Tests Positive For A Diamond
A diamond tester is a thermal conductivity meter that will detect the rate at which heat moves through stones and will tell you whether it is a diamond. Because of
the high carbon content and similar heat signature, Aterna will test positive on most diamond testers.
Passes Fog Test
Diamonds effectively conduct heat and therefore disperse heat quickly. If you place a stone in front of your mouth and fog it like you would a mirror, if it stays fogged for a couple of seconds, it’s most likely not a diamond. Aterna, like a diamond, disperses the heat from your breath instantaneously and won't fog up.
Passes Transparency Test
A diamond refracts light so intensely that you cannot see through it. If you’re able to read the
letters of the newspaper—even if the letters are a bit blurry, its most likely not a diamond. Aterna's facets will refract and bend the light so sharply that you wouldn't be able to see the print, thus passing the transparency test.
Aterna is an attractive, cost-friendly option thanks to our proprietary process. You can create your dream engagement ring without veering outside your budget or compromising center gemstone size. Aterna is significantly lower in price than diamonds of similar shape and dimensions, making them the perfect alternative to a diamond.
Aterna is exceptionally durable at 9.5 Mohs hardness making it the 2nd hardest Gem in the world - only 2nd to a diamond at 10 Mohs hardness. Like a diamond, it does not micro-scratch, dull, fade, or become cloudy, making it perfect for everyday wear.
Aterna is hand-crafted by our master diamond cutters, who are some of the best in the world. Aterna is superbly cut to Ideal / Excellent proportions with VS or higher clarity, guaranteeing spectacular diamond sparkle and visually eye-clean.
Most diamond owners prefer to know the journey of their stone. Unfortunately, the origins of most diamonds can be vague, as they come from conflicted regions and are unethically sourced. Because Aterna is grown in controlled environments using advanced technology, they do not require mining and are guaranteed conflict-free.
