Professional ethics is paramount to us
Up to the 1990s we, the Italians, were the third population in the world who spent money on jewelry, following the two sacred monsters: the USA and Japan. In comparison with that time when we the third biggest spenders, we have gone down in recent years. On one hand, it is sad. On the other hand, we could say: well, guys, it’s time to roll up our sleeves!
Gemological Institute of Genoa is pure transparent. We are not interested only in conducting an evaluation or recommending you a Diamond. We have a genuine interest in our future, when our grown children will conduct a professional evaluation and give your grown children an advise on how to buy a good Diamond.
Therefore, we must have strong moral principles and highest ethical standards in the coming years.
Among the other services we also offer the photos of inclusions inside Gemstones to prevent Gemstone fraud. In the inside all Gemstones look quite different. Every Diamond and every Colored Gemstone has at least one distinctive feature that makes it different from others. Therefore we can photograph the inside of your precious stone to portray the distinctive inclusions so that nobody ever could replace your Gem imperceptibly by another one.
