The World Federation of Diamond Bourses (WFDB) has noted with concern the growing tendency of undisclosed synthetic diamonds to enter the market.
The Federation has put out an official warning that it will not stand for the passing off of synthetics as natural. The diamond and Jewellery industry needs to understand that they are personally responsible for what they sell, which is why it is of the utmost importance to know your supplier and the legitimacy of their product whether it is ensuring they are Kimberley Process compliant or disclosing synthetics.
The law is clear and the punishment for fraud will be pursued. The WFDB will work with all legal agencies across the globe to assist in the prosecution of those who participate in this type of fraud in the diamond industry.
DCLA is the only laboratory that guarantees all diamonds have been tested for treatments and natural origin. DCLA is the only laboratory working to the International Diamond Council (IDC) rules in Australia.
