DE BEERS’ SYNTHDETECT FOR SET DIAMOND JEWELRY NOW AVAILABLE FOR RETAILERS
12 September 2017
The International Institute of Diamond Grading & Research (IIDGR), a De Beers Group company, has announced that the industry's first synthetic screening device for set jewelry, SYNTHdetect, is now available for delivery.

The device, unveiled in June this year, is the only synthetic screening device that has been designed specifically for jewelry retailers allowing them to quickly and easily ensure the authenticity of the diamonds they purchase, says De Beers.

Rather than seeking to identify synthetic characteristics in a stone, as other devices do, the SYNTHdetect reportedly uses the unique approach of detecting whether diamonds are natural. The result is that the device has a very low referral rate at around 0.05 per cent, according to the announcement.

The instrument, which costs US$16,250, uses IIDGR's patented luminescence technology to rapidly and simultaneously screen stones set in a wide range of jewelry pieces, without the need for a probe.

IIDGR President Jonathan Kendall says, "Since unveiling SYNTHdetect in June, we have already received significant interest and pre-orders from many of the world's leading jewellery retailers, demonstrating a strong desire from the industry for a device that allows them to quickly and easily screen diamonds at their own premises."

Continues Kendall: "With the industry's lowest referral rate, SYNTHdetect dramatically reduces the need for additional off-site testing, making it the ideal solution for retailers and jewellery manufacturers."
