How Does it Operate?
The instrument tests individual loose and mounted stones and automatically displays a test result. The user manually places the loose stone onto the testing area or direct the measurement probe onto the table of the mounted stone and the instrument automatically makes a measurement and displays a result.
The DiamondDect 3 displays one of the following results:
- ‘CVD Synthetic’
The ‘abnormal’ results could contain potential synthetic diamonds and diamonds. These referrals shall be tested further for full verification. Taidiam recommends further testing by a gemmological laboratory.
DiamondDect 3 need to be recalibrated before usage or after it has been moved.
DiamondDect 3 was tested in accordance with the Diamond Verification Instrument Standard with the test protocol for instruments that separate diamonds from synthetic diamonds (Operating Category 1).
The tests took place at the independent laboratory UL in Canton, Massachusetts, United States. The tests were performed by a novice operator. DiamondDect 3 was tested with the ASSURE Core Sample and the ASSURE Smalls Sample.
The UL test report including more detailed test results can be found here.
ASSURE Core Sample
The ASSURE Core Sample consists of 1,000 loose diamonds and 200 loose synthetic diamonds. The stones are 0.02 ct to 0.20 ct in D-J colour. The below results are from the test with the ASSURE Core Sample.
|Diamond False Positive Rate||Ratio of synthetic diamonds incorrectly classified as 'diamond' to the total number of synthetic diamonds||0%|
|Diamond Referral Rate||Ratio of diamonds being referred for further testing to the total number of diamonds||0.6%|
|Diamond Accuracy||Ratio of diamonds correctly classified as 'diamond' to the total number of diamonds||96.4%|
|Synthetic Diamond False Positive Rate||Ratio of diamonds incorrectly classified as 'synthetic diamond' to the total number of diamonds||3%|
|Speed||Stones tested per hour||289|
ASSURE Smalls Sample
The ASSURE Smalls Sample consists of 1,000 loose diamonds and 200 loose synthetic diamonds. The stones are 0.005 ct to 0.02 ct in D-J colour. The below results are from the test with the ASSURE Smalls Sample.
|Diamond False Positive Rate||Ratio of synthetic diamonds incorrectly classified as 'diamond' to the total number of synthetic diamonds||1.0%|
|Diamond Referral Rate||Ratio of diamonds being referred for further testing to the total number of diamonds||4%|
|Accuracy Rate||Ratio of diamonds correctly classified as 'diamond' to the total number of diamonds||90.6%|
|Synthetic Diamond False Positive Rate||Ratio of diamonds incorrectly classified as 'synthetic diamond' to the total number of diamonds||5.5%|
|Speed||Stones tested per hour||289|
