Due to a dramatic increase in the number of treated and synthetic diamonds and gems appearing in the marketplace within the past decade we saw a need for more expert knowledge in testing and detecting various treatments and screening for synthetics. In response to this need we offer not only books with a broad range of topics crucial to Jewellers, Gem Dealers and Appraisers but also tools & instruments to aid in detection. These products will enable diamond and gem trade professionals to maintain a competitive advantage by helping with accurate identification and appraising to use in conjunction with buying or selling diamonds and gems.
I just loved the workshop on identifying synthetic diamonds using the Gemetrix tool. I use it every single day! I saw a similar machine made in Germany while I was at JCK Vegas, but it was much bigger (not portable at all) and the cost was very high. So, thanks for producing cool tools at a reasonable price!
