The GIA's recent findings on lab grown diamonds having fake inscriptions is great cause for concern, and sadly not a surprise to my industry.
As mentioned in my previous blog post (https://catherineangiel.com/blogs/jewelry/the-difference-between-lab-grown-and-natural-diamonds), the lab grown diamond trend leaves the jewelry industry very leery about the popularity among consumers, the value of the stones, and more importantly how many countries would suffer from the loss of natural diamond sales.
Industry experts often see consumers fall victim to fads, believing what they read online as the undeniable truth. Gaining knowledge is important, however to gain the knowledge of an expert takes years of experience, which is why it is advised to meet with a qualified expert and review stones in person.
Two diamonds can have the 'same' characteristics, but will differ in both price and beauty. This applies to all diamonds, both natural and lab grown.
