In the jewelry marketplace today, gem-quality synthetic diamonds are more available than ever. The identification of their synthetic origin is of primary importance to jewelers.
As part of an ongoing research program on synthetic diamonds, GIA has set up a CVD growth facility where GIA will produce its synthetic diamonds for study.
A presentation about the properties of natural and synthetic diamonds, methods and equipment for their identification, and GIA’s CVD diamond growth facility, was held at the leading jewelry industry’s premiere trade show in 2016, JCK at Las Vegas.
