RAPAPORT... Diamond Services developed a new mini Raman spectrometer that it says is able to detect synthetic and color-treated diamonds and gemstones that are falsely presented as diamonds. The device will be unveiled at the Hong Kong Jewellery & Gem Fair in September.

  • The desktop-size device will provide individual diamond and jewelry companies the same technology previously used exclusively by gemology labs to detect synthetic diamonds. 
  • The spectrometer is able to accurately detect diamonds grown using high-pressure-high-temperature (HPHT) and chemical vapor deposition (CVD) techniques, HPHT color-treated diamonds and diamond simulants.
  • The spectrometer system is now undergoing final testing and 40 units have already been ordered on spec.
  • Diamond Services is a Hong Kong-based company founded by current president Joseph Kuzi in 2012. The company is committed to releasing one new synthetic diamond detection device per year.
