One of the key recommendations of the recent NDMC study was improving detection technology for the industry. It is imperative for the gem & jewellery industry to keep abreast about the knowledge & information on synthetic diamonds, its detection through various technologies available, based on which objective, GJEPC in association with Bharat Diamond Bourse (BDB) had organized Diamond Detection Expo & Symposium (DDES 2015) from 15th – 16th Dec 2015 in Mumbai. In the recent past, there has been increase in production of gem quality synthetic stones. There has also been rise in cases of instances faced by buyers finding that the diamonds they had purchased as believing to be Natural Diamonds were actually discovered later to be Synthetic Diamonds. In light of the seriousness of such allegations, the GJEPC saw it as a critical responsibility to study the issue of undisclosed mixing in more detail and then outline any actions that may be required to address it. The main objectives are driving segregation technology innovation and adoption; driving innovation by ensuring coordination among research bodies; coordinating with device manufacturers to increase scale of production; and driving towards lower acquisition costs by enabling scale and ensuring wide participation of players.
