Synthetic or Man Made Diamonds
Whether you call them synthetic, artificial, cultivated, cultured, laboratory grown, or laboratory created, synthetic diamonds are made by man using science and not mined from the earth. They are produced in an artificial process, as opposed to natural diamonds from the mines, which are created by geological processes.
Ever since 1879, claims of artificially made diamonds have been made. Although these claims were carefully analyzed, none had been confirmed. In the 1950’s, the General Electric Company made the first commercial man made diamonds. They were called industrial diamonds and used in making tooling devices and cutting equipment. A Synthetic diamond is made by a number of processes. These processes include HPHT (high pressure high temperature) diamonds and CVD ( chemical vapor deposition) diamonds.
Jewelry grade synthetic diamonds came to the markets in the 1990’s and now are becoming more and more prevalent in the industry as time passes. These diamonds, regardless of what they are called, are real diamonds. They are chemically the same as mined stones. Jewelers are generally required to disclose the source of these gems as being created by man.
Smithsonian Gets its First Piece of Citrine Jewelry
Smithsonian Gets its First Piece of Citrine Jewelry Citrine has made it into the National Gem Collection at the Smithsonian in Washington DC, with a 177ct pear shaped Citrine with a tapering necklace chain of cushion cut matching stones mounted in 18k yellow gold. Citrine has long been sought for use in jewelry. But occasional exception stones combined with a very talented jewelry designer a piece special piece comes forth. This particular gem combined with a incredible designer have reach a new pinnacle by being the first Citrine design ever display at the museum. Although Citrine is in the Quartz class of semi precious gems, most citrine of gem quality comes from Brazil but is mined in a number of places most notable are Argentina, Bolivia, France, Madagascar, Myanmar (Burma), Namibia, Russia, Scotland, Spain, Uruguay and Zambia. As a gem it holds a spot in the hearts of many jewelry designers and now it has been recognized in a most proud means by being displayed in the national gem stone collection. I expect that with this new milestone for this long loved gem it will be showing up in more and more collections from designers around the world. After all very few gems get this level of recognition in the designers world. You can visit the exhibit at the Janet Annenberg Hall of Geology, Gems and Minerals at the Smithsonian Institute. December 16, 2015 On display as part of the Smithsonian’s National Gem Collection, the 18-karat yellow gold Jolie Citrine necklace features a 177.11-carat pear-shaped citrine drop. Washington–Angelina Jolie Pitt and jewelry designer Robert Procop have donated an “extraordinary” citrine necklace to the Smithsonian’s National Gem Collection. The 18-karat yellow gold necklace is from the Style of Jolie jewelry collection, the charitable collaboration between the actress and Procop, and features 64 graduated bezel-set cushion-cut citrines, with a 177.11-carat pear-shaped citrine drop. Named the Jolie Citrine Necklace, the piece went on display Friday in the Janet Annenberg Hall of Geology, Gems and Minerals, taking its place among such storied gems as the Hope diamond. It will remain there indefinitely. READ MORE…
Indiana Jeweler Killed, First Industry Homicide This Year
Indiana Jeweler Killed, First Industry Homicide This Year An Austin Indiana jeweler was shot to death on 7 November 2015, this illustrates the need for vigilance of personal safety. The gem and Jewelry trade has had these tragedies happen far too often over the years. Consider the JSA Jewelers Security Alliance for a resource of safety information. This industry is prone to such crisis issues and the more you know about how to secure your goods and yourself the safer it will be for you. Rob Bates | November 12 2015 The tragic killing of an Indiana jeweler marks the first industry-related homicide this year. According to Indiana state police, John Turner, 78, was killed by a gunshot wound sustained during a robbery on Nov. 7 at his Austin, Ind., store, John’s Coins and Jewelry. Police say they have nabbed a person of interest in the case, who was arrested on Nov. 9 along with two others who were wanted for auto theft. After a search of the property, police uncovered property, money, and jewelry linked to Turner’s murder. John Kennedy, president of the Jewelers’ Security Alliance, says that he was hoping that the year would end without any jewelers killed in the course of business. “It would have been the first year in history,” he says. He notes that homicides remain at historically low levels, due to greater support from law enforcement. Read More…
About birthstones The Gemological Institute of America (GIA) says the wearing of a single stone to represent the month a person was born started in the 1560’s and others say it began in the 18th century. Although lists can vary throughout time and geographical location, most can be traced back to a first century Jewish Historian named Josephus. Josephus tied the 12 stones of Aaron’s breastplate to the 12 months of the year and also the 12 signs of the Zodiac. During his time, early Christians would keep 12 stones and wear one per month. This later evolved into a person wearing just one stone to represent the month they were born.

