AGA Las Vegas Conference - May 28, 2015, 1-5 p.m.

Synthetic Diamonds: The Products, The Perceptions, and The Retailers

AGA Las Vegas Conference 2015, to delve deeper in the synthetic diamond trade. As a follow up to last year's highly successful Vegas Conference, the association has tapped gem industry expert Gary Roskin to moderate this half-day program. This event will feature leading innovators from the synthetic diamond industry to discuss current market conditions including availability and sales trends.

In recent years the international jewelry trade has been assured that synthetic diamonds are detectable and that producers are following stringent disclosure policies and yet headlines reporting that undisclosed, gem quality lab grown diamonds are being encountered by major laboratories in both "fancy" colors and colorless range are becoming more frequent. The AGA is assembling experts that can and will explore the detection, market perceptions and pricing of synthetic diamonds from the producer to the retail level of the market. The conference will feature presentations, a town hall style moderated discussion and hands-on sessions. With natural diamond supplies reportedly growing increasingly tight and synthetics producers reportedly expanding their production and markets, knowledge is key to navigating this increasingly complex diamond market.
