RAPAPORT... GIA expects to open a diamond synthesis facility in New Jersey in January, Tom Moses, GIA executive vice president and chief laboratory and research officer, told participants at Israel’s International Diamond Week on Sunday.

The site is planned to be a research facility for GIA gemologists to analyze synthetic diamonds and practices by lab-grown diamond producers, Moses said. The group is also expanding its Israel operations in order to grade a larger volume of diamonds.

Telling event participants that synthetic, lab-grown diamonds are now a fact of life for the industry, Moses said that there had been significant technological progress in CVD diamonds in recent years. While he expects CVD diamonds will be primarily for commercial use, some of the product will reach the jewelry industry.
