Diamonds and gold

Recommended Posts


Hi there


Could somebody please explain the difference of all the different diamonds are as it is a bit confusing to me?

I read words like natural,simulated,created,untreated etc?


Then with gold and silver I read things like filled,infused,etc?


I would really like to try buy some of these products but I don't want to buy fake or non guaranteed goods.


thanking you in advance,regards,bruce

natural: The genuine stone, made by nature

simulated: A lookalike (such as glass or CZ cut to resemble diamond)

created: A man-made diamond

untreated: As it came out of the ground, unchanged other than cutting and polishing




These are all variations of plated. Some are supposed to have thicker plating or better gold but most often there is no fixed or recognised criteria so those definitions sometimes shift
