screening and detection of undisclosed lab grown diamonds

Gemological Science International (GSI), one of the largest gemological entities in the world, is opening a second laboratory facility in New York focused on the screening and detection of undisclosed lab-grown diamonds in jewelry.

Located at 587 Fifth Avenue, GSI's new laboratory is 4,200-square-feet covering the entire ninth floor of the building where the organization will expand its service offerings and continue its groundbreaking work.

"The opening of this laboratory allows us to expand upon the extraordinary work the team at GSI is doing for the screening and detection of undisclosed lab-grown diamonds and simulants both in loose parcels and mounted jewelry," said Debbie Azar, President and Co-Founder of Gemological Science International. "We identify undisclosed lab-grown diamonds on a daily basis within our worldwide facilities, and the opening of this laboratory will allow us to continue to be an innovator and help us develop methods to help protect the industry."

Coinciding with the opening of the new office, Azar will be one of a few esteemed panelist scheduled to participate in the "Solving the Lab-Grown Diamond Detection Panel" at the Jewelers of America National Convention on Sunday, July 28 from 10:45 - 11:45 AM. The panel will be discussing the industry's latest measures and tactics to ensure transparency of the diamond industry, the industry supply chain and maintain the industry's integrity. The convention will be taking place July 28-20, 2019 at the InterContinental New York Barclay.
