Can Fake Diamonds Sink In Water?
17 / 4 / 2023
Fake diamonds, like cubic zirconia, can sink in water due to their high density compared to water.
However, using a water test as the sole method to determine the authenticity of a diamond is not reliable...
as other factors such as shape, size, and surface tension of the water can affect the behavior of the gemstone.
Professional jewelers and gemologists use more advanced and reliable methods, such as density...
refractive index, thermal conductivity, and spectroscopy measurements, to accurately identify and distinguish...
between fake diamonds and real diamonds. Relying solely on a water test can be misleading and risky.
