They were CVD synthetics.

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

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

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.”
