How do you know if your diamond is real?
To the untrained eye, spotting a diamond can be very difficult. There are a few things you can do at home, with the proper tools, to help you identify if your stone is a diamond.
Use a magnifying glass or a loupe and look into the stone. If you see imperfections such as pique or inclusions, you may indeed have a diamond! If your diamond is set in a piece of jewelry, determine the type of metal. Diamonds are almost always placed in some kind of precious metal like gold or platinum. If the metal is costume, such as gold filled or gold plated, the stones will not be diamonds.
