Gemstone Identification Services

Did you buy some scrap gold and want to know if the blue stone is a lab grown or a natural?

Does a client have a family ring with a color stone and no one can agree about what's in the middle?

Gemstone Identification Services
Darling Imports began Identifying gemstones almost 27 years ago, when we took our first job. We have been buying and testing here at the office for so long that 10 years ago we listened to our clients and began offering a service of gemstone identification.

Things to Remember:

1. We prefer the stone to be removed from the mounting. This is not required but mountingscan prevent us from testing properly and if the ring is in the way we still have to charge for the labor for our attempt.

2. It takes a 3 – 4 business days. Our staff will test and evaluate the gemstones once we have collected a few samples and will call you the same day that we test.

3. Cost – Gemstones ID’s run $35 flat rate. We do offer discounts for larger quantity of items.
