RAPAPORT... The Gemological Institute of America (GIA) and the World Federation of Diamond Bourses (WFDB) announced an agreement to make synthetic diamond detection devices available at  bourses.

In a joint statement, Ernie Blom, the WFDB's president,  and Tom Moses, GIA's executive vice president, reiterated WFDB's commitment to enforcing “zero tolerance” for non-disclosure of synthetic stones. GIA's detection assistance to member bourses will permit members to identify illegal mixes of synthetic stones with natural diamond parcels.

Blom added that all participants in the value chain need to work together to protect the industry and ensure positive consumer confidence in natural diamonds.
