IGI launches Diamond Typing service

The International Gemological Institute (IGI) has announced the addition of a new identification offering to its wide array of existing gemological services. IGI Diamond Typing, available via the New York Laboratory, was created in response to client demand and overall industry need. A diamond’s type is integral in determining the stone’s color and can distinguish likely candidates for HPHT color treatment process and/or artificial irradiation.

Diamonds fall into four major types, Ia, Ib, IIa and IIb, based on the concentration levels of nitrogen and/or boron in a given stone, as well as the state of aggregation of present nitrogen within its crystal lattice.

If a diamond is determined fit for color treatment, knowing the type aids in establishing the proper treatment conditions (temperature, pressure, irradiation, etc.) and assists in forecasting the color of the diamond after treatment.

“Diamond typing is a crucial first step in the color treatment of diamonds and this new service can assist both our clients and the industry as a whole,” stated IGI President and CEO Jerry Ehrenwald, GG, ASA.

In addition, diamond typing plays an important role in distinguishing true “Canary” diamonds (type Ib) and true Golconda diamonds (type IIa).

Customers can submit up to 10 diamonds, regardless of individual weight, to IGI’s New York laboratory (located at 589 Fifth Avenue) for typing, which costs $150.00. If less than 10 stones are submitted, the fee remains the same. The client will receive a document that attests to the type of each submitted diamond, in addition to its weight and measurements. Turnaround time for this service is 48 hours.

Start-to-Finish LLC, manufacturer of affordable diamond link bracelets, has announced a new product, the Bracelet Weight, developed based on a customer request to have her link bracelet kept in place on her wrist. Bracelet owners with several links - regardless of the manufacturer - experience rotation whereby the snake chain and clasp are more often on the top of the wrist than the links. The retail jeweler who made the initial request could not find an advertised product to meet the need. Start-to-Finish set out to provide an affordable way to ensure the customer enjoys only the beautiful part of the link bracelet, whether made by Start-to-Finish or its competitors.
