Hello and welcome to The ultimate online course on laboratory-grown diamonds. I'm Julia, the course creator and your tutor for this course, and I can't wait to share all of the facts about lab-grown diamonds with you. If you're intimidated by this topic— please don't be. We're going to break it all down into digestible steps.

Here are our objectives for this course;

First, you're going to get the background information on lab-grown diamonds; their history, how they are made, and the specific features and qualities of each type of lab-grown diamond.

Then, we will compare all the features of lab-grown diamonds against natural diamonds. In this section you will learn all the differences that can help you separate these stones through; observation and basic test results; such as fluorescence, phosphorescence and crossed polarised filters.

From there, we will discuss the different types of equipment available, for both screening and advanced testing. We will discuss the test results that help you identify the natural versus lab-grown origins and we'll also run through a step-by-step guide on how to identify lab-grown diamonds. 

You'll also learn about the grading of these stones, possible treatments and all other facts to do with lab-grown diamonds. 

By the end of this course, you'll have achieved a thorough understanding of lab-grown diamonds and you'll feel confident about your abilities and any limitations of identifying these stones diamonds for yourself. This course comes with multiple PDF downloads and you have access to the course for life, so you can come back anytime and review the chapters.
