Cheap Rings? A diamond?

 

Cheap rings for men vs Diamond

How to tell if a diamond is real?

Read it a story…

Cheap rings for men made from cubic zirconium or even rhinestone are clearer than diamond.  “But how can i tell if its a real diamond vs cheap jewelry for men”, you ask?  Well, the quickest way is to read the fine print.  Get a book, open it to a random page and set the flat top of your cheap ring down on a word. If you can read even a single letter through the stone, a diamond it is not.  Diamonds are too dense to read through.

Of course we’ve all heard it said that to answer the question, “Is it a diamond or cheap rings for men/ fashion jewelry?”, you can write on some glass with it(DON’T).   You know, because diamonds are harder than cheap jewelry for men and can cut glass.  In fact, low-cost diamonds ARE used to cut glass and being a 10 on the mohs scale of hardness, they may be best cut out for the job. Though tungsten carbide is a 9 on the mohs scale. And tungsten carbide tipped glass cutting tools are fairly common.

And that proves my point; many things can scratch glass.  GLASS can scratch glass.  Just think how careful you have to be not to scratch your sunglasses.  And if the stone in question isn’t a diamond after all?  Its a beautiful, cool cheap rings-for-boys type cheaply bought ring.  Would you want to damage a perfectly good piece of cheaper good quality jewelry?

Real vs fake diamond: Earth

The Grinder Method…

And though many things can scratch glass, what can scratch diamond rings for girls?  Pretty much nothing except another diamond.  This is probably the parallel truth that gave rise to people writing on glass with their cheap rings stones.  If you have a good way to secure the stone you can use a cutting wheel in a grinder to try and scratch the rock in question.  Just take great care that the cutting wheel isn’t part diamond(yeah, that’s common, actually).  It must be made of a different earth material.  If the wheel is diamond crusted its going to scratch everything.  if the stone gets scratched then its a cheap ring.

Another method to test your diamond: Light

Ask the rainbow…

Leave that cheap-jewelry- for-men ring sitting on that book and then shine a light through it while turning it some.  See a rainbow?  A rainbow is caused by a prism, sometimes raindrops or glass, that refracts the light.  The light is broken down into its various component colors.  As stated earlier, a diamond is very dense and reflects the light rather than refracting it.  A diamond will not cause a rainbow effect.  See rainbow, see cheap mens jewelry.  It WILL produce various points of intense white light.  Think laser, not rainbow. See colors, don’t see diamond.  Affordably cool but inexpensive jewelry.

There are other precious stones often used in less expensive jewelry that might be sold as cheap rings for men by accident.  White sapphire, white topaz often look like diamonds and have to be tested by an expert.  A red diamond ring would be mistaken by most people as mens cheap jewelry.  It might even be sold at a cheap man rings store or given for budget friendly jewelry.  When in fact red is the rarest of them all. But in reality most diamonds probably aren’t discovered yet and may spend all eternity at the bottom of a fish tank or getting kicked down the street in the ‘hood. And who’s to say what makes cheap jewelry In the first place?  The art that goes into design counts for a lot.  There are some decorated chicken eggs in Russia that are valued beyond anything.  True story.

Fog it up: Air

The surface tension on a diamond is the most. To tell if your diamond is real, place the stone in front of your mouth and huff on it like fogging a mirror.  A real diamond won’t fog up for even a couple seconds because the condensation doesn’t stick to the hard slick, non porous surface.

Burn it, then drown it 😉 Fire and Ice Water

Another test we can’t honestly recommend. To conduct this test you will need fire, such as a lighter, and water, such as in a glass.  Hold a lighter to your rock  and heat it up for about 30 seconds then drop it straight it into a glass of regular ice water.  A real rock won’t be affected by the drastic temperature change and simply sink to the bottom of the glass, but real cheap rings for men will shatter immediately.

Diamonds aren’t really that rare.

Value is simply a matter of time and place. I have seen a cheap ring sold for $10 in a gas station.  And I have seen that same ring in the cheap jewelry store selection of a local jewelry store for $120.  An imported steel ring with a CZ stone.  Diamonds aren’t as rare as all that.  Just price controlled.  Its a few big companies that got together and fixed the price in a group called a CARTEL.  Then there was some pretty intense advertising to create a demand.  If diamonds ARE someone’s best friend, can we recommend they adopt a shelter dog?

Did you know that they even make cheap sandpaper out of diamonds?  Just go to the local hardware store and have a look.  Each sheet of sandpaper has thousands of cheap, common inexpensive diamonds glued to it.  Of course they have been crushed into tiny pieces.  Which brings me to my next point; hard materials are brittle.  They can be crushed broken, fractured and smashed by softer material.  Water is used to cut stones when sprayed at high pressure.  And a simple steel hammer will crush any diamond into sandpaper.  If you go around writing on stuff with your inexpensive mens jewelry, cheap or not, you will damage it.

Tools can build and tools can destroy

Like the little boy who takes apart the family television set with a screwdriver.  He wanted to see what it was made of.  Gold is a very soft metal.  it must be mixed with cheaper metals to make it harder for inexpensive jewelry purposes.  Some guys in movies will bite a gold coin to see if its real.  But if it WAS truly valuable, now its got teeth marks in it.  And if that guy tries to bite one of our cheap tungsten rings for men or mens fashion cheap jewelry, he’s gonna lose a tooth.  Guaranteed.  It always makes me laugh to hear archaeologists abusing grave robbers.  And scientists, like overgrown boys, are constantly destroying things to see what they WERE.  Did you know that the oldest living animal was discovered by a team of scientists.  Ming the Mollusk was a very, very old clam.  But the scientists wanted to know HOW old.  They just HAD to open it and see.  It WAS 507 years old and got no older.
