Synthetic Diamonds

Synthetic diamonds are diamonds that have been created with special equipment in a laboratory. These synthetic diamonds have the almost identical optical, chemical and physical properties as natural diamonds. Gem-quality synthetic diamonds have found a niche in the market as a new product category available to consumers and the jewelry industry must to ensure that synthetic diamonds are disclosed in a responsible manner.

It is Jewelers of America’s position that synthetic diamonds, like all gemstone and jewelry products, must be described accurately at every level of the distribution chain with disclosure of all relevant information in accordance with Federal Trade Commission Guidelines. As a jewelry professional, it’s imperative that you understand the facts to discuss synthetics with your customers.
