RAPAPORT... WD Lab Grown Diamonds has created what it claims to be the world’s largest known synthetic diamond made using chemical vapor deposition (CVD).

The ideal-cut, round brilliant, 9.04-carat, VS2-clarity stone broke the synthetic-diamond producer’s own previous world record of 6 carats, the company said last week.

“No other CVD-diamond manufacturer has come close to this size and quality,” Clive Hill, its founder and chairman, claimed. “But this is not an easy task, and we overcame significant hurdles that we’ll undoubtedly face and overcome again.”

WD Lab Grown Diamonds intends to work on producing even larger CVD synthetics, Hill added.
