Truth or Fiction in the Diamond

wedding ring engagement ring diamond jewelry

Diamonds are a girl's best friend, right? Well, not exactly. Diamonds are actually formed deep in the earth's crust, not mined from volcanic pipes. And there are many different types of diamonds: colorless stones that go for millions on the market and fancy colored ones that have their own price ranges. So when you're out at the jewelry store looking for your next ring or necklace, don't worry too much about whether you're getting ripped off—just remember: it's all about what kind of diamond and what kind of cut it has!

The Hope Diamond is Cursed - Fact

The Hope Diamond is a 45.52 carat blue diamond that has been in the possession of the Smithsonian Institution since 1958. It was donated to the Smithsonian by Harry Winston after he sold it to raise money for charity.

The Hope Diamond is one of the most famous diamonds in the world, known for its incredible size and perfectly clear hue (which makes it extremely valuable). The Hope Diamond is also one of only a few rare blue diamonds ever found, making it even more valuable.

A One-Carat Diamond Is Worth $5,000 - Fiction

The value of a diamond depends on many factors, including its carat weight, color grade, clarity grade and cut. A 1-carat white diamond can be worth anywhere between $2,000 and $5,000 depending on these factors. A 1-carat yellow diamond is worth even less at between $1,500 and $2,000.

Diamonds that are set into rings or other jewelry pieces may also increase their value because they can be easily worn by the buyer.

All Diamonds Are Formed Deep in the Earth's Crust - Fiction

It's true that many diamonds are formed deep in the earth's crust, but this is not a universal rule. Some diamonds are formed in other places of the earth, such as in kimberlite pipes and mantle rocks (which contain ultramafic minerals).

Diamonds Are Found in Volcanic Pipes - Fiction

You may be surprised to learn that diamonds are not found in volcanic pipes. In fact, diamonds are formed deep inside the earth's mantle. This means they are formed under high pressure and high temperatures, which are conditions not found in volcanic pipes.

Diamonds Come in Many Colors - Fact

Diamonds come in many colors. There are not just white diamonds but also yellow, blue, pink, green and red diamonds. The color of a diamond is determined by the amount of colorless carbon it contains. A diamond with no colorless carbon will be completely opaque and look like charcoal or coal. This type of diamond is known as a black diamond (though this term is sometimes used to describe any black diamond).

A deep yellow tinted stone is also known as canary diamond while red diamonds are called pomegranates due to their resemblance with its seeds inside the fruit. Blue tinted stones are sometimes referred to as aquamarines though this term can also refer specifically to a water-blue colored gemstone made from beryl (a mineral species). Pink or rose colored diamonds were once very rare but have gained popularity in recent times due to technological advances which make them more affordable for people who want them

A Fancy Cut Diamond Is a Good Buy - Fiction

A fancy cut diamond is a good buy. Although, the price of a fancy cut diamond is higher than its brilliant equivalent, the difference in value is justified by the quality of light that it refracts. Fancy cuts have many more facets than their brilliant counterparts and this increases their ability to refract light.

A jeweler will usually recommend you buy a fancy shaped diamond if your budget allows it. But remember that there are many different options available when choosing an engagement ring, so don't be afraid to speak up if what they're suggesting isn't right for you!

Learn about diamonds!

Just as a diamond is the hardest substance on earth, so too is it the most brilliant of all gemstones. And like a diamond, you'll never be able to afford one.

The most valuable of all gemstones, diamonds are also the most popular and expensive. Only you can decide whether an engagement ring is worth $10 million or $100 million but either way your wife will be happy with her new right hand.

There are many myths about diamonds, but some of them are true. Some diamonds start out as rocks deep in the Earth’s crust, and others are formed from volcanic eruptions. They also come in many colors like blue, red or yellow. So next time someone asks what makes a diamond shine so brightly? You can tell them it's all about how it's cut!
