CIBJO, the World Jewelery Confederation, which had previously only approved the use of the word “synthetic” in reference to diamonds created in a lab, has now expanded the number of terms it deems acceptable to use in reference to the stones.
In the interest of consumer protection, CIBJO accepted the terms ‘laboratory-grown’ diamond, ‘laboratory-created’ diamond and ‘synthetic’ diamond to describe non-natural diamonds.
Previously, CIBJO only recognized the term “synthetic” to describe lab-grown diamonds. The decision to broaden its definition of acceptable terminology brings the international organization in line with the position adopted earlier by other major industry groups regarding lab-grown diamonds.
