HOW WE TEST & EXAMINE DIAMONDS
When you come in with your diamond jewelry, an experienced buyer will sit down with you and examine each piece of jewelry/stone carefully using state of the art technology. Each diamond is tested using a machine that measures heat and fluorescence to confirm the diamonds are real.
When we test your diamond jewelry, we measure heat absorption because diamonds absorb heat better than any other mineral. This is done using a thermal absorption tool that generates a small amount of heat and measures the speed that the heat is absorbed by the stone.
It's been discovered that moissanite and other synthetic stones, including synthetic diamonds, are distinguishable from real diamonds based on the electrical conductivity. This provides greater accuracy and will also recognize metal in-case the Gemologists touches the setting.
Adele Diamonds trusted buyers inspects your diamond jewelry using a 10X loupe as well as a GemOro Elite Gem Zoom Scope. This will not distort the colors and clarity and instead provides the clearest view of the cut, clarity, and color of your diamonds. This helps our buyers determine the quality of the diamond in addition to the carat size.
Finally, once we have completed the examination of your diamond jewelry, we compare prices across our large network of industry buyers using the specific qualities of your diamond jewelry to determine the best offer to present you, our valued customer, with.
The 4 C’s – Color, Clarity, Cut, Carat
Diamonds are graded for color on a scale of D to Z, with D at the top of the chart representing colorless diamonds and Z at the bottom of the chart representing yellow or brown diamonds. Each letter within the scale denotes a specific range of color. The closer a diamond is to colorless, the more it increases in value. Completely colorless diamonds are extremely rare, and are therefore the most expensive. Adele Diamond offers only near colorless to colorless diamonds.
Diamond clarity determines the amount of inclusions and blemishes within each individual diamond. Flawless diamonds are almost non-existent. The closer a diamond is on the grading scale to flawless, the higher the price. Adele Diamond offers only diamonds of an I1 grading or better...

A diamond’s cut is man’s addition to the diamond, and it determines the diamond’s brilliance or sparkle – the better the cut, the bigger the sparkle. Diamond cuts are graded on a scale from Poor to Excellent. Adele Diamond only offers diamonds of a good cut or better.
Carat is the measure by which diamonds are weighed. 1 carat is equivalent to 200 milligrams. Although diamonds of the same weight can vary slightly in size, they are priced according to their weight. Adele Diamond offers diamond centers from .25 carat up to 5 carats and larger by request.
