Jewelry: Precious and fine stones may have been treated in order to enhance their value. Example: oiling of emeralds, heat treatment of rubies and sapphires, whitening of pearls, etc.... These treatments are traditional and accepted on the international jewelry market.

No claim will be accepted if another laboratory issues a different opinion and the sales company and the expert will not be held responsible.
