Elysium

Elysium rings are made with Polycrystal diamonds (PCD) which are laboratory-created or engineered diamond. Many industries have made use of this technology.

Black diamond rings are made by fusing 20-25 million diamond crystals together to form a solid, polycrystalline diamond. To grow, or sinter, these diamonds, a force of 1 million pounds per square inch (PSI) is applied with heat up to 1600 degrees Celsius. Under these tremendous temperatures and pressures, the individual diamonds literally grow together by overlapping their molecular structures.

The random alignment or non-symmetrical orientation of the individual crystals during this sintering process produces a solid that does not allow for the reflection of light. This causes Elysium diamond rings to be black in color.

FAQ’s

Q: Will it show as a diamond on a diamond tester?

A: It depends on the tester. The sintering process requires a small amount of proprietary material to act as a catalyst for the growth of the diamond crystals. This material can throw off diamond testers which test for electrical conductivity, showing that the ring is not diamond. However, thermal testers will confirm that the material is diamond; some testers have both thermal and electric options.

Q: Will the black fade or come off/does the color extend all the way through the ring?

A: The black goes all the way through. The random alignment or non-symmetrical orientation of the individual crystals from the sintering process produces a solid that does not allow for the reflection of light, making Elysium diamond rings black. The black will not fade away or wear away.

Q: Do Elysium rings scratch?

A: Elysium rings can only be scratched by another diamond. They can scratch other materials, including display glass. On occasion, the ring will look scratched, but it is simply residue left on the ring from another material. This residue can be removed with Scotch Brite pads or sandpaper. Do not use diamond grit sandpaper as diamond can scratch the ring.

Q: Can the ring be broken off in an emergency?

A: Yes, using a pair of vice grips or a ring cracker.
