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.

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.”
