Irradiated vs color enhanced

Topic: The Diamond

Q

Please tell me what is the difference between irradiated and color enhanced and if I want my diamond to be resellable in the future, which is better or should I stick with Natural Color? I am pricing Blue Diamonds 1/2 carat. Thanks!

Hi Karen,

Color enhanced and irradiated are the same thing. There is no secondary market for treated diamonds. If resale is a concern, just purchase a fully bonded diamond.
