Fake jewelry is one of the main issues that concern various jewelry producers and dealers. Today so-called "deliberate reproduction" of top-level jewelry pieces is among the most popular shadow economy businesses. Many producers of fakes sell them as real. Thus the reputation of real dealers is highly damaged. Today advanced technologies make it hard to tell fake jewelry from real at a glance like it was several decades and centuries ago.

Before purchasing diamond jewelry try to get as much useful information concerning the product as possible.

Take a look at the setting that holds the stone. Note that fake diamonds are very often held by low quality metal settings.

Look at the stone. The real diamond is the hardest stone on Earth. Thus try to look for scratches, and if you find such then you have a fake.

You should buy jewelry only from official retailers or boutiques of certain brands. Small jewelry shops are likely not to be trusted.

When buying diamond jewelry ask the certificate stating the authenticity of the stone. If you will be refused then all you have to do is walk away.

You should have a special certificate stating that you have purchased a specific piece of jewelry in a specific store. When you find out that you have a fake then you have the right to return the product. Remember that there are no identical stones.

The certificate from the Gemological Institute of America (GIA) ensures the authenticity of the diamond. GIA is the largest institution that presents a grading report when it finishes the examination of the stone.
It is useful to have the appraisal of the stone made by an individual jeweler from such professional institution like the American Society of Appraisers (ASA).

You can start dealing with a reputable master in jewelry. When you find one, try to stick with him.
You may consider showing the jewelry to several jewelry masters to be sure if it is fake or real.
