Irradiated Colored Diamonds
Irradiated colored diamonds are genuine diamonds that show colors after being exposed to a strong radiation treatment. The diamonds quickly becomes inert after the treatment has finished. The diamond is then heated to effect an overall coloration.
The Truth about Irradiated Diamonds:
When performing repair work or sizing, the diamond should not be subject to intense heat, which would cause the color to change. However the diamond will never lose its overall coloration and become near colorless again. It is possible to repair or work on a ring successfully without having to ever heat the diamonds again, which is what we recommend. If a jeweler or goldsmith works on the ring, and they are not aware of its irradiation, you should inform them that the diamonds have been irradiated. That way they can take steps to care for the color. We will always be happy to perform any repair or sizing on our rings.
