Transparency for Treated Diamonds

Transparency for Treated Diamonds

An article in our last newsletter about diamond enhancement treatments provoked much discussion amongst our clients. Since then a meeting between the World Jewellery Confederation (CIBJO) and the International Standards Organisation (ISO) has explicitly decreed that, without further qualification, the term ‘diamond’ always implies a natural diamond. We applaud this decision.
ISO International Standard 18323 unambiguously bars the use of adjectives such as ‘cultured’ and ‘cultivated’, as well as ‘real’, ‘genuine’, ‘precious’ and ‘gem’ to describe any synthetic diamond. The use of such words can be considered deceptive.
