‘Next Generation’ Gemstone Report Disclosure

Gemfields_logoLondon: Gemstone miner Gemfields and Gubelin Gem Lab have announced what they call the “next generation” of disclosure on laboratory-issued gemstone certificates.

Unlike current gemstone certificates, which are issued without disclosing the identity of the party presenting the gemstone to the laboratory for a report, Gubelin Gem Lab will offer its clients the option of including their names included on gemstone reports.

Whenever requested by the client, the following comment will be added to the Gubelin Gem Lab report: “This [gemstone] has been presented to us by [company name].”

The two companies said this new approach represents an important step in furthering the level of disclosure and transparency in the chain of gemstone custody, providing improved understanding of a gemstone’s journey through the market.
