5 Ways to tell a Real Diamond from a Fake

Being the the jewelry business for more than twenty years, I get a lot of questions about being able to tell if a diamond is real or not.  So here are five ways to put a  real diamond to the test:
 
1.  If you can look into a diamond and see the bottom of the stone, chances are it is real.  
 
2.  You should not be able to breathe on a diamond without it fogging up more than 4-5 seconds. 
 
3.  Fake diamonds only sparkle at the top, while real diamonds sparkle from all angles.
