(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.”

Wilkerson Helped This Jeweler to Navigate His Retirement Sale Despite a Pandemic

Hosting a going-out-of-business sale when the coronavirus pandemic hit wasn’t a part of Bob Smith’s game plan for his retirement. Smith, the owner of E.M. Smith Jewelers in Chillicothe, Ohio, says the governor closed the state mid-way through. But Smith chose Wilkerson, and Wilkerson handled it like a champ, says Smith. And when it was time for the state to reopen, the sale continued like nothing had ever happened. “I’d recommend Wilkerson,” he says. “They do business the way we do business.”
