Our Report Process
Our Report Types
Throughout the entire gemological process, we maintain the highest levels of security and manage your stone with the utmost care. Our team takes detailed observations of your gemstone and each one is inspected by at least three different gemologists to ensure that they are no errors. They carefully assess and interpret data collected to produce the most accurate information in regards to the color grade, treatment, and origin of your gemstone.
The Origin Report verifies the authenticity of gemstones, identifies whether they have undergone any treatment (e.g. heating), specifies the stone’s origin and determines their trade color whenever possible.
The Identification Report verifies the authenticity of gemstones, identifies whether they have undergone any treatment (e.g., heating), and determines their trade color whenever possible.
Gemstones That We Test
We test a wide range of gemstones and because of our extensive database and reference collection, our gemological processes remain consistently high across all the different varieties of gemstones available in the market.
