I don’t have a clarity enhanced diamond, but I’d love to know more about them. I actually didn’t know that this was done… Mine is a small diamond so I can’t see any inclusions (SI1) but in a larger stone I suppose it makes a huge difference…

i had a yehuda treated diamond which is basically clarity enhanced. i returned it because when they sold it to us they never told us it was enhanced. in the sunlight i could see it a little cloudy and a small feather but overall it was a beautiful diamond. Just be 100% sure you want an enhanced diamond. heres the best pic i could find since i no longer have it.

I no longer have a clarity enhanced diamond, but I HIGHLY recommend seeing the specific diamond in person before you get one. I’m not against the idea of them, because I love science and finding ways to improve natural stones. I bought one that was .78ct, and allegedly SI1 clarity without seeing it in person (bad mistake). It came and I was very disappointed: feathers and cloudiness abound! Not eye clean at all. If it had been something I noticed after staring at it for hours, that would have been one thing, but I noticed it immediately. 

Like I said, I like the idea of them, but do get a look at it in person before you decide! I’m just lucky the vendor had an easy return policy, and the only money I lost was the return shipping price.

I just have to say, my fiance bought me a clarity enhanced diamond ring – and it is absolutely beautiful.  Its a REAL diamond and the enhancements make it a higher quality diamond.  It has a certificate and everything – and nobody needs to know it is clarity-enhanced.

Caring for it is different.  You shouldn’t clean the ring with ammonia or put it under intense heat.  (So if you take it to a jewelers, you must let them know its clarity-enhanced so they avoid using intense heat or ammonia).  At home, I clean it with a pearl cleaner.

The stone itself is a radiant-cut stone – so the sparkle is magnificent (I wanted a radiant cut specifically for this reason).  The halo diamonds around it and on the band are not enhanced – just the main stone.  Money was saved – and the ring is stunning.  So anybody who has doubts (as I did at first) PLEASE, go with the enhanced ring!!
