said, “We will now be able to de­tect HPHT Type IIb syn­thetic di­a­monds im­me­di­ately and with ab­so­lute re­sults, with the in­tro­duc­tion of ‘Quick-Check’. This af­ford­able de­vice will be able to cur­tail the threat of mix­ing of syn­thetic di­a­monds in the mar­ket. This is so es­sen­tial to main­tain cus­tomer con­fi­dence. I in­vite re­tail­ers and man­u­fac­tur­ers to come for­ward and avail the ben­e­fits of this in­stru­ment.”

Praveen­shankar Pandya, chair­man of the Gem & Jew­ellery Ex­port Pro­mo­tion Coun­cil, said, “We wish to safe­guard our­selves against any threat of il­licit mix­ing of syn­thet­ics with nat­u­ral di­a­monds. With the ad­vent of this in­stru­ment, the in­dus­try will ben­e­fit the most as the de­tec­tion of syn­thetic di­a­monds with this in­stru­ment will help the sup­ply of nat­u­ral di­a­monds to flour­ish. I am very im­pressed with the ease of use and af­ford­abil­ity of this in­stru­ment.”

Rus­sell Mehta, vice-chair­man, GJEPC, added, “This is a land­mark achieve­ment by the GII. In­dia is one of the largest hubs for di­a­mond pro­cess­ing and this ini­tia­tive will build more con­fi­dence in the trade cir­cles.”
