Diamond Services to Offer Lab-Grown Diamond Screening Services in ShanghaiOctober 21, 15
(IDEX Online News) – Diamond Services will begin offering lab-grown diamond screening services in Shanghai following the instillation of a mini Raman Spectrometer at state-owned gem lab NGGC.
The Spectrometer is able to accurately detect HPHT and CVD lab-grown diamonds and HPHT colour-treated diamonds, as well as diamond simulants.
“Our goal is to expand the services being provided by NGGC by providing definitive and rapid confirmation as to whether a diamond is synthetic or not," said Joseph Kuzi, Diamond Services' founder and president. "Chinese traders will no longer have to withdraw suspect goods from circulation for lengthy periods of time, before they can be examined properly using the appropriate equipment. At NGGC we will be able to examine a stone immediately, and provide a final decision."
The desktop-sized mini Raman Spectrometer can test both mounted and non-mounted stones, and deliver its results in an easy-to-read and interpret format.
The diamond screening service will begin on November 2.
