Let us begin by stating that this is NOT a treatment, it is a process. Despite the alteration in the diamond’s appearance, HPHT does not insert anything, nor does the process extract anything from the diamond. The HPHT process engulfs the diamond with high pressure and high temperature, mimicking conditions similar to the environment deep within Earth. Very few diamonds, with the proper unique elements trapped within, may be eligible for this rare process. Even after approved, there are risks involved, as a diamond may crack or shatter during the process. In addition, the diamond’s color is not guaranteed, as this process merely awakens a diamond’s full potential. Nevertheless, the color achieved is permanent. These various risk factors point out how extraordinary these diamonds truly are, making them very unique and limited in comparison with treated diamonds. Other diamonds that go through a treatment are easily detected, and are not necessarily permanent. HPHT diamonds are indistinguishable from Natural-Origin diamonds in appearance and elemental composition.
