efficient shape means they lose less diamond material when they cut the rough crystal) which yields a bigger diamond!
Diamonds always came from below ground; until a few of them came from above.
Those are the
most rare diamonds on Earth.
Created diamonds are diamonds that are produced in a laboratory. They are identical to geological (or mined) diamonds and have the exact same physical, optical, and chemical characteristics as geological diamonds.
HOW CAN YOU TELL THE DIFFERENCE?
It is impossible to tell the difference, even by an expert with a microscope. There are only a few very expensive, specialized machines that can detect any possible differences. As of today, only a few gemological institutes like GIA, HRD, and IGI can detect if a diamond is a created or a geological one.
HOW ARE CREATED DIAMONDS MANUFACTURED?
The two most common ways to create gem quality diamonds are:
HPHT (High Pressure High Temperature) process:
This process imitates the way diamonds are formed in the depths of the earth. A tiny diamond crystal is put into a chamber with carbon in the form of graphite and a metal catalyst. Under enormous pressure and very high temperature, the metal catalyst dissolves the graphite and the carbon atoms bond with the tiny diamond seed and grow into a bigger diamond. The tiny diamond seed can be a Created Diamond or a Geological Diamond.
CVD (Chemical Vapor Deposition) process:
In this process a diamond "seed" in the form of a square is put into a reactor with a combination of gases. With the help of a microwave gun, the gases are heated until they become plasma (a state where the atoms are separated from one another). The free carbon atoms are then deposited onto the diamond seed. The diamond seed can come from a Created or a Geological Diamond.
WHAT ARE THE DIFFERENT NAMES AND WHY ARE THEY CALLED DIFFERENTLY?
By law, these diamonds should be referred to with one of the following terms: Synthetic Diamonds, Man-Made Diamonds, Created Diamonds or Lab-Grown Diamonds. All of these terms can be used and they refer to the same product - diamonds that were created by man.
WHO MANUFACTURES CREATED DIAMONDS?
There are only a handful of laboratories throughout the world that have the technology and know-how. They are located in the U.S., Singapore, Russia, and China.
WHY CAN I GET A LARGER DIAMOND WITH CREATED DIAMONDS?
Geological Diamonds come in many shapes and forms and the cutter has to adjust the cutting according to the irregularity of the crystal, thus yielding a very low percentage. However, growing a diamond crystal in a desirable shape enables the cutter to get a very high yield; this is the reason that you can get a larger diamond for your money.
WILL THE CREATED DIAMOND EVER CHANGE?
NO - The Created Diamond is identical to the Geological Diamond in every aspect and will not change over the course of time.
WILL A CREATED DIAMOND HOLD ITS VALUE ?
Created Diamonds' value goes hand-in-hand with the value of Geological Diamonds. The prices may fluctuate as with any product according to the supply and demand. Experts believe that the demand for Created Diamonds will grow exponentially over the coming years. However, please do not forget that there is no guarantee for the pricing level. Take a look at gold prices and see how they have fluctuated so vigorously in the past decade to get an idea of how diamond prices also fluctuate.
WILL THE INSURANCE COMPANY COVER CREATED DIAMONDS?
Insurance companies will insure your Created Diamond jewelry exactly in the same manner that they insure any other jewelry that you own.
ARE CREATED DIAMONDS "FAKE DIAMONDS"?
No. They are REAL diamonds in everey aspect. They have the same optical, chemical, and physical properties. The only difference is that they are made by man in a laboratory.
ARE CREATED DIAMONDS CZ OR MOISSANITE?
No. They are REAL diamonds that were created by man.
WHAT COLORS AND CLARITIES ARE AVAILABLE WITH CREATED DIAMONDS?
Created Diamonds are available in any color and clarity that you would like to have. They start with D color, which is colorless, all the way down to M colored diamonds. They also come with fancy colors such as Fancy Yellow, Fancy Pink, and Fancy Blue colors. Created Diamonds come with all type of clarities, as well. They start with IF (Internally Flawless), and they go down the clarity ladder all the way to eye visible inclusions (I1-2).
WHAT SIZES ARE AVAILABLE WITH CREATED DIAMONDS?
Created Diamonds are available as small as one point and go up in size. Commercially today, you can get Created Diamonds up to about 3 carats. Currently the world's largest Created Diamond is 10 carats!
HOW DO I CLEAN MY CREATED DIAMOND?
You can clean Created Diamonds like you clean any other jewelry that you own. No special care is needed.
WHICH GEMOLOGICAL LABORATORY WILL CERTIFY CREATED DIAMONDS?
I.G.I. (International Gemological Institute) and GCAL (Gem Certification and Assurance Lab) certify Created Diamonds. Every Created Diamond that we sell carries a certificate and is also Laser inscribed with the certificate number and the words "Lab-Grown" on the girdle. GIA (The Gemological Institute of America) certifies Created Diamonds in a different way. It will issue a certificate with a general clarity and color grade. We expect GIA to change its policy soon and issue full certificates for Created Diamonds.
HOW WILL CREATED DIAMONDS BE APPRAISED?
Created Diamonds will be appraised exactly in the same manner as any other jewelry is being appraised in the market.
ARE CREATED DIAMONDS LEGAL?
YES - One must always disclose the nature of the goods being sold. By law, Created Diamonds must be offered and identified as Created Diamonds before being sold. The term required of full disclosure is one of the following: Created Diamonds, Man-Made Diamonds, or Lab-Grown Diamonds.
