The advancements of technology in the field of gemology and in gemstone treatments makes analysis and certification a vital part of the gemstone buying process. Understanding the informed opinions of a certified gemologist and a laboratory lends a true perspective on the properties and the origins of the gemstone. From the gems Color, Cut, Clarity, Carat Weight to more specific details like the Refractive Index, Specific Gravity, Treatments, Fluorescence and Origin in some cases, understanding the unique properties of a gemstone is key.
Certification also lends a good reflection into the price of the gemstone. Depending on various treatments and different qualities, a certificate offers both the buyer and the seller confidence in what they are selling and justification for the price of a gemstone.
Always cross check reports and their Report Numbers or QR codes online to validate the authenticity of the laboratory and the report issued. All reputable gemstone or diamond laboratories offer the option to verify their reports building confidence in the consumer.
