Natural (mined) diamonds and 'Memorial Diamonds'?

Can anyone tell the difference between 'natural' (mined) diamonds and man-made laboratory grown 'Memorial Diamonds'? We are asked this all the time. The simple answer is NOT EASILY.
Our Canary yellow diamonds test as 'Diamonds' (as real diamonds do). But both our free-range Blue diamonds and Natural diamonds conduct electrcity due to boron, so will give 'false-positives' on many cheap diamond testers where results may be interpreted as 'Moissanite' (a simulant). Only very expensive equipment used by 'AnchorCert' and developed by 'De Beers' can truly identify our genuine memorial diamonds.
