Sundance Diamonds, a high pressure high temperature diamond processing company, said Thursday that it is opening a diamond testing service in New York City. At no charge to the trade, the testing will indicate if HPHT processing can increase the value of a diamond to a colorless, near colorless, or fancy yellow, orange or pink color.
The by-appointment-only facility is located at the 47th Street Diamond District. Through its exclusive Sundance technology, customers will learn the diamond type of each submitted stone and an estimate of the final result of HPHT before committing to processing, said Russ Myers, Sundance Diamonds, general manager.
“The ability to evaluate natural diamonds for potential color improvement provides manufacturers and dealers with a valuable tool that will maximize their diamond inventory,” Myers said.
All HPHT processing is done at Sundance Diamonds headquarters in Orem, Utah.
To make an appointment for free testing at the 47th Street facility, manufacturers and dealers can call Sundance Diamonds headquarters at 801-426-0431.
Sundance Diamonds is a division of US Synthetic, Orem, Utah, the world’s largest manufacturer of polycrystalline diamonds for use in oil and gas exploration. The parent company is the Dover Corp., New York City, a worldwide diversified manufacturer of proprietary products and components for industrial and commercial use.
