With existing certifications and protocols unable to effectively stop the infiltration of blood diamonds from 'clean' supply chains, the diamond industry is overdue for the implementation of new tech that can offer increased levels of transparency and traceability.
Cameron Scadding and Grant Erskine sat down with The National Association of Jewellers last month to discuss our work in diamond provenance and gold fingerprinting and how we can contribute to solving this global problem.
We answer the following questions in the webinar:
- What diamond provenance really means.
- How scientific methods can identify the true origin of a diamond.
- The difference between chain-of-custody, traceability and provenance.
- How scientific methods complement digital traceability systems.
