New Kind Of Manufactured Diamond Fools The Experts

People have long associated home shopping networks, and mocked them, for their sale of cubic zirconia jewelry. But The New York Times Sunday reported on a new kind of diamond simulant, made from gases, that don’t be distinguished from mined natural diamonds.

The story in The Times’s business section was headlined “When Diamonds Are Dirt Cheap, Will They Still Dazzle.” The article describes a new process, called chemical vapor disposition, that creates gems that even the experts can’t tell aren’t created by nature.

The story then poses this question: Will the price of natural-of-origin diamonds plummet when the market gets these new types of diamonds? You decide.

    several thousand years ago, the most valuable substance on earth was salt. in fact roman soldiers were paid in salt., thus the word “salary”. i can only assume diamonds will go the same route. i can hardly wait to see them. the diamond industry is so bloody crooked, it cant happen to soon

    I hope so, it will stop a lot of the wars and bloodshed in some of the major diamond producing countries on this planet and oddly enough extreme poverty in those countries.

    I’ll always want the real thing. A certain pride is bestowed upon a person when they own something so special. And an imitation will never truly do that.

    ive been doing my research and these diamonds are already with us. they are created by Apollo diamonds at a secret location in boston. debeers has threatened to put a bullet through the owners head. suffice it to say, he looks over his shoulder a lot. many high end jewelers already have them and many DONTeven know it. there is a retail jeweler who has them, cant remember the name, but they are not especially cheap. check out APOLLO DIAMONDS.

    I can’t wait for them to get here!
