Gem Scan Laboratories (GSL) opened its doors to Indian publics on January 16, 2006 at 3 p.m. in Panchratna, Opera House. The occasion was graced by Mary Forte, Zale Corporation’s CEO and the upper management. Zale Corporation is a $2.3 billion success story with over 2,300 retail locations throughout the United States, Canada, and Puerto Rico. Zale Corporations business units include Zales Jewelers, Zales Fine Jewelry Outlet, Gordons Jewelers, Bailey Banks & Biddle Fine Jewelers, Peoples Jewellers, Mappins Jewellers and Piercing Pagoda. “Zale Corporation’s CEO and the upper management of Zale gracing this ceremony itself is a testimony for our service and standards. At this time we like to tell the Indian Jewellery industry and the Indian public that we will provide the same quality of service we are known for in the past 21 years,” said Sam Barbuzzi, Co-owner of GS Laboratories. Being the only well known lab with ISO 9001 in Canada and the U.S., GSL Promises to bring the same services to the Indian market.

India is emerging as an international trading center and GSL international clients like Zales, Walmart, etc are all increasingly buying diamonds from India. GSL will serve them at source while they can also avail the services at other locations like Toronto and Dallas. GSL India is a complete branch of the international parent company. The Lab scores over others where quality of service and turn around time of the jewellery or diamond is concerned. It is completely computerized and accuracy is preserved, saving a lot on time. The turnaround time the lab currently promises is 3 working days. It will offer the Indian clients all services that one can expect from a world-class gemological laboratory.

“We keep our standards to the highest possible level. Other than regular 4Cs for the diamond we are also offering the report for scintillation or brilliance of the diamond. In other words this would certify the diamond’s cut,” adds Barbuzzi. One of the most important services for the jewellery manufacturers will be the branding. GSL assists them in the branding of the jewellery and helps their goods to stand out in the market. Unlike most other grading labs GSL does both 4Cs and scintillation of the diamond with new Fire Trace machinery. They offer various different products ranging from full certificate to credit card certificate.

The gemologists working at the new Indian Branch are recruited from India but trained by the parent company in Dallas. The gemologists carry degrees from Belgium, USA or GIA India. When branding for the manufacturers is combined with GSL’s reputed services it’s certain to make them unique among the other grading labs.
