AIC23 GJ - Lab-Grown Diamonds - Screening Challenges (NO VISUALS)
Lab-grown diamonds are the hottest trend in recent years. They have become increasingly popular, offering consumers attractive prices and quality options they couldn't afford before. However, this coin has two sides. In recent years, the industry media repeatedly covered dozens of undisclosed lab-grown diamond issues, demonstrating the increased prevalence of these goods and fueling consumer awareness. In this presentation, we will cover the formation processes of both origins, their visible and non-visible unique properties, the common screening techniques and technologies used for separation, and, most importantly, each technique's limitations and blind spots.
