De Beers Group’s latest course ‘Synthetic Diamond Detection’, is to be held at the Birmingham Assay Office on Tuesday 26th March 2019. The one-day intensive course has been designed by the De Beers Group Institute of Diamonds, in response to the rise in synthetic diamonds and the risk they pose to the integrity of the jewelry industry.
Marion Wilson, Director of AnchorCert Academy, Birmingham Assay Office’s educational division said: “We understand the need to ensure the integrity of the industry against synthetic diamonds and greatly support De Beers Group’s aim to enhance the industry’s confidence in synthetic detection. We are therefore very pleased to be hosting the Synthetic Diamond Detection course here at the Birmingham Assay Office.
The course looks at detailed information on HPHT and CVD production methods which can, in turn, be used to demonstrate visual techniques for the identification of synthetic diamonds and simulants. Delegates will spend time completing practical exercises on studying a wide range of selected products including HPHT and CVD diamonds and using verification equipment.
De Beers Group Institute of Diamonds intermediate one-day intensive course, Synthetic Diamond Detection, is being held on Tuesday 26th March 2019, 8.45-17.00 at Birmingham Assay Office, 1 Moreton Street, Birmingham, B1 3AX.
