Testing and screening in high demand at GSI’s new Hong Kong facility
GSI, one of the largest gemological organizations in the world, will provide diamond testing and screening for jewelry manufacturers and retailers at its booth during the Hong Kong International Jewellery Show.
The booth’s mini-lab will showcase GSI’s testing and screening capabilities now available at its newHo ng Kong facility, which utilizes the latest equipment for testing and screening undisclosed lab-grown diamonds.
GSI’s full-service lab in Hong Kong opened last September to better support the company’s customer base in Hong Kong and Mainland China. Important among the company’s core offerings is the screening and testing of loose stones and jewelry for undisclosed lab-grown diamonds – providing a critical checkpoint for goods being exported through Asia’s largest gateway.
To date, GSI has screened millions of jewelry units, with tens of millions of diamonds, through its proprietary screening process utilizing advanced technologies that speed up procedures and delivery time without compromising accuracy or quality.
“Demand for screening and testing services is at an all-time high as the industry contends with the challenges posed by undisclosed lab-grown diamonds,” said Debbie Azar, GSI President & Co-Founder. “Hong Kong is a major center for the international diamond and jewelry industry, and our facility there brings the full scope of our laboratory services to customers locally and across Asia,” she said.
GSI’s new lab facility is located at Kaiser Estate Phase 1, 37-45 Man Yue Street Hunghom KL Hong Kong Ste. A3 (5th Floor), +852—21229378.
