WD Lab Grown Diamonds And GCAL To Host Webinar

WD Lab Grown Diamonds will host a joint webinar alongside the Gem Certification and Assurance Lab (GCAL). “From Seed to Certification: A Behind-the-Scenes Tour of the Diamond Growth and Certification Process,” will be presented on Thursday, Feb. 10, at 3 p.m. ET—just three days away.

“As consumer demand for lab-grown diamonds continues its exponential rise, it is more important than ever for retailers and their sales teams to understand the lab-diamond growth process, as well as the certification process, and to be able to accurately and confidently answer customer questions,” read a release about the event.

The webinar, which will be followed by an open Q&A session, will include a step-by-step process of how WD’s diamonds are grown, shared by crystal growth scientist and WD’s chief process officer Jonathan Levine-Miles, Ph.D. GCAL’s chief operating officer Angelo Palmieri will then walk through the process of testing, grading, and certifying lab-grown diamonds.

Registration for Thursday’s webinar can be found here.
