Intercept Jewelry Care product samples

Yehuda Diamond Company’s recently updated  Sherlock Holmes 3.0 diamond detector is capable of screening for both CVD and HPHT lab-grown diamonds.

The updated device has a new folding screen that lifts to make it easier to view stone images. Capable of screening up to 18 rings at one time, the device offers 8X magnification and improved sensitivities for better analysis of test results. An internal long UV test helps to reduce false-positive results. Featuring the ability to save test results on a memory stick, the portable unit comes with a travel bag, and its software can be automatically updated via WiFi.

ASSUREDLY Sherlock Holmes!

The ASSURE Program is a testing regimen for Diamond Verification Instruments, developed by the Diamond Producers Association (DPA), giving you reliable, third-party approved insights that will support your purchasing decisions. A Diamond Verification Instrument is a device used to separate and/or identify diamonds from synthetic diamonds. They are also known as synthetic diamond screening or synthetic diamond detection devices.

There are 3 Types of Synthetic Diamond Detectors:

Yehuda’s Sherlock Holmes Detector is a type three. Of the 29 detectors comprehensively tested by the ASSURE Program, only 12 were type three, capable of checking parcels of diamonds and multiple pieces of mounted jewelry. The most important factor among  these 16 detectors is their synthetic diamond detection rate. The all new Sherlock Holmes 3.0 detector, and its predecessor the 2.0, are able to detect 100% of all lab-grown diamonds!
