As quoted in the market news:

The recent wave of concern has so far not been confirmed by concrete evidence of a high-volume case involving undisclosed synthetic diamonds. The last such occurrence that was widely reported was in May 2012 when the International Gemological Institute (IGI) said it received several hundred Chemical Vapor Deposition (CVD) synthetic diamonds at its labs in Antwerp and Mumbai to be certified as natural diamonds.
