One of the major concerns that jewelry retailers have is the issue of safety of their jewelry and cumbersome logistics while moving it out of their showroom for certification. There is also an additional concern of non-availability of goods in their showroom for the duration of the certification. The answer to these concerns is GSI’s “Unique Mobile Diamond Grading Lab”, in which the GSI team of trained graders will visit the client’s premises and grade their jewelry on-site.

The GSI laboratory in Thrissur, Kerala undertakes grading and pre-sorting of all sizes of diamonds. The laboratory offers accurate customized reports in different formats with competitive pricing.

“India is a crucial market for our business and GSI actively participates in industry events for maximum outreach to the end- customers.  With GJIIE participation, we are looking forward to spreading the word about our laboratory services in South India that hold an important market for our business,” says Mark Gershburg CEO, Gemological Science International.

Part of GSI’s success in India is its keen understanding of the growing domestic jewelry market.  The composition of the Indian retail market is unique- calling for a very specific trade model.  Considering the physical location factors GSI has fully –serviced laboratories close to the diamond cutting/ polishing and jewelry centers.

In India, GSI is also actively involved in working with polishing facilities, consulting with cutters and actively interacting with other organizations to coordinate educational programs and grading services. Proximity to polishing facilities and other industry infrastructure provides a valuable competitive benefit to the business.

What are the 4Cs

A beautiful diamond is one of nature’s most mesmerizing creations. But how do you objectively judge the quality of the gem? The 4Cs – Cut, Color, Clarity, and Carat Weight – are the universal standard for doing this.

Is there anything beyond the 4Cs?

The 4Cs are an essential and important description of a diamond’s characteristics. But there is a considerable amount of detailed information behind each “C” along with other qualities of a diamond that affect its beauty, such as fluorescence, light performance and more.
