About Clarity Enhancement
What is the Clarity Enhancement Process?
Who invented this Clarity Enhancement Process?
In 1982, Zvi Yehuda, an extremely famous Israeli scientist discovered a way to enhance the clarity of diamonds. The revolutionary process optically eliminates "feathers", which naturally occur in most diamonds.
Does Clarity Enhancement "alter" a diamond in any way?
No, it is still a natural diamond. It's just a natural diamond that looks much better for a lower price.
Do I need to give my enhanced diamond special treatment?
The Gemological Institute of America (G.I.A), after extensive research, has determined that normal wear and tear cannot harm the enhancement. Only if the enhanced diamond is exposed to high heat or strong acids and bases, the enhancement may be reversed. So, as long as you clean your diamond with a amonia free lightweight cleaner your diamond will be just fine.
