WFDB Instructs Bourses To Adopt Diamond Declaration
The appended text to be added to invoices is as follows: "The diamonds herein invoiced are exclusively of natural origin and untreated based on personal knowledge and/or written assurances provided to us by the suppliers of these diamonds."

The move comes at a time when diamantaires are increasingly worried about reported cases in which lab-made diamonds were passed off as natural diamonds, which are significantly more expensive to produce.
