We’re considering getting a clarity enhanced diamond. I’m done some research, but I’d love to see pictures of YOUR clarity enhanced diamonds and have you explain your experiences with them.
I don’t really mind what it looks like under a microscope, as long as you aren’t able to see the imperfections plainly with the naked eye….suggestions?!

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.

Hi jo, did you get a CE in the end? I’m currently looking at the option x

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!!
