It’s rolling out new technology.

(Press Release) LAFAYETTE, LA – With the rise of lab-grown diamonds, Stuller continues to implement strict screening processes to ensure quality and integrity.

“The introduction and rise of lab-grown diamonds makes reliability and trust more important than ever,” says Stanley Zale, vice president of diamonds and gemstones. “We started introducing more screening steps through the use of machines like the De Beers Automated Melee Screening Device for stones we bring in-house. Now, not only have we added more technology for even better screening, but we’ve also made that technology available for our customers to use in their stores.”

This year alone, Stuller will add these new and improved screening devices to its newly establish Diamond Lab:

  • The De Beers Automated Melee Screening Device 2, which provides an increased processing capacity of 3,600 diamonds per hour.
  • Three advanced analytical spectrometers – Raman & PL, FTIR, and UV-Vis- NIR.
  • The De Beers’ PhosView, a self-contained screening device.
  • The portable D-Screen machine from HRD Laboratories.
  • The Presidium screener.

“This cutting edge technology coupled with many years of experience has evolved our first ever diamond-screening laboratory — a one-of-a-kind center solely focused on ensuring diamond integrity,” Zale said. “We don’t tolerate undisclosed lab-grown diamonds in our inventory. For added security, we further require our vendors to screen all diamonds for lab-grown. Random samples of stones are also periodically sent out to leading laboratories to check for synthetics.”

And if jewelers are interested in the tools needed to test diamonds in their stores, Stuller offers more than 15 different testing machines in all price ranges.

Wilkerson Testimonials

If It’s Time to Consolidate, It’s Time to Call Wilkerson

When Tom Moses decided to close one of the two Moses Jewelers stores in western Pennsylvania, it was time to call in the experts. After reviewing two candidates, Moses, a co-owner of the 72 year-old business, decided to go with Wilkerson. The sale went better than expected. Concerned about running it during the pandemic, Moses says it might have helped the sale. “People wanted to get out, so there was pent-up demand,” he says. “Folks were not traveling so there was disposable income, and we don’t recall a single client commenting to us, feeling uncomfortable. It was busy in here!” And perhaps most importantly, Wilkerson was easy to deal with, he says, and Susan, their personal Wilkerson consultant, was knowledgeable, organized and “really good.” Now, the company can focus on their remaining location — without the hassle of carrying over merchandise that either wouldn’t fit or hadn’t sold. “The decision to hire Wilkerson was a good one,” says Moses.
