DiamondView is a desktop diamond verification instrument for loose and some mounted stones, designed to authenticate diamonds and synthetic diamonds. DiamondView is manually operated and requires an operator to interpret the test results.

It is typically used as a means of examining referral diamonds, but the instrument can be used independently as well.

The performance metrics shown below are based on testing done in 2019 using the ASSURE 1.0 test standard and sample sets. More recent test results for DiamondView can be found here in the ASSURE 2.0 Directory.

Stone Testing Capability

Weight: 0.05 ct-10 ct
Colour: All
Shape: All
Diamond Simulants: No
Mounted Stones: Yes (not yet ASSURE Tested)

Instrument Performance

The below results demonstrate the performance of the DiamondView with the ASSURE 1.0 Core Sample:

Diamond False Positive Rate (optimal rate 0%): 0%
Diamond Referral Rate (optimal rate 0%): N/A
Diamond Accuracy Rate (optimal rate 100%): 100%
Speed (stones tested per hour): 112

The ASSURE 1.0 Core Sample consists of 1,000 loose diamonds, 200 loose synthetic diamonds and 200 loose diamond simulants. The stones are 0.02ct to 0.20ct in D-J colour.

Instrument Capabilities

Automated Feed: No
Automated Results: No
Automated Dispense: No
Detect or Refer (Synthetic Diamonds): Detect
Detect or Refer (Diamond Simulants): N/A
Multiple Stones at Once: No
Training Required: Yes, including familiarisation with a DiamondView image library

DiamondView displays images and based on visual analysis the operator concludes the nature of the stones. The following results can be concluded by the operator based on the data generated:

  1. Diamond
  2. Synthetic diamond

An experienced user can judge whether the stone under test is a natural or synthetic diamond. In very few cases additional measurements may need to be carried out.
