Gems play a huge role in the world
economy and there are a lot of specifications, technical remarks, and
identities that lay on them which may not recognizable by our naked eyes or by
a simple look. All shining metals that are sold off as gems are not in actual
Testing and Diagnostics help
differentiate original gems from unoriginal. The quality, cut, clarity, colour,
synthetic properties or otherwise, origin, parcel deposition, and so on.
When potential customers wish to
purchase gems from you, they are sometimes faced with the dilemma of being sure
that what they are our basing is of the actual value it’s being sold to them.
Having gem certifications will assure them of what they are purchasing.
When a gem is certified, it means
that it has been verified as either being 100% natural or lab-grown, as well as
meeting certain industry standards (in terms of quality) as stated by a
qualified and experienced gemologist.
A certificate tells customers all
they need to know about the quality and standard of the gem. This certificate
will go a long way to appraise the gem, and is important for them in insuring
and reselling it.
A certificate from a respected
independent laboratory proves the worth and trustworthiness of your gems.
Knowledgeable buyers would, more often than not, opt for a dealer who sells
gemstones with have a certificate. This holds significant importance.

Unfortunately, there are a large
number of fake gemstone dealers selling coloured and synthetic stones and
passing them off as original gems.
To contribute to the efforts of
other respectable gem labs restricting such, we examine and measure every
detail of your gems and issue a detailed report on the conclusion of the
inspection. This report is derived from different quality parameters as
established by the gem industry, and are known as gemstone certificates.
At our SINGEM Gem Labs, we offer six (6) service, they are:
- Diamond Quality Certificate.
- Gem Identification Reports.
- Gem Origin Analysis.
- Diamond Jewelry Analysis
One of our offerings is the Diamond
Quality Certificate. in order to know the exact quality of a diamond, you will
need the information on the certificate. In testing, we assess the 4Cs – carat,
colour, clarity and cut quality.
Gem Identification Reports
Another offering under this service
is the Gem Identification Reports. We derive reports on the materials based on
the test of various chemical and physical properties of the gem. In doing this,
we make use of both advanced, and traditional devices which are supported by
The Gem Identification Reports
includes the type of gemstone, and for diamonds, whether it is an imitation of
something else or not. This report, however, does not include an assessment of
the quality or the origin of the gem.
Gem Origin Analysis
One important factor that helps in
establishing the actual value of a gemstone is in its origin, whether natural
(mined) or synthetic (lab grown). However, it is impossible to tell the
difference between them with the naked human eye. Only an expert can truly tell
using the right tools. When done, he/she will discover the metallic inclusions,
weak strain pattern and/or colors of ultraviolet rays that may be present in
the synthetic gem. There are also other parameters. All of this will be
included in the Gem Origin Analysis.
Each Parcel contains stones at a
different clarity, proportions, make, shape appeal factors, color &
fluorescence. Herein we offer assortment services based on these parameters.
Diamond Origin Analysis
If one high-profile customer was to
discover that the expensive diamond ring they had saved up for contained in
lab-grown diamond that is undisclosed, this can have huge consequences on the
trust your customers and potential customers have on you. This is why it is
important to have diamond origin analysis done.
We assess whether its natural or
synthetic: Chemical Vapour Deposition (CVD) / High Pressure – High Temperature
(HPHT). This helps in uncovering lab grown diamonds.
We also offer diamond jewelry
analysis. To derive our report, testing is done on a diamond that is already
studded in jewelry. This analysis covers a complete and thorough evaluation of
the diamond which will include profile, measurements, carat, weight, cut,
colour, and clarity, in order to derive its quality approximation.
Certificate and analysis reports are
only seen as valuable when is derived from an accredited laboratory and the
status of the certificate is one with an excellent report repetition. We are
licensed to provide these certifications and reports. If you wish to test your
diamonds, jewelry, and other gems, you can reach out to us in any other offices
or through our phone number.
