Bharat Diamond Bourse Vice-President Mehul Shah, who heads the Bharat Diamond Week, said: “We are looking forward towards the launch of 2019 edition of the Bharat Diamond Week, 14 to 16 October. BDW invites buyers across the globe as well as within India. Selected buyers will be allotted complimentary hotel accommodation. Members of Bourses affiliated to WFDB will be always at a priority. This is also an inter-bourse show which proved to be such a successful concept last year. We are building on those first two shows to take it to the next level with higher numbers of exhibitors and many more buyers. As with the 2018 shows, we want to create maximum coverage for our small and medium-size companies.”

Above all the guest of honor to BDW 2019 is the vice president of WFDB and president of Shanghai Diamond Exchange Lin Qiang with the Members of SDE.

BDB President Anoop Mehta said: “The inaugural shows and the high level of demand from visitors and exhibitors alike showed that we had to stage a show in 2019. The exhibitors will again be treated to typical warm and welcoming Indian hospitality as we show them that our diamond companies can supply them with absolutely any diamond they need in any shape, size or color.

“Each Indian company that wins the right to display at the Bharat Diamond Week is entitled for one booth only. Trading of Synthetic or Lab Grown Diamonds are banned in BDB, therefore there is no room for synthetics or lab grown diamonds in BDW.”

Mr Mehta added: “These inter-bourse events have proven their value at other diamond exchanges also, and it is only right that India, as the world’s primary cutting and polishing centre, should hold a fair to showcase the diamonds that we have available for sale. The Bharat Diamond Week puts buyers directly in touch with suppliers in a convenient setting, saving time and expenses as the exhibitors and their goods can be easily and quickly found, thus making the fair an efficient visit. We will be announcing further details in coming weeks.”

The biggest attraction for the show is that being a pre Diwali time, it’s the perfect opportunity for best buying deals.

Vibrant Gemstones Make a Splash in Gems & Gemology

Summer issue features chart of inclusions in natural, treated, imitation and laboratory-grown opal.

Published

on

(PRESS RELEASE) CARLSBAD, CA – Dive into the Summer 2019 Gems & Gemology (G&G), GIA’s (Gemological Institute of America) quarterly professional journal, for insights into Mozambique ruby, Madagascar sapphire, black nephrite from China, pearls and opal inclusions. The latest G&G is available in print by subscription and in the GIA Store, and digitally – at no cost – on GIA.edu.

GIA field gemologist Wim Vertriest and senior manager of identification Sudarat Saeseaw open the issue with a review of ruby from Mozambique that explores a decade of production, distribution, gemological characterization and the most common treatment processes applied to material from this locality. Billie Hughes of Lotus Gemology and Rosey Perkins with Fura Gems present their findings of low-temperature heat treatment experiments on sapphire from Madagascar and the means for separating unheated from heated stones. Also, lead author and PhD student of mineralogy at Tongji University Qian Zhong shares the study of black nephrite jade from Guangxi, southern China that appears to be part of a large-scale jade formation belt in the region.

Pearls are the focus in two of the articles in the summer issue. Jean-Pierre Gauthier from the Gemological Research Center of Nantes and his coauthors characterize “flame structure” in 37 pearls from bivalves of the Tridacnidae family that revealed evidence of rotation during growth. Researchers at the Max Planck Institute for Chemistry, Johannes Gutenberg University, and GIA’s New York and Bangkok laboratories share a pearl identification challenge, where two pearls could not be positively identified at any of these gemological laboratories.

In the final feature, GIA manager of colored stone identification Nathan Renfro and coauthors present a large and colorful opal inclusions chart that is also available as a laminated wall chart from the GIA Store online. Lab Notes includes a rough diamond with fake green “radiation stains,” a study on the separation of kornerupine and prismatine, and the first report of a color-change spessartine garnet examined by GIA.

The issue is rounded out with the regularly occurring features G&G Micro-World, Diamonds from the Deep and Gem News International.

This and every issue of G&G since 1934, including full articles, lab notes, photo galleries and exclusive video footage, is available at no cost on GIA’s website GIA.edu/gems-gemology.

Additional research articles are available at GIA.edu/gia-news-research.

Print subscriptions and copies of back issues are available at http://store.gia.edu/.
