OUR CERTIFIED GEMSTONES

WE INVITE YOU TO DISCOVER SOME OF ANTWERP'S FINEST GEMSTONES AT THE L’ODYSSÉE OFFICES. WE HAND SELECT HIGH-QUALITY GEMSTONES OF ALL KINDS AND TYPES. OUR GEMSTONES RANGE FROM THE CLASSIC THREE: RUBYS, SAPPHIRES AND EMERALDS, TO MORE DISTINCT GEMS LIKE HEZONITES, MORGANITE, TOURMALINE, AMETHYSTS AND MANY MORE.

GRS

FOUNDED IN 1996 BY DR. ADOLF PERETTI, GRS RESEARCH HAS FOCUSED PRINCIPALLY ON THE IDENTIFICATION AND CHARACTERISATION OF HIGH-QUALITY GEMSTONES FROM NEWLY DISCOVERED MINES, AS WELL AS DETERMINATION OF ORIGIN FOR GEMSTONES DERIVED FROM CLASSIC MINING REGIONS. THE NEXT AREA OF RESEARCH FOCUSES ON THE IDENTIFICATION OF GEMSTONE IMITATIONS, SYNTHETICS AND NEW GEM TREATMENTS. OUR FINAL AREA OF EXPERTISE SPECIALISES IN COLOUR GRADING AND GEMSTONE COLOUR BRANDING, SUCH AS THE WELL-KNOWN GRS-TYPE PIGEON’S BLOOD AND GRS TYPE ROYAL BLUE.

GRS’S ONGOING EFFORTS TO KEEP INSURING HIGH STANDARDS FOUND IN THEIR INTERNATIONALLY RECOGNISED LABORATORY REPORTS, WHICH DOCUMENT AUTHENTICITY AND ORIGIN OF FINE GEMS. GRS’S COMMITMENT TO THESE HIGH STANDARDS IS EVIDENCED BY THEIR INVESTMENT OF MUCH OF THEIR RESOURCES  BACK INTO RESEARCH.

 

SSEF

THE FUNCTION OF THE SSEF LABORATORY IS TO ANALYSE PRECIOUS STONES AND ISSUE TEST REPORTS FOR COLOURED STONES AND PEARLS. IT WAS RECOGNISED IN 1978 BY THE WORLD JEWELLERY CONFEDERATION - CIBJO. IT IS ALSO A MEMBER OF THE INTERNATIONAL STONE ASSOCIATION AND THE LABORATORY MANUAL HARMONISATION COMITTEE (LMHC).

ALL SSEF LABORATORY GEMOLOGISTS HAVE A SCIENTIFIC AND GEMOLOGICAL EDUCATION AND WORK ON A HIGH LEVEL OF EXPERIENCE AND INTEGRITY. THE LABORATORY IS EQUIPPED WITH THE MOST MODERN ANALYTICAL INSTRUMENTS. THIS ENSURES THAT THE AUTHENTICITY OF GEMSTONES, ORIGINS AND POSSIBLE TREATMENTS CAN BE TESTED IN THE MOST SCIENTIFIC AND REPRODUCIBLE MANNER.
