What is a NSCD Simulated Diamonds?

 The American Gem Trade Association defines a Diamond Simulant as: “A man-made single crystal, which can be manufactured with different materials and designed to simulate the appearance, but not duplicate the characteristic properties of a natural gemstone.”
  There are several brand names of Simulated Diamonds in the market today. Each one having its own claims on how they simulate a real diamond. Regardless if you use Silicon Carbide, Zirconium Oxide, Aluminum Oxide or any other material as the basis to form the crystals, because they are not natural occurring stones, they are all considered “ Simulated Diamonds”.


The NSCD Simulated Diamond

Natural Diamonds attribute their colored hues to imperfections within the stone and their value is directly dependent upon the clarity, color, carat weight and cut quality of the stone. NSCD Simulated Diamonds are carefully crafted to be nearly flawless and colorless in every way. They are cut and faceted to achieve maximum brilliance without any imperfections; they resemble the same optical characteristics, and can be shaped into all the same styles as natural diamonds.  The only difference in many experts’ opinions is the price. For the same clarity, cut, color and carat of a natural diamond that would fetch thousands of dollars, our simulated diamond of VVS1 quality rating are just a mere fraction of the cost.
  Because of their superior quality, the NSCD Diamond is regarded as the Premier Simulated Diamond in the world.


How are NSCD Simulated Diamonds Made?

 A Diamond Simulant is manufactured with a process called the “skull melt” in which the materials heat up from the inside outwards. The outside remains relatively cool while the inside melts, forming its own outer crust or “skull”. Only with extreme heat is the “preferred cube form” obtained and a metal oxide stabilizer is added to the process to ensure isometric cubic crystals. When the heat is switched off, the product then cools under rigidly controlled conditions and hardens.  NSCD Simulated Diamonds are scaled an 8-8.2 on the Mohs hardness scale.  As it hardens, the solid crystals are formed. Because they are made in a controlled environment, the crystals are also perfect in structure, without feathers or inclusions and since they are solid and not composed of layers, they are almost as hard as a natural diamond (8-8.2 on the Mohs Scale).  Due to their hardness and clarity the crystals can be cut using the same proportions used in cutting fine diamonds. Faceting too, is intensive and precise, creating facets and mimicking the brilliance of diamonds.


The brilliance and hardness of our finished crystals can vary slightly, so measurements for color, hardness and gravity are given in ranges.


Color: D – F: (on the diamond scale)

Hardness: 8-8.2 (Mohs hardness scale)

Specific Gravity: (5.8 – 6.0)

Crystal Form: (Isometric)

Refractive Index: (2.20)

Dispersion: (0.056)


The NSCD Difference

The faceting and polishing is the most crucial aspect of any stone. Here is where you get the different qualities. The amount and precision of facets is what determines the different qualities of diamond simulants. The fire and sparkle can only be achieved by the amount of light that refracts from within, and this can only be achieved by the faceting and polishing. That’s why the NSCD Simulated Diamond is one of the Most Brilliant Simulated Diamonds.

    Amazing Ring!

    Posted by Jacquelyn on Aug 25th 2016

    I thought hard for several days before actually purchasing this ring and I couldn't be happier. Unlike other rings, this looks amazingly real. Thinking of getting another. Thanks very much!

    I purchased this ring as a vacation ring because it is the same size and shape as my wedding ring. I wasn't expecting to be so pretty and realistic looking! I loved it so much I bought a second one just in case. Not only is the ring wonderful, but so is the staff at PCJ. They have been very kind and accommodating. Super happy with their service and I will most certainly look to them for other pieces! Enjoy!

    this stone will fool everyone

    Posted by k. boudreau on Aug 22nd 2015

    I was very nervous about dropping over $100 on a fake stone. I thought to myself "I can get a good CZ for far less than this". But I have bought many CZ's over the years and have been disappointed 90% of the time. I am also a firm believer in 'you get what you pay for'. And I am telling you, this stone is amazing. I took it out of the box in the sun, and it was immediately blinding me with fire. I literally can not tell the difference between this ring and my $16k internally flawless E color grade wedding ring. I'm serious. This is an amazing piece, and I'm so glad I spent the dollars. I intend on getting a matching band soon too. This is great for when u go someplace that you don't feel comfortable wearing jewelry worth the cost of a small car. And it has fooled everyone I know. The only difference between this ring and mine is the weight. Mine is a 1.25 carat set in platinum. And this is 4 carats set in silver. So it's much lighter. But the setting around the prongs is beautiful. And as long as u don't let anyone try it on, they will never know the difference.
