  • Consider a transparency test to differentiate real diamonds and fake ones. Keep a diamond upside down on a newsprint, if you can really see through and read the text easily, then it is definitely not a real diamond.
  • A fog test is helpful to know a real diamond and identifies the fake ones. Put the diamond in front of your mouth and exhale with a force. If the fog remains over it for 2-4 seconds, then it’s not a real diamond. A real diamond disperses heat and clears it up very quickly.

  • Usually, fake diamonds sparkle at the top so, always watch the diamonds from a side angle to check its shine. Real diamonds reflect from all sides unlike the fake ones that look dull.
