Diamond rings are the ideal rings of choice for engagement purposes. After all, diamonds are a girl’s best friend and a well handcrafted diamond ring is sure to make her heart skip several beats. Away from the regular diamond stone, how about switching a notch higher to the desired yellow diamond? This is a coveted and rare type of diamond in that out of a thousand diamonds only one meets the yellow classification specifications. Well, as with anything rare, its price is sure to skyrocket. That can’t be any further from the truth but have you heard of simulated yellow diamond engagement rings?
Through lab-created diamonds we can have equally enchanting ornaments at a more reasonable price. A lot of professional expertise and infrastructure is involved but it is nowhere close to the cost of mining natural diamond considering the environmental and socioeconomic impacts involved. As such, these lab-made diamond rings are available at a fraction of the normal real diamond price. These are high grade man diamonds that have next to perfect diamond structures as they are created in controlled environments.
There are various shades of yellow diamond. In most outlets the shade or hue determines the cost of the resultant diamond rings. By varying the amount of nitrogen used during manufacture, a variety of yellows is manageable, from the light yellow to the more intense as well as yellows with a greenish shade. The latter shade is rare and thus quite expensive. These rings are sure to captivate the visual senses of your spouse and leave a long lasting impression in the eyes of many.
If for a second you doubted the authenticity and durability of these simulated yellow diamond engagement rings, here are a few facts to take in. To achieve the surface hardness of diamond, a SP3 carbon layer is applied. This realizes an external hardness of 9.6 which is close to natural diamond’s 10 on the Mohs scale. This essentially makes the jewel’s surface scratch-free. Other than the almost inflection-free structure and perfect facets creation, an optical layer of TiO2 is added to achieve a refractive index of 2.46 which is close to diamond’s 2.42. This brings out the fire and brilliance of the stone in almost similar proportions as that of real diamonds.
