Gubelin Adds New Disclosure Option for Gemstone Reports

RAPAPORT...  The Gubelin Gem Lab is launching a new option that it calls the ''next generation" of disclosure for laboratory-issued gemstone grading certificates.

Traditionally, gemstone certificates have been issued without disclosing the identity of the party presenting the gemstone to the laboratory for a report, Gubelin stated, so, the party with custody of the gem remained anonymous. With full transparency becoming increasingly important to the gemstone trade,  Gubelin Gem Lab will now offer its clients the choice of whether or not they wish to have their names included on the gemstone reports that it issues.

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 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, according to Gubelin.
