We in the gem trade have always had to be held to a high standard.
very nice you feel that way. too bad all in the Gem Stone/ Jewelry
Industry's don't feel that way. I'm calling into question GIA
And prior to GIA, there was no standardization and no system of
evaluation to compare qualities of color or clarity.
Deceitfulness cannot exist where knowledge is presented.
So I pose this question, in speaking of GIA and “certification”, do
we think there is more fraud in diamonds or colored gems?
And please, when speaking of deceitfulness of GIA certs, please share
your experience, not just a criticism. Help others to understand how
to protect themselves from something you experienced.
I graduated In Residence, 1977, and I have had far more success from
using certs than any problems from using them in the 24 years of
having my retail store.
