Press Release: On October 3, the Natural Color Diamond Association (NCDIA) will host a 2013  conference on brown diamonds at the Diamond Dealer’s Club in New York City. The spectrum of natural brown diamonds is often referred to as common color terms as champagne, cognac, chestnut, latte as well as trademarked names such as Le Vian’s Chocolate Diamonds™, and one of the NCDIA's goals is to help the trade expand selection of color descriptions to make it more friendly and understandable to consumers. These color schemes are an everyday part of the fashion world and lend themselves to perfect jewelry accessories.

This upcoming conference will feature presentations by leading scientists, gemologists and designers led by NCDIA’s director of education, Thomas Gelb, Wuyi Wang of the Gemological Institute of America (GIA), Eddie LeVian of LeVian Jewelry, Surbhi Pandya of YNY Jewels and Gary A. Roskin, GG, FGA and publisher and host of the Roskin Gem News. Retailers, manufacturers, designers and press are all encouraged to attend the conference.

There will be an extensive exhibit of designer jewelry and unset loose brown family diamonds, including pinkish and reddish, which show the diversity and creative designs they have inspired. There will be plenty of time for networking, meeting new people, enhancing existing relationships and creating business opportunities.

“It’s important that our industry is able to speak honestly and intelligently about natural color diamonds, so everyone up the chain is providing a comprehensive message from wholesaler, to the designer, to manufacturing and ultimately at retail level,” noted NCDIA's vice president, Alan Bronstein. “Consumer awareness and demand for brown diamonds is on the rise, and as an educational resource, NCDIA is uniquely positioned to provide the necessary information to promote brown diamonds to consumers.”

The brown diamond conference is being held on October 3,  from 6 p.m to 9 p.m.  at the Diamond Dealers Club, located at 580 Fifth Avenue in Manhattan. Cocktails and light refreshments will be served. There is no cost to attend this event and members and non-members are welcome to attend.
