CLARITY ENHANCED DIAMONDS
WHAT IS CLARITY ENHANCED?
Clarity Enhanced is a process where a diamond with flaws is upgraded to appear clearer than how it was found. These diamonds are 100% naturally mined from the earth, cut and polished, and finally clarity enhanced. There are a few types of methods to make a diamond appear clearer:
Fracture fill – A special silicon-based serum is injected into the diamond to solidify and clear larger fractures (Normally referred to as a Feather). Can be detected by moving a diamond in a light back and forth to reflect a pinkish glaze within the diamond where the process took place.
Laser Drilling – Laser drilling allows us to reach and remove black inclusions that have a heavy effect on a diamond’s clarity appearance. Can be detected by looking at a diamond from the side view and search for a very fine steady line(s) that appears to look like a single spider web
KM (Special Drill) – A special drilling technique that is performed to reach an undesired inclusion. The special drilling looks like a natural feather rather than an artificial straight channel.
