They were CVD synthetics.

The Gemological Institute of America detected a sizable batch of undisclosed synthetic diamonds, Rapaport News reports.

In a group of 323 melee diamonds, 101 were found to be synthetic. They were produced through the chemical vapor deposition method.

The discovery was made in Mumbai, India, where GIA’s Melee Analysis Service had received the parcel, according to Rapaport.

 “This is the first time we have seen such a significant percentage of CVD melee mixed with natural melee,” said Wuyi Wang, director of research and development for the institute.

The size of the diamonds in the group of 323 was between 0.014 and 0.015 carats, Rapaport reports.

Wilkerson Testimonials

Retirement Made Easy with Wilkerson

The store was a landmark in Topeka, Kansas, but after 80 years in business, it was time for Briman’s Leading Jewelers to close up shop. Third generation jeweler and owner Rob Briman says the decision wasn’t easy, but the sale that followed was — all thanks to Wilkerson. Briman had decided a year prior to the summer 2020 sale that he wanted to retire. With a pandemic in full force, he had plenty of questions and concerns. “We had no real way to know if we were going to be successful or have a failure on our hands,” says Briman. “We didn’t know what to expect.” But with Wilkerson in charge, the experience was “fantastic” and now there’s plenty of time for relaxing and enjoying a more secure retirement. “I would recommend Wilkerson to any retailer considering a going-out-of-business sale,” says Briman. “They’ll help you reach your financial goal. Our experience was a tremendous success.”
