Desert Diamonds simulants are the highest grade diamond simulants available on the market today. Our stones are made from a chemical composition created to imitate the qualities of natural diamond and selected to meet our specifications. All our stones are of exceptional quality (equivalent to D colour and VSI grade) and are impossible to distinguish from real diamonds to the naked eye.
They are rated 8.5 on the MOHS scale of hardness compared to a diamond which, with a rating of 10, is the hardest natural substance. In common with diamonds, the simulants used in Desert Diamonds jewelry do not discolor, become brittle or crack with age. The stones are cut using the same faceting technique as a diamond and hand polished with diamond powder. This highly skilled process results in the final precision of cut, luster, brilliance and longevity of the stone.
The venue is very easy to find using Google Maps, or alternatively you may use the GPS coordinates 24.4714498: 54.3719173
