GSI Launches Lab Grown Diamond Course, First For Industry October 20, 2020 (0 comments)


New York, NY--Gemological Science International (GSI) announces the launch of its new online education course, Laboratory-Grown Diamond Essentials, the industry’s first educational course dedicated exclusively to laboratory-grown diamonds.

The lab-grown diamond sector is experiencing rapid growth and increasing demand for product. GSI has graded and identified hundreds of thousands of laboratory-grown diamonds, and its team of researchers and scientists have made several notable discoveries relating to lab-grown diamond identification. 

"It is imperative that the jewelry industry has the ability to communicate about laboratory-grown diamonds confidently and with transparency. GSI, as an expert laboratory in testing and detecting laboratory-grown diamonds, is happy to share our knowledge with the industry. We're excited that we can offer an online resource that any member of the industry will find value in referencing." said Alethea Inns, GSI’s chief learning officer.

“There are many nuances when it comes to lab grown diamonds; from their growth methods and treatments, to understanding the various inclusions, color undertones and other factors. It’s not exactly the same as natural diamonds,” added Debbie Azar, president and co-funder of GSI.

Earlier this year, GSI became the first major laboratory to announce it would be disclosing the growth method and any post-growth treatments or enhancements—or lack thereof--on its LGX Lab Grown Diamond Report.
