What Is A Clarity Enhanced Diamond?

When shopping for a diamond for a special occasion, there are lots of different kinds of shoppers. Some clients want the status of buying at a Tiffany or Cartier and want the finest quality because price is not an object. Some clients are shopping for the Biggest, Brightest & Sparkliest (?) diamond for their budget. If the later describes you, then seriously, consider a enhanced Diamond.

There are two types of inclusions in Diamonds. One appears is a little black spot, or several dots that are actually tiny crystals of carbon that are "included" within the Diamond and never became part of the Diamond. The other type of inclusions are microscopic cracks or fissures that are called "feathers." During the clarity enhancement process a microscopic amount of material is inserted into the part of the diamond that contains a feather. This material has the same optical properties as the diamond itself. When light travels from one medium to another, it either changes its course or reflects in a different direction. When light attempts to pass through a non-enhanced diamond that has a feather, the light hits the feather and reflects off in any number of directions. That is why we see the feather, and the diamond doesn't appear to be clean. With a clarity enhanced diamond, the light passes through the natural feather because the material used for the enhancement has the same optical characteristics as the diamond. The beam of light "thinks" it's still traveling through the same material (diamond) and continues its original course.

The revolutionary process optically eliminates "feathers", which are naturally occurring in most diamonds. The result is a more visually stunning diamond that you can purchase for significantly less then a similar-looking, non-enhanced diamond. Best of all, Clarity Enhanced Diamonds are totally natural and come from the same diamond mines as all other diamonds. The clarity enhancement process is not visible to the naked eye. Only a trained jeweler will ever know that you own a natural  Enhanced Diamond.

Does Clarity Enhancement "Change" A Diamond In Any Way?

No, it is still a natural diamond - it just looks better.The amount of material used to fill the feather is so microscopic that even the world's greatest diamond laboratory, the Gemological Institute of America (GIA) has reported that the clarity enhancement process adds ZERO WEIGHT to a diamond. 

Do I need to take care of my Clarity enhanced diamond differently than other diamonds

Absolutely Not.The Gemological Institute of America (G.I.A), after extensive research, has determined that normal wear and tear cannot harm the enhancement. Only if the diamond is exposed to extreme high heat or strong acids and bases, the enhancement may be reversed. In the extremely rare case that a clarity enhanced Diamond  from The Jewelry Factory should lose its enhancement, we will re-enhance the diamond at no charge, no questions asked. 

Every Clarity Enhanced Diamond sold by The Jewelry Factory has a built-in signature "flash effect" that can only be seen when under normal 10X magnification. The flash effect appears as a line of vivid color at the location of the enhancement. The enhancement can not be detected with the naked eye, nor can it be detected by most jewelers without a loupe.

As a result, a clarity enhanced diamond can offer you visually stunning diamonds for the price of 20-30% less then similar looking non-enhanced diamonds. You can either save money or purchase a bigger, more beautiful diamond, your choice.
