(PRESS RELEASE) NEENAH, WI — Jewelers Mutual Group, as part of its continuing support of the jewelry industry, has donated seven synthetic diamonds to the Diamond Durability Laboratory (DDL).

Each of these diamonds had been damaged and were sent to Jewelers Mutual as part of its policyholder claims process. Jewelers Mutual worked with the policyholders’ jeweler of choice to replace the stones with synthetic diamonds of the same kind and quality.

About the synthetic diamonds:

  • The donated, damaged synthetic diamonds ranged in size from 0.64 carat to 2.27 carat weight.
  • Each of the synthetic diamonds were worn in an engagement ring by a Jewelers Mutual policyholder.
  • The length of normal wear of the donated, damaged synthetic diamonds varied from 43 days to less than 2 years.
  • Jewelers Mutual and DDL have been collaborating for more than a year to better understand damaged diamonds – both natural and synthetic – and their relationship to several physical characteristics with the goal of creating a more predictive model for potential damage during wear.

Jewelers Mutual’s Kay Kostelny and Mitzi Rietveld, Graduate Gemologists (GIA), studied the damaged synthetic diamonds and shared their observations with DDL that “the damage to the synthetic lab grown diamonds are not characteristic of damage to natural mined diamonds.”

When Jewelers Mutual observed the differences in the damage between their typical natural damaged diamonds and the synthetic damaged diamonds, they reached out to DDL for discussion. The idea of the donation was in part supported by the lack of a secondary resale market for synthetic diamonds.

DDL plans a complete evaluation of the donated synthetic diamonds. The donation from Jewelers Mutual will deepen the understanding of synthetic diamond durability, a subject that has not been studied with any rigor. As the only diamond lab that focuses on diamond durability, DDL is well positioned to learn from these diamonds.

Additionally, DDL CEO Thomas Gelb has served as the technical advisor to the ASSURE Program and its development of a universal standard for synthetic diamond screening or detection services.

“We appreciate this donation from Jewelers Mutual and we are excited to use the stones to further our research and contribute to the industry knowledge about synthetic diamonds,” Gelb said. “Our collaborative research relationship with Jewelers Mutual is extremely important, and we hope by adding these synthetics to our knowledge base we can learn even more.”

T.GOLD will therefore see the debut of all the very latest tech entries in the gold and jewelry sector able to dictate future trends, thanks to the presence of key exhibiting companies such as Legor, Sisma, OMPAR and Novagum from Italy, Gemvision and 3D Systems from the United States and a significant attendance of German firms.

Moreover, T.GOLD acts as a meeting point for artisans, companies and advanced technology suppliers thanks to its partnership with AFEMO (Italian Association of Jewelry Machinery Manufacturers and Exporters) and Italian Exhibition Group’s collaboration with the Italian Foreign Trade Agency (ICE), which has extended the audience of incoming buyers from countries such as Uzbekistan, India, Indonesia, Malaysia and Thailand.

The not-to-be-missed appointment with the Jewelry Technology Forum, Europe’s exclusive international conference on new technologies and the latest trends in the jewelry sector, co-organized with Legor Group, will be held on 19th January 2020.

JTF offers a training moment for new and veteran gold and jewelry operators alike, providing the chance to compare and be updated on sector progress and trends. This year, the event will once again feature the experiences of exceptional speakers from the business and academic worlds. The topics under discussion will range from crystalline grain to innovation planning, from acrylic photopolymer 3D models for micro-casting to the macro-economic scene. The event will draw to a close with a closer look at the topic of synthetic diamonds.

Innovation will, however, be a transversal theme at Vicenzaoro. Indeed, the unmissable new entries this year will include considerable focus on the younger generation.

‘The Gold Run’ hackathon specifically addresses the new generations of innovators. Thousands of university students will, in fact, be able to translate the fundamental multi-disciplinary skills that lie behind gold-jewelry production, from chemistry to physics, from design to the implementation of digital technologies, into unprecedented and tangible projects. The 40 best proposals for creating a new product or innovative packaging will be submitted to an advisory board made up of prominent sector experts.

Lastly, with its “StartUp and Carats” project, for the first time IEG will be launching a focus on the Start-Up and innovative SME world as a further means to innovate the supply chain. Exploiting the strategic co-management with ICE, the initiative will provide visibility to new business models that are seeking to enter the jewelry scene and will offer talks and moments of encounter as well as the involvement of international incubators.
