JA Convention to Feature Diamond Detection Lab

JA has announced the first annual Jewelers of America National Convention, an education-focused executive forum open to jewelry professionals, will prominently feature an interactive Diamond Detection Lab. The Convention will take place July 28-29, 2019, at the InterContinental New York Barclay in New York City.

The Diamond Detection Lab, sponsored by De Beers Group Industry Services, will feature a range of diamond detection technology. The Lab will be open during both days of the Convention and attendees will be able to educate themselves on advancements made in detection technology and test equipment from De Beers Group Industry Services, Gemological Institute of America (GIA), Taidiam Technology, Yehuda Diamond Company, and others.

“We are carefully crafting our education and content to address the needs of our members.

Bonaparte. “De Beers Group Industry Services’ mission to grown and strengthen confidence across the diamond industry is closely aligned with JA’s mission and they are a natural partner for the Diamond Detection Lab.”
