Artificial and man-made diamonds – Are they an alternative?
Diamonds do not necessarily come from mines - In March 2017, a 155-carat 92 millimeter diameter artificial diamond was produced for the first time - this is one of the largest man-made diamonds ever. However, such diamonds are less intended for investors and enthusiasts, but z. B. for high-performance electronics.
It is unthinkable that a diamond dedicated to a woman should turn out to be “artificial”. The result would be nothing less than the opposite of what the gift was supposed to express.
Artificial diamonds have the same properties as natural diamonds, but are on average 25 - 50 percent cheaper - with a sharply falling price trend!
This is the ongoig case because these “stones” can be reproduced any number of times - theoretically to the point of complete worthlessness.
Sometimes the difference can only be determined in a laboratory. The authenticity of diamonds is certified for us and you by the 3 leading institutions such as Hoge Raad voor Diamant (HRD) or Gemological Institute of America (GIA).
After all, nowadays a large supplier from Austria with a Russian name must clearly disclose its "art objects" as glas. He has to mark his stones with an engraving that is visible under simple microscopes. Laboratory diamonds must also be identified as such in their documents – if they have any. And all this allows only one conclusion: fake diamonds are completely unsuitable as an investment.
