The Gemstone market is constantly changing and in motion. The techniques and technology to create imitations, synthetics (‘laboratory grown’ or ‘lab grown’), or to artificially alter the appearance of diamonds and gemstones are rapidly evolving and increasingly more difficult to detect. For consumer and professionals, it has become virtually impossible to separate one from another. However there can be substantial differences in value. That is why the diamond, gemstone and jewellery market need professional gemstone testing laboratories : to ensure trust and confidence between seller and buyer.
