We work very closely with ethical mine owners and lapidaries whose policies encourage the protection of the environment.We do not deal with stones from countries that have human rights issues. We work only with gemstones from sources of environmentally responsible countries. Most all of our suppliers are small family run organizations. No one that sells gems or jewelry should be certifying their own material, it's considered an industry bad practice, so we dont do it. Same hold true for appraisals.
There are no laws in most states or countries regulating who can appraise gemstones or jewelry. Anyone can "hang out a shingle" and call himself an appraiser. Don't be afraid to ask about the appraiser's credentials and affiliations.A qualified appraiser should be a G. Graduate Gemologist, and also have a current affiliation with one or more of the three most vigilant national appraisal societies (ISA, ASA and/or NAJA). An honest and accurate appraisal/certification of your stone should be an independent one. Don't be afraid to ask.
As Simply Sapphires is a member of the AGTA, the AGTA prohibits its members from certifying/appraising internally, because of the obvious confict of interest issues that could occur.
