All our stones are systematically delivered with an ICA memo card certificate (The International Colored Gemstone Association).

You can also check the authenticity of the ICA memo card with the following link:

If the stone is already certified, we do not systematically add an ICA certificate, in which case you can request one. If you wish to receive an additional certificate or change laboratory, please contact us.

The other laboratories we work with are:

- ICA GemLab Gem Report: about 70€.

- AIGS Gem Report: 80€ approx.

- Lotus Gem Report: about 120€.

- GIA Gem Report: approx. 150€.

The clarity of a stone refers to its inclusions, small natural internal features that a stone may contain.

To measure it, we have established 5 categories:

- Loupe clean: The stone is free of inclusions under a 10x magnifying glass.

- Eye clean: The stone is free of inclusions visible to the naked eye.

- Slightly included: Inclusions are slightly visible to the naked eye, but do not impact the brilliance or beauty of the stone.

- Moderately included: Inclusions are visible to the naked eye, light reflection and/or colour are slightly inhibited.

- Strongly included: Inclusions are strongly visible to the naked eye, without any magnification with a magnifying glass.

This analysis is performed by our gemologists at the time of gemstone selection.

We offer both treated and untreated stones.

In jewellery, treatments are necessary on some stones to enhance their natural beauty, bring out their colour and reduce inclusions.

We accept natural treatment methods, such as:

- Heating: this is a technique used on many stones, which involves replicating the action of the earth: the stones are exposed to high heat, which naturally changes their colour and strengthens them.

- Emerald oiling: emeralds are naturally embedded, so they are soaked in colourless oil baths to fill their cavities (usually cedar oil).

We also offer untreated stones. It is important to note that untreated stones are more expensive because they are rarer.

The refund of the return will be made within 15 days after receiving the stone in our offices located near the cutting centre where the stone came from.
