What Is The Yehuda Clarity Enhancement Process?
It is our proprietary process that takes a diamond with a visible imperfection and makes the imperfection invisible to the naked eye. The imperfection remains in the diamond but it can no longer be seen. A more technical explanation would be the following:
During the Yehuda clarity enhancement process we insert a microscopic
amount of material into the part of the diamond that contains a feather. This
material has the same optical properties as the diamond itself. When light travels
from one medium to another, it either changes its course or reflects in a different
direction. When light attempts to pass through a non-enhanced diamond that has
a feather, the light hits the feather and reflects off in any number of directions.
That is why we see the feather, and the diamond doesn't appear to be clean.
With a Yehuda diamond, the light passes through the natural feather because
the material used for the enhancement has the same optical characteristics as
the diamond. The beam of light "thinks" it's still traveling through
the same material (diamond) and continues its original course.
Who Invented This Clarity
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 are naturally occurring
in most diamonds. The result is a more visually stunning diamond that you can
purchase for significantly less then a similar-looking, non-enhanced diamond.
Best of all, Yehuda Diamonds are totally natural and come from the same diamond
mines as all other diamonds. The clarity enhancement process is not visible
to the naked eye. Only your trained jeweler will ever know that you own a natural
Yehuda Clarity Enhanced Diamond.
Does Clarity Enhancement
"Change" A Diamond In Any Way?
No, it is still a natural diamond - it just looks better.
The amount of material used to fill the feather is so microscopic that even
the world's greatest diamond laboratory, the Gemological Institute of America
(GIA) has reported that Mr. Yehuda's clarity enhancement process adds
ZERO WEIGHT to a diamond. Take a look at the before and after pictures
below and judge for yourself.
Do I need to take care
of my Yehuda diamond differently than other diamonds?
Absolutely Not. 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 Yehuda diamond is exposed
to high heat or strong acids and bases, the enhancement may be reversed. In
the extremely rare case that a Yehuda Diamond should lose its enhancement, the
Yehuda Diamond Company will re-enhance the diamond at no charge, no questions
asked. With each diamond sold, Yehuda provides a unique business card-sized
CD, which when played on a standard PC, describes the Lifetime
Every Clarity Enhanced Diamond sold by Yehuda Diamond Company has a built-in
signature "Flash effect" that can be
seen under normal 10X magnification. The flash effect appears as a line of vivid
color at the location of the enhancement.
As a result, The Yehuda Diamond Company can offer you visually stunning diamonds
for the price of 20-30% less then similar looking non-enhanced diamonds. You
can either save money or purchase a bigger, more beautiful diamond.
