Jewelers of America and IGI are pleased to present an educational webinar at 2:00 PM Eastern Time Wednesday December 2.
Beyond the basics
This webinar will feature the latest information from the World Leader in Lab-Grown Diamond Grading: We all know common answers regarding appearance, pricing and sustainability. There is a wealth of information beyond the basics recited by most professionals which can be used as conversation points with clients. Learn physical differences, distinctive characteristics and quality-factors attributable to growth methods and timelines.
The topics discussed will include equipment standards, contaminants and growth-timelines which influence finished quality in both HPHT and CVD produced crystals – and distinctive lab-grown clarity characteristics experienced gemologists and jewelers are learning to identify with loupes and microscopes.
Whether you sell lab-grown diamonds or not, teaching your clients something new builds trust in your professional expertise.
