Welcome to BetterThanDiamond
Creator of the patent-pending Asha® - Fake Diamond, Real Diamond Beauty™

Fake Diamond: The Asha H&A Round Simulated Diamond

Important note (8/23/2010): We are low on inventory (and sold out in some cases) on a number of stones due to higher than expected demand.
Thus, we recommend checking inventory using our new, in-progress website which has live inventory tracking, to verify stock before ordering:
http://betterthandiamond.com/newstore
We expect to restock in September for most sold out items.

You may order from either site - the new site will fully replace this website by October.
Thanks!

 

 


Why is Asha® the most realistic fake diamond?

The Asha® is the only simulated diamond that employs an optical layer with a refractive index higher than diamond, and true lab created amorphous diamond (pure carbon diamond bonds) in its construction.  The process for producing the Asha is US Patent-Pending.

The result is a dazzling faux diamond that shows more beauty, sparkle and fire than many typical, natural diamonds - hence the phrase, "True Diamond Beauty™".
(see the Asha's BrillianceScope testing results below for a comparison against natural diamond). 
 

 

US Patent Pending:  The Asha® is so unique that it is US Patent Pending:

US Patent Application No: 12/139,931
 
Method for Producing a Highly Refractive Composite Gemstone, and Product

Fake Diamond in Cutting

Fake Diamond Coating Process

Because Asha® contains actual diamond carbon bonds and an optical layer designed to boost the refractive index, the result is a diamond simulant that is at last able to truly mimic the light play, lustre and beauty of gem diamond but at diamond simulant pricing.

The end-result:  Just as cultured pearls offer you the beauty of pearls at a fraction of the natural pearl price, Asha® is able to offer you the brilliance and stunning beauty of real diamond, but at a fraction of the natural diamond price.


 

"I've had my asha stone for almost 5 years now.

I had received a 1.25 carat round stone which was set in my bridal set. My new asha was so beautiful that I sold my .75 carat diamond.

Well after almost 5 years the stone is still just as beautiful as the day I received it.

To this day only my husband knows this is not a mined diamond. I have always have many comments about how sparkley my ring is. People say they spot it from across the room....I have also recommended your site to people who want a high quality stone without the high price of a mined diamond.

Fake Diamond compared to Real Diamond
Is the Asha realistic?  
Seeing is believing - above is a customer photo showing an Asha®  
next to her Eightstar diamond.

As further, up-front proof of how realistic the Asha diamond simulant is, a sample 1ct Asha round was submitted for evaluation by an objective measure of diamond beauty, the Gemex Brilliancescope system.  

The Brilliancescope utilizes a laser and computer to measure a diamonds light return and then rank its beauty according to how it compares to other natural diamonds.  Diamond beauty is broken down as "White Light return", "Colored Light return" and Scintillation.

The results?  The sample Asha, a 1ct fake diamond, scored at at the extreme high-end for all three aspects of diamond beauty, easily outperforming the typical natural diamond.
