(PRESS RELEASE) Accurate, objective laboratory grown diamond detection is now less costly and more precise. Two new detection instruments from DRC Techno have been launched for jewelers, appraisers, and purchasers of loose or mounted diamonds.

The J-Mini, an over-the-counter instrument priced at $4499, can scan four rings, other jewelry, or loose stones in less than 60 seconds. The larger $9999 J-Detect can scan up to 15 rings at once on its 100 by 120 mm. (approximately 4 x 5 inch) platform. These machines complement DRC Techno’s J-Smart Pro machine, a high capacity commercial instrument priced at $22,499.

These instruments will be unveiled at the JIS Show in Miami Beach from February 9 through 11 and the HKTDC Hong Kong International Jewellery Show from March 4 through 8.

Identifying natural diamonds from HPHT and CVD laboratory grown diamonds is of critical importance in determining value and providing positive diamond identification. Although much different in value, laboratory grown diamonds are visually indistinguishable from natural stones.

“None of these devices require advanced gemological knowledge for their operation,” said David Skuza, the North American agent for the company. “Each machine has a viewing screen where laboratory grown diamonds as small as 0.003 carat have a green box surrounding them. Most other machines require a subjective judgement by the operator, but new developments by DRC Techno provide objective identification at an affordable cost. For the gemologist, each instrument also offers fluorescent, photoluminescent, and phosphorescent views.”

“The laboratory grown diamond marketplace is changing every day” said Skuza. “DRC Techno, with a base in Surat, India is ideally located. Their research and development team is constantly scouring the local and international marketplace for new laboratory grown diamond variations and developments. This information is integrated into software updates so operators can stay current with the changes in CVD and HTHP development.”

Downsizing? Wilkerson Is Here to Help

Orin Mazzoni, Jr., the owner of Orin Jewelers in Garden City and Northville, Michigan, decided it was time to downsize. With two locations and an eye on the future, Mazzoni asked Wilkerson to take the lead on closing the Garden City store. Mazzoni met Wilkerson’s Rick Hayes some years back, he says, and once he made up his mind to consolidate, he and Hayes “set up a timeline” for the sale. Despite the pandemic, Mazzoni says the everything went smoothly. “Many days, we had lines of people waiting to get in,” he says, adding that Wilkerson’s professionalism made it all worthwhile. “Whenever you do an event like this, you think, ‘I’ve been doing this my whole life. Do I really need to pay someone to do it for me?’ But then I realized, these guys are the pros and we need to move forward with them.”
