    Default Gemstone Authentication

    Can anyone recommend a company who can authenticate gemstones? Also, is it expensive?

    Both Peter. Even though my finished pieces are relatively inexpensive and no-one is going to buy them for heirlooms, I wanted to be sure of the authenticity of some of my stones.Who is Kerry?
    Thanks

    If you want to be sure, as opposed to having a GIA type certification then only buy from reputable sources.

    Thanks Peter - I contacted Sam and her prices are very reasonable, so will be sending some stones to her.
