In order to provide you the greatest possible confidence when purchasing your jewelry piece, all of our gemstones have been submitted to a thorough grading and certification process. Our moissanites are certified by the Gemological Research Institute (GRI), while our Lab-Grown Diamonds are certified by the International Gemological Institute (IGI). This way, you can be assured that your PERPETUA gemstone meets the highest standards of beauty and quality.
In addition, each gemstone comes with a laser-engraved report number on the girdle (the waist of the stone), which is traceable on the GRI or IGI websites. That way, you can have access to your PERPETUA stone's information at all times, while keeping your physical certificate safely stored in a secure place.
Why is the laser inscription on my PERPETUA stone important?
First and foremost, so you rest assured that both the stone and the certificate you are given, match with one another, and thus, be sure that your stone is of the promised quality and size.
Secondly, it is unfortunately commonplace that dishonest jewelers take advantage when you bring your ring in for maintenance to exchange your high-quality stone for one of lesser value. With PERPETUA you are protected because you can check with the inscription that your stone has not been replaced.
The inscription is not visible to the naked eye, but can be identified using a 60x magnifying glass which costs less than 15 Euros. It is a little tricky to master this technique, but PERPETUA will be happy to advise you on how to use this magnifying glass so you can locate the inscription of your stone.
