The process for detecting HPHT lab-grown diamonds includes analyzing the physical characteristics of the diamond and submitting it for a lab test. Visual inspection is the first step and involves checking for irregularities in the diamond’s shape, symmetry, and proportions. The diamond’s color, clarity and fluorescence can also be examined. If the diamond appears to be lab-grown, an on-site spectrometer or phoscporacnce like Diatrue device or microscope can be used to further analyze the diamond’s internal structure. In addition, the diamond can be submitted to a lab for an advanced chemical analysis, such as a Raman or Infrared spectroscopy. This analysis will provide a detailed report of the diamond’s internal structure, which can then be compared to that of a natural diamond.
