What are Elysium black diamond rings? Simply put, they are rings made of diamond. No, they are not crushed black diamonds. They are genuine poly crystalline diamonds.
Why do guys love Elysium black diamond rings? They are the hardest ring in the universe. 100 times harder than tungsten rings. They are bio-compatible and 100% hypo-allergenic. The black is solid - goes all the way through the ring, so no scratching off of the black. They are scratch proof. The only thing that can scratch a diamond is another diamond.
Each wedding band is approximately 25 carats of diamond. All Elysium black diamond rings come with a 1 year unconditional warranty.
How are they made?
Using highly advanced scientific technology, a small diamond seed is placed in highly controlled laboratory environment. Here the rough diamond seed grows, atom by atom, and layer by layer - thus recreating the natural process that takes millions of years.
The lab grown poly crystalline diamonds are then crushed into powder. Using a binder (1-2% of a proprietary material) the crushed diamond powder is then heated to 2700 degrees F with 1 million pounds of pressure (PSI) for 8 minutes. The result of this high pressure and high heat is a beautifully forged Elysium solid diamond ring.
Is the color stable?
Yes, the color is black through and through the ring. It is black all the way to the core. The density of the crushed poly crystalline diamonds makes the material black.
More interesting things
Diamonds have an amazingly high thermal conductivity. Basically, they transfer heat at a higher rate than any other substance on earth. Since Elysium rings are diamond, they too will conduct heat super quickly too. So here's a fun thing to do. Grab an ice cube. Then take your Elysium Black Diamond Ring and hold it in your hand for 30 seconds. Then take your ring and press it against the ice cube so the ring opening is against the ice. Watch the ice cube as the ring will immediately burn a perfect circle right into it! Guys love doing this, it's fun. (Yes, I'm a guy and we are easily amused.)
Here's a video of showing how Elysium rings melt ice!
Have you ever seen a jeweler test to see if a gemstone is a diamond using a diamond thermal conductivity tester? When it's a diamond it beeps and the light turns green. Have your jeweler test your Elysium Black Diamond ring with their diamond tester. It's pretty cool to see your ring test out as a genuine diamond. On average, your ring will weigh about 25 carats. Smaller finger sizes will weigh less, and larger sizes will weigh more on the diamond weight scale.
The rings slip on an off like butter. The surface is very smooth (what else would you expect from a diamond, right?). The diamonds are not heavy and dense like other materials such as tungsten. The ring will weigh less than a karat gold, platinum or silver ring. Similar in weight to palladium, cobalt chrome or titanium.
Warranty: Your Elsyium ring is covered with a one year warranty for size exchange (does not apply to custom made Elysium rings) and against breaking. If your finger size changes during the 1st year, you can send the ring back and we will exchange it for a new ring in your new finger size. If your ring breaks (it is rare) during the 1st year it will also be replaced. In both cases, the only cost you will have is the return shipping to you.
If you need to exchange your Elysium ring after 1 year, there is a fee of 20% of the purchase price. Also, if your Elysium ring breaks after 1 year it can be replaced for 20% of the purchase price.
