The fourth episode of Rapaport’s GEMTalks series will feature a discussion on the evolution of lab-grown diamonds with special guests Tom Moses and Dr. Wuyi Wang of the Gemological Institute of America (GIA). 

Moses, executive vice president and chief laboratory and research officer at the GIA, and Wang, the institute’s vice president for research and development, will speak with Rapaport’s Leah Meirovich about how and when synthetics first came on the market, the various rules surrounding its nomenclature, and the impact they have had on natural diamonds. Sponsored by GIA, the LinkedIn Live session will help shed light on the stones’ rise in popularity and drop in value. 

The experts will also touch on treatments, advances in technology, and how the institute’s many years of extensive research have enabled it to determine lab-grown from natural.  

This episode of the GEMTalks LinkedIn Live is brought to you by GIA— The Gemological Institute of America — protecting consumers and supporting the global gem and jewelry trade since 1931 through research, education and laboratory services. 

“The Evolution of Lab-Grown Diamonds & Identifying Them with Certainty” will take place on Tuesday, July 16, at 10 a.m. EDT. Register for the event by clicking here