Jewelry Designer Kara Ross Is Redefining Diamonds
Jewelry Designer Kara Ross Is Redefining Diamonds in a Truly Empowering Way Diamonds can be for girls to buy for to buy for themselves, this is the belief of New York Jewelry Designer Kara Ross and I agree, her designs are wonderful and should be worn by any woman who desires. Gemstones like diamonds are timeless to this day, but times are changing on the acceptance and desire of women to buy diamond designs for themselves. I feel that white diamonds are too limited when there are so many beautiful colored gems and colored diamonds on the gem markets to be ignored and not put in new concept jewelry designs. Countless possibilities are there for the use of white and colored diamonds for whimsical jewelry designs that a woman can treat herself to. Classical designs will always be in style, with many new concepts and the out of the box thinking that is coming into the gem and jewelry designers palette and reaching the markets. Kara Ross has long been passionate about rubies, emeralds, sapphires, and other rare gemstones. But it’s diamonds that are most captivating the fine jewelry designer these days—and not in the way that you’d think. The New York City designer has long pushed the envelope when it comes to creating unexpected, whimsical and artistic fine jewelry. And after making waves in the world of fine jewelry by drilling gems into baroque pearl (unheard-of!) setting semiprecious gemstones into fobs on handbags (jewelry on handbags!), Ross is daring to break another longstanding tradition in the category: She wants you to buy your own diamonds. “There is a stigma attached to buying a diamond, [mainly] that you have to wait until you get engaged to have one,” Ross told Glamour, “Women buy their own cars, houses—diamonds are the only commodity that still have the stigma that women shouldn’t buy themselves one. I want to break that.” And that’s just what Ross is doing with her new initiative and collection, called Diamonds Unleashed. Diamonds Unleashed is not simply a really gorgeous fine jewelry collection, it celebrates and supports women through various outlets including salons, where women can discuss important topics that make a difference and women’s charitable organizations across the world, such as She’s the First and Girls Who Code.

The integration of technology with the design industry will be an exciting thing to watch, dont be afraid to look into it all. LONDON — Jewelry is continuing to undergo a technological revolution of its own with the debut of Altruis, a collection that features a gemlike centerpiece of zirconia ceramic with an embedded chip that vibrates to alert the wearer to texts, calls and other iPhone alerts. Unlike some other tech-connected pieces with rubber wristbands or fluorescent fittings, the Altruis necklaces, rings and bracelets are plated in precious metals like platinum and rose gold, so there’s little wonder they drew the attention of fashion-forward boutiques like Browns in London and Fivestory in New York, which, along with Altruis’s own website, began selling some of the pieces in mid-December. “Altruis challenges what fashion is, and is creating its own category,” Holli Rogers, chief executive of Browns, said. Kate Unsworth, the 28-year-old founder and chief executive of Vinaya, the tech start-up behind Altruis, said that the idea had come to her because “I want to break the bad habit of checking our smartphones for the sake of it. I want to silence the digital noise but still be connected to the most important communication tools.” READ MORE… We are proud to be affiliated with the Jewelers Resource Bureau take a look they may be just what you need as a resource.

Jewelry Designers Honored At The 2016 GEM Awards
Jewelry Designers Honored At The 2016 GEM Awards Jewelry designers have been honored by the GEM Awards at the annual event held in Manhattan. Jewelry designers from the fine jewelry industry consider these awards as the “Academy Awards of Jewelry Design”. These awards are prestigious and an industry high point of the season. Jewelers of America sponsored this event which is in it’s 14th year. Jewelry designers have many different industry recognition awards throughout the jewelry world. The jewelry design industry is far more reaching than just one event such as the GEM Awards can cover. Many jewelry designers never see their designs in award ceremonies yet they have outstanding deigns and concepts for the jewelry market. It is such an expansive industry and has so many facets from fine jewelry to children’s jewelry no one award ceremony can cover it all. Aspiring designers sometimes are intimidated by the fact that they don’t feel their designs are up to the standard of the industry. Keep in mind that if your concepts are not for one genre` they will find there place in another area of the jewelry world. Just keep working and refining your designs until you find your niche in the jewelry design community. By Alexandra Suarez The annual GEM Awards is a gala event that is widely recognized as the “Academy Awards” of the fine jewelry industry. At this year’s 14th annual GEM Awards, which took place on Jan. 8 at Cipriani 42nd St. in Manhattan, some of the top fine jewelry designers and editors in the industry were honored for their achievements in design and innovation. The Jewelers of America (JA), a national trade association for business in the fine jewelry market, hosts the gala event in order to, “honor the achievements of individuals and companies whose work raises the visibility of fine jewelry and watches.” According to WWD, this year’s attendees included legendary names in the industry, from David Yurman and Stephen Webster to Pamela Love and Neiman Marcus’ Larry Pelzel.

