A wealth of information exists beyond the basics recited by most professionals. Topics discussed will include physical differences, equipment standards, contaminants and growth-timelines which influence finished quality in both HPHT and CVD produced crystals – as well as distinctive characteristics experienced gemologists and jewelers are learning to identify with loupes and microscopes.
Whether you sell lab-grown diamonds or not, teaching your clients something new builds trust in your professional expertise.
