Mr Khikhinashvili said man-made diamond demand is growing fast as buyers are concerned about the environmental impact of its mining and seek gems untainted by conflict zones.

This is evident at jewelry shows in Las Vegas, Basel, Dubai and Hong Kong where customers favor innovations as value added.  Historic milestones in diamond development generate positive attention based on these social concerns.

Thus, NDT finds that socially sensitive buyers, especially numerous among Millennials, have a marked preference for lab grown diamonds, bearing re-assuring individual birth certificates that signal virtuous behavior among contemporises.