Gemstone Treatments and Enhancements
Gemstone Treatments and Enhancements Heat treatment is the most common way to enhance the color and appearance of gemstones. Gemstone treating is not a new phenomenon and dates back as far as 50AD. Treating gemstones is normal in the industry and may or may not affect the value. High quality unheated rubies and sapphires are extremely rare and command a higher price over treated stones. These untreated stones comprise about ½ of 1% of the total market so a normal consumer is unlikely to find one at the local jewelry store. Most people buy jewelry for appearance so treated stones fill the bill nicely and keep the prices reasonable. Common Gemstones that are treated ◦Ruby: nearly all are heated to improve color and appearance. ◦Sapphire: nearly all are heated to improve color and appearance. ◦Tanzanite: heated to produce violet blue color. ◦Emerald: oiled with colorless oil to improve appearance. ◦Aquamarine: heated to improve color. ◦Blue topaz: irradiated and or heated to produce blue color. ◦Jade: generally impregnated with colored resins and or colorless waxes.
A simple Wax Carvers clients rock
A simple wax carver becomes rocking jewelry star Many people who design their own jewelry also carve the wax models for the production of the design. In some cases these designers have fame in two fields, a great wax carver is always in high demand. Paul Robilotti is one wax carver whose designs are very popular with rock stars, movie stars and presidents. Imagine having clientele so diverse after your jewelry designs. Mr Robilotti has done wax carvings for customers like De Beers, and Peter Max and more. His successes in both fields is somewhat unusual yet it demonstrates that no one should limit themselves. And jewelry designers who are not able to carve their own wax designs need a man like who understands both the design and wax portions of the industry. If you were asked what Keith Richards, Ronald Reagan and Whoppie Goldberg could possibly have in common, you’d probably come up empty. The fact is, they all have a piece of Paul Robilotti jewelry, either chosen for them by someone close to them who knows their taste or picked out by themselves. That goes to show you the range of his appeal and only hints at the level of quality in his work. You can learn more about Paul and his jewelry designs at his website, reached here. What many of his fans are not aware of — and the point of this page — is that he has also been a prolific and highly-sought-after modelmaker and wax carver for nearly 30 years. He has worked behind-the-scenes for many of New York City’s most accomplished design houses on Madison Ave, Seventh Ave. and in the 47th St. Diamond District. READ MORE…
Diamond Market Update: Sales, Prices Pick Up
Diamond Market Update: Sales, Prices Pick Up Caution is the word of the day when it comes to diamond prices at the moment, but if you will be needing a quality diamond for an upcoming jewelry design now may be the time to look. The latest rough sales have shown increases in prices so that means as they exit the cutting houses the prices for polished diamonds will rise as well. The markets for diamond jewelry remain soft and uncertain even with that rough sale prices rose. As amateur jewelry designers begin buying higher valued gems like diamonds caution is advised. Be sure who you are dealing with, be sure to ask for full disclosure of the gemstone for enhancements and source. Beginners should never be scared away from trying to do diamond designs but they need to ask for resources and information about how to buy wisely New York–Rough diamond sales and polished diamond prices continued their recovery in February, yet caution remains the trade’s watchword as global demand for diamonds still is relatively weak. In its monthly price report released Tuesday, Rapaport said that polished diamond prices remained firm last month. The RapNet Diamond Index (RAPI) for 1-carat GIA-graded diamonds rose for the fourth consecutive month, albeit very slightly (0.3 percent). Compared to a year ago, however, 1-carat diamond prices remain depressed, down 8 percent. Prices for 0.30-carat and 0.50-carat diamonds also were up in February, 0.4 percent and 0.7 percent, respectively. The RAPI for 3-carat diamonds slipped 1 percent. Rapaport noted in its report for February, “Midstream Inventory Replenishment,” that the upturn in polished prices is due mainly to shortages in select categories of better quality diamonds, not growth in demand for diamonds at the consumer level. Retail demand in the Far East remains weak and dealers are looking to the United States for “encouragement” as sales here are steady, but jewelers remain cautious. There are lingering concerns about the economy and the volatile stock market, and there’s also the fact that consumers tend to be more frugal during election years, the report noted. On the rough side of the market, both Rapaport and De Beers said that it continues to show signs of recovery as excess inventory, which kept manufacturers from buying in the second half of 2015 and caused them to cut back on production, works its way through the pipeline. De Beers reported Tuesday that preliminary results for its second sales cycle of the year indicate that it moved $610 million in rough diamonds, up from $545 million in the first sales cycle of the year and more than double the $248 million in rough it was selling at the end of 2015.

