GIA Offers On-Site Colored Stone Services at Baselworld 2017
Convenient access to gem identification and country-of-origin reports
 
BASEL, Switzerland – Feb. 22, 2017 – As jewelry artisans create unique and one-of-a-kind watches and other jewelry, it’s increasingly important to verify the authenticity and characteristics of gemstones adorning these pieces. To help ensure confidence, GIA (Gemological Institute of America) is offering convenient access to its colored gem identification and country-of-origin reports during the Baselworld 2017 Watch and Jewellery Show. Institute representatives will also be available from March 23 through March 30 during show hours at Hall 2, W23 to answer questions related to GIA education, research, laboratory services and more. 
 
GIA colored stone reports describe the type of gemstone, whether it is natural or synthetic, and if there are any detectable treatments. All reports include the gemstone cutting style, shape, weight, measurement, color and a photograph of the stone. Loose or mounted gemstones may be submitted.
 
Show Service Laboratory
The GIA Show Service Laboratory gives show attendees convenient access to gem identification and country-of-origin services for colored stones. GIA will accept gemstones at Hall 3, A37 Thursday, March 23 through Wednesday, March 29 from 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.; and Thursday, March 30 from 9:30 a.m. to noon. Temporary reports will print on site, with permanent reports sent after the show. For more information, emailcoloredstones@gia.edu.
