We explain how to identify if your diamond has been switched and the steps that need to be taken in order to reset the diamond engagement ring. First, identify your valuable diamond. You can do this by consulting a diamond seller or by having it examined by a professional gemologist or jeweler. Second, you should add a fake laser inscription to the stone or switch your valuable diamond with lab grown diamonds to make it difficult for someone to switch stones. Thirdly, assign gemological labs such as IGI or GIA to certify your diamonds and give them unique identification marks such as a serial number that can help in resolving disputes in case of switching stones.
Ask for a diamond plot and a diamond report that will help you to identify your diamonds. Furthermore, it is important to set the diamonds in high quality metal such as gold or platinum. Avoid setting them in poor quality metal as that can easily be swapped. Do not rely on the untrained eyes of a jeweler to pick out the clarity of the stone, always ask for a stamp from GIA or IGI on your diamonds, as that is undisputed proof of authenticity. To ensure there are no attempts to switch your diamonds with CZ stones, opt for high quality CZ stones that look exactly like real diamonds and check them under magnification. Finally, consult an expert gemologist who can give you an opinion about the authenticity of your diamond based on its cut, clarity, carat weight and other characteristics.
It is important to reset the diamond engagement ring to make sure it cannot be replaced with a fake stone. It is also a good idea to take your diamond ring to a reputable jeweler who can examine the diamond and determine if it has been switched. You can then reset your diamond in a different setting. This will help hide any chips or scratches that may have been made when attempting to switch the stone. After the new setting has been chosen, the jeweler can then secure the diamond in place so it cannot be easily removed or replaced. Following these steps should help you prevent your diamonds from getting switched. You can also have a local jeweler steam the ring to remove any flecks or inclusions that may have been caused over time.