There are three good reasons why the FBI investigates jewelry and gem theft.
There are three good reasons why the FBI investigates jewelry and gem theft. There are many major gem thefts and robberies that cross state and national borders, so this is part of why the Federal Bureau of Investigation gets involved. Organized groups are often involved so diligence is important is keeping yourself, your employees and your goods safe… First, the thefts usually cross state and even national boundaries—so they need a federal agency with offices across the nation and overseas to investigate these highly mobile jewelry thieves. Second, these crimes are increasingly committed by organized criminal enterprises or “theft groups” that likewise require a federal agency with tough laws and with offices across the U.S. and overseas to bust. And third, these theft groups are often involved in other kinds of organized crime activities already under scrutiny by the FBI. Read More…

Diamond Cut: Anatomy of a Round Brilliant
Diamond Cut: Anatomy of a Round Brilliant A perfectly cut diamond is hard to achieve but should always be something strive for. This is a good article on the Brilliant Cut Diamond the Gemological Institute of America the worlds authority on diamonds has offered this for the public. It is well written so that anyone can understand what goes into a cut diamond and apply this knowledge to purchasing gems for your jewelry designs. The more one reads and researches the better choices and be made and it will show in your jewelry designs. The cut of a gemstone is very important to the presentation of the gem in jewelry. The brilliant cut was developed to get maximum light to enter the stone and reflect the brilliance of the piece in at it’s best. I have even he used this brilliant cut on my sapphire designs because it looks so good. It uses more gem weight but displays the gem in a better light than a step cut. A specific set of terms is used to describe parts of a polished diamond. Each part of a diamond makes its own contribution to the diamond’s appearance. In the standard round brilliant, there are 57 or 58 facets. The table facet, usually the largest facet on the diamond, helps gather light from above and either reflects it back to the observer or directs it into the diamond’s interior. The crown facets, consisting of 8 bezels, 8 stars, and 16 upper halves, gather and disperse light to create brightness, fire, and a scintillating pattern of light and dark. The pavilion facets, consisting of 16 lower halves, 8 mains, and an optional culet, reflect the light back through the crown to the viewer’s eye. All of these facets work together creating each diamond’s unique appearance. Average Girdle Diameter The diameter of a round diamond is the distance from one girdle edge to the opposite girdle edge, straight through the center. Because even well-cut round diamonds are never perfectly round, the diameter is measured in several places, recording the minimum (smallest) and maximum (largest) measurements. The average girdle diameter is a calculated value obtained by the following formula, which is then reported to the nearest hundredth of a millimeter (0.01 mm): Average girdle diameter = (minimum diameter + maximum diameter) ÷ 2 This proportion is used in calculating certain percentages such as table size, total depth, crown height, and pavilion depth.

Diamond Sales Light Up Solid Season for Jewelers
Diamond Sales Light Up Solid Season for Jewelers The early slowness of sales of seasonal sales turned out to be just a bump in the road. Diamond sales for the holiday season were stronger than expected and up by double digits overall. A few retailers showed minor dips in sales, but overall retail jewelry sales were better across the board. Other stones like Blue Zircon came into play this season as well. They have been gaining popularity and growing desire from the buying public, as well as the growth in sales for Paraiba tourmaline’s which are one of the new trending gems in the fashion industry. Marketing efforts have paid off however these efforts never end and continue to be a big part of sales efforts for most designers and jewelers. The markets have been somewhat nervous for a time but seem to be resilient and are making an effort to stabilize to some degree. Along with better diamond sale increased interest in colored gems has been seen as a trend for the coming 2016 sales season. Interest in Blue Sapphire and Morganite have been influenced by fashion designers and are expected to continue to see greater sales. The industry had a few jitters coming into the holiday season, but overall it appears better than expected particularly for diamonds and designer lines. After surveying nearly two dozen jewelers, JCK found that few saw declines, and even those whose sales dropped didn’t have huge falls. But quite a few said sales were flat. Among the trends we found this year: This was a last-minute nail-biting season, but in the end shoppers came through. As usual, jewelers griped that the weather hurt sales but this year the problem was good weather, as unseasonably warm temperatures dampened the holiday mood. Gemstones and silver also did well, although JCK heard less about charm brands than in past years.READ MORE… What is the Jewelers Resource Bureau?
