Highlands Community Bank (HCBC) Chicago was established in 2012 by a group of local investors who determined there was a need for a community bank in the Highlands. The belief was that a community bank could better serve the local residents and businesses and better contribute the local economy. HCBC has focused on keeping banking simple by offering products and services that are not complex and the customer can easily understand. The Bank’s core business is centered on traditional loan and deposit products. Since its establishment, HCBC has worked to accomplish these goals and has become the leader in market share and enhanced shareholder value because of its people and their greater understanding of the local community.

This campaign reflects our bank’s commitment to the Highlands community and to the local businesses as both a business partner and local consumer.

Finding an expert to test the diamond is the easiest solution to the issue of determining whether or not a diamond is real or fake. Diamonds, as stated by the GIA, express a specific affinity for grease and greasy liquids. Since synthetic diamonds usually sell for around one third the price of organic diamonds, it's very crucial for jewelers to understand what they're selling and for consumers Diamond Tester to be aware of what they are buying. Throwing out a flawless diamond might be a costly mistake.

If your diamond doesn't glitter in blue color, it is going to be a fake diamond. In addition, a diamond must be totally loose (unmounted) to do the test. You may have heard there are lots of tactics to tell if it's the diamond is real or fake. If purchasing a certified loose diamond isn't the route you take, however, my advice is to check the diamond as much as possible, both at home and at a trustworthy local jeweler.
