What Is An Enhanced Diamond?

At Greis Jewelers, where tradition meets sophistication, we understand that diamonds are more than just stones; they are symbols of love, and luxury, and a testament to nature's marvels. But did you know that not all diamonds are created equal? In this article, we delve into the intriguing world of enhanced diamonds, a marvel of human ingenuity meeting natural beauty.

Understanding Enhanced Diamonds

Enhanced diamonds are natural diamonds that have undergone specific treatments to improve their visual characteristics. At Greis, we believe in transparency and education, so it's essential to know that these enhancements are done to bring out the inherent beauty of the diamond. 

Unlike synthetic diamonds, enhanced ones are born from the earth, only further refined by human touch.

Types of Diamond Enhancements

  • Laser Drilling: Tiny laser channels are made to remove small inclusions, improving clarity.
  • Fracture Filling: Subtle substances fill surface cracks, enhancing the diamond’s overall appearance.
  • Color Enhancement: Advanced techniques alter or improve a diamond’s color.

Each method is a testament to human ingenuity, and we at Greis Jewelers ensure that our enhanced diamonds maintain the highest standards of quality.

The Pros and Cons of Enhanced Diamonds


  • Cost-Effective: They are more affordable than their unenhanced counterparts.
  • Visually Appealing: Enhancements can dramatically improve a diamond's appearance.


  • Durability: Certain enhancements might affect the diamond's longevity.
  • Resale Value: Enhanced diamonds may have a lower resale value compared to natural diamonds.
