Sterling Canyon asks if you care whether your wedding ring has a fake or real diamond? Reports from the Gemological Institute (GIA) state that it has come across a pile of 600 diamonds. It was reported that when a sample was tested, all of the diamonds were fake or synthetic. These were diamonds that were advertised as being natural, and one of the companies mentioned in the report was Gemesis, a retailer out of Florida. Gemesis denies the allegations.
All of the diamonds were clear stones and probably originated from China. The GIA has issued a warning to consumers that fake diamonds have flooded the retail market and buyers should beware. If you payed a lot of money for a diamond, you should sent it to one of several GIA labs to have it tested. Also, shop with a reputable retailer and don’t go with some galleria in your neighborhood.
