Unique in the world of gemstones, a diamond is the hardest of all materials. Perhaps it is because of this durability that diamonds are treasured as symbols of devotion and purity.

Yet, within the structure of diamonds there are often impurities or "inclusions". Sometimes they can be removed by cutting them away; other times enhancement methods are utilized. One method involves focusing beams of laser light at imperfections and vaporizes them. These diamonds are referred to as "lasered diamonds". Another method involves filling those passageways created by the laser beam with a clear resin or glass like substance making the inclusion less visible. These diamonds are referred to as "clarity enhanced" or "fracture-filled".

Ben Bridge does not sell any of these types of diamonds.

Diamonds may also be colored in a variety of hues. Extreme heat and/or irradiation permanently enhance certain innate color properties, allowing them to display their hues in more brilliant array.

As with all enhancements, Ben Bridge will disclose any color treatment your diamond has received.
