Diamanti-IX Vs. Diamond


When looking at a Diamanti-IX® and a mined Diamond side by side, the first and most obvious difference is that there is no difference at all!

Superbly hand-cut and polished, the exquisite Diamanti IX is virtually identical to a mined stone to the naked eye. Plus, thanks to our revolutionary CL-3 (complex layering - version3) surface enhancement that utilizes our Optical and Ultra-Pure 90% Diamond coating, guarantees the Diamanti-IX will not cloud, fade or discolor. Even highly skilled jewelers can’t tell the difference just by looking.
 

Dazzling Results...

Diamanti-IX is so optically close to a diamond that without magnification, it’s impossible to tell them apart. Below is a side-by-side comparison, showing an $18,000 1.00 carat Round, E-F color, VVS1 clarity mined diamond next to a Diamanti IX. As you can see, the similarities are stunning.

Can you tell which stone below is the Diamanti-IX?

Diamanti-IX vs Mined Diamond Comparison

The Diamanti-IX is on the Left. Even jewelers found it almost impossible to distinguishing the two.

 

Hardness

A gem’s hardness is measured according to the Mohs scale, where it will achieve a rating somewhere between 1 (the softest) and 10 (the hardest). As expected, diamonds are a 10 on this scale. Rubies and sapphires each rate a 9, and Cubic Zirconia is an 8 - 8.5. Diamanti-IX rates an overall 9.1 Mohs.
 

Brilliance

Brilliance – or sparkle – is compared using a Refractive Index, which measures how much slower the speed of light becomes when it passes through the gemstone. The higher a stone’s Refractive Index, the more light it reflects from its surface. A mined diamond typically has a refractive index of 2.42. A Diamanti-IX, in contrast, rates even higher, between an average of 2.34 to 2.44.
 

Dispersion

What we perceive as a glittering rainbow of color emitting from a stone is called dispersion. This is what gives a gem its fire and brilliance. A mined diamond has a dispersion power of 0.044. The Diamanti-IX is almost identical – 0.046.

Clearly, the beauty of a Diamanti with its diamond-like qualities and attainable price point makes it truly a brilliant and sensible alternative.
