Synthetic testing for finished diamond jewelry is now available at GSI labs in New York, Hong Kong, India and Dubai. Clients do not have to have their stones graded in order to test for synthetics.

Synthetic testing of loose diamonds will continue to be available at all of GSI’s labs around the globe.
