Colored Diamond Jewelry
Apples of Gold Jewelry's new collection of blue diamond jewelry and black diamond jewelry are genuine, natural white diamonds that have been colored enhanced through heat treatment or irradiation to obtain their beautiful and rich blue or black colors.
Colored diamonds are, in fact, natural, authentic diamonds that are subjected to high temperatures and high pressure. The heat and pressure simulate conditions during a diamond's natural formation in the Earth. This causes alterations in the diamond's structure and appearance─in this case, color. Temperatures reach as high as 3,452 Degrees Fahrenheit to 3,812 degrees Fahrenheit.

Irradiation is a type of ionizing radiation and a level of radiation that will serve a specific purpose. Irradiation is often used for such purposes as sterilizing objects such as medical instruments as well as food sterilization.
