HRD Antwerp, Europe’s leading authority in diamond certification, released its new D-Scope+ at the Hong Kong Jewellery and Gem Fair. “The D-Scope has been the indispensable analysis tool for all types of diamonds and gemstones since 2001. Our research and development team has worked very hard to further optimize every aspect of our microscope to create the D-Scope+. With this tool we now offer not only the best, but also the most innovative diamond analysis experience on the market”, said Michel Janssens, CEO of HRD Antwerp.

The D-Scope+ features improvements from the original D-Scope such as the illumination, ease of manipulation and ergonomics of the microscope. The illumination now offers a dark-field lighting technology, which allows the user to choose between three different shades of light:  a yellow tinge, white daylight and extremely strong white light. “This makes the clarity analysis experience more efficient, since these different color-temperatures are perfect for studying all kinds of internal and external characteristics of the diamond”, Mr. Janssens continues. The original vacuum gem manipulator has not been changed, however the D-Stick was redesigned in order to improve comfort while manipulating the stone. Other improvements were made in order to ensure comfort for long-lasting sessions. “The D-Scope+ truly is the diamond microscope reinvented, and we believe it will help industry professionals to conduct their diamond analysis in a more efficient way”, Mr. Janssens concludes.

The D-Scope+ can be seen at HRD Antwerp’s booth - AWE 5B22 - at the Hong Kong Jewellery and Gem Fair until September 17, and will be commercially available as from the beginning of 2018.
