Display of synthetic diamonds is forbidden at the ADTF

19 january 2016
The display of synthetic diamonds is strictly forbidden at the Antwerp Diamond Trade Fair, which will take January 31 – February 2, the AWDC informed.
Since 2014, the main topic of discussion in all the diamond centers has been the undisclosed mixing of small synthetic stones into parcels of natural diamonds.
Although the total numbers are not alarming, the pace of growth of these submissions has been picking up.
The ADTF, which enjoys industry wide international support, now stands at the top of the agenda and calendar of international diamond buyers from the jewellery industry and trade.
Invitations to the ADTF can be obtained directly from the organizers, either through referral by one of the ADTF exhibitors, or through registering on the website of the Fair at www.antwerpdiamondfair.com.
The Antwerp Diamond Trade Fair is powered by the Antwerp World Diamond Centre (AWDC).
