The Power of Diamonds: Beyond the Engagement Ring

As a former representative of the prestigious Denya Diamonds firm, Amir Landsman has acquired a solid working knowledge of the diamond markets and the use of these sparkling gemstones in commercial and industrial applications. Diamonds are found and mined in areas all over the world but are most commonly found in central and southern areas of the African continent. Synthetic diamonds can also be created in laboratory conditions; however, nearly all synthetic diamonds are currently used for industrial purposes. Cubic zirconia can also be cut and set to create a near-perfect resemblance to diamonds. Unlike true synthetic diamonds, however, cubic zirconia is not chemically identical to diamond and cannot be used in industrial applications.

Industrial Diamonds

The hardness and durability of diamonds makes them a favored material for use in saws and other cutting implements. Lower-quality diamonds are not suited for use in jewelry; however, they are ideal for grinding and cutting tasks. Diamond tools are even used to shape and polish other diamonds for use as gemstones in the jewelry industry.

Diamonds as Gemstones

Most gem-quality diamonds are white. However, pink, yellow, brown and other colored diamonds are also available and have become increasingly popular. Larger specimens are in high demand for diamond solitaire engagement rings and may be passed down from one generation to the next as treasured family heirlooms.

Diamonds play a critical role in both the jewelry industry and in providing ultra-hard grinding and cutting equipment for manufacturing and machining firms. This versatility ensures that this beautiful gemstone will remain in high demand for centuries to come.
