NEW YORK, NY — GHI Gemological Laboratory, a consumer-centric lab specializing in the identification and evaluation of loose white diamonds and white diamond jewelry, announced that its diamond reports will be listed on the industry’s largest diamond platform, RapNet. This development is the latest expansion of GHI’s presence in the marketplace. Diamonds with GHI reports have been available since 2015 in U.S. retail stores and online.

In addition to the information available soon through RapNet’s view and report check functions, GHI digital diamond report listings will link to high-resolution, color diamond images. These images will enhance the buying/selling interaction by providing greater transparency in clarity grading, observations and diamond identification.

GHI also issues cut grade reports to highlight premium round and princess cut diamonds, with ideal as the superior grade. These reports, and diamond and hearts & arrows diamond reports, are available in both print and digital formats. Additionally, GHI issues reports for diamond jewelry.

For consumers, GHI will soon release an enhanced version of its digital report, with features designed to make gemological data easily understandable. The lab’s growing collection of consumer-focused resources includes “All About Diamonds” store displays, printed guides, an online diamond glossary, and a direct email connection to lab staff, “Ask a Gemologist.” Consumers can also check issued report numbers and view sample reports at ghigemlab.com.

“At GHI, we continuously consider how we can support each level of the industry chain,” says Deborah Jakubovic, executive manager of GHI. “What do wholesalers and retailers need to know to meet the needs of their customers? How can we help them communicate? And how can we help consumers feel comfortable about their purchases?”

Jakubovic added, “Our mission is, of course, to provide expert, objective reports. However, the work of a modern gem lab goes far beyond the typical four ‘C’s. People rely on us for skillful identification, deep gemological knowledge and our ability to cut through clutter — to create clarity of information for everyone in the purchase process. As part of RapNet, we plan to bring that clarity to a broader audience than ever before.”

Wilkerson Testimonials

A Liquidation Sale during a Pandemic? Wilkerson Showed Them the Way

For 25 years, Stafford Jewelers of Cincinnati, Ohio, was THE place to go for special gifts, engagement diamonds, high-end Swiss watch brands — in other words, the crème de la crème of fine jewelry. But this summer, the Stafford family was ready to retire. So, they chose Wilkerson to help them close up shop. “One of the biggest concerns was having the sale in the middle of COVID,” says Director of Stores Michelle Randle. Wilkerson gave the Stafford team plenty of ideas as well as safety guidelines, which they closely followed. “All of the employees felt safe, the customers coming in the door felt safe and we did a lot of business,” says Randle. How much business? “The inventory flew,” she says. Translation: They sold millions and millions of dollars-worth of merchandise. Randle calls it, “an incredible experience.” Would she recommend Wilkerson to other retailers who are thinking of thinning their inventories or retiring? “Everyone got more than what they expected out of the sale. You have to hire Wilkerson. They’re amazing.”
