GSI Offering Barcodes on Grading Reports

Gemological Science
International
announced Feb. 16 that it is the first lab to include a QR
barcode on its reports, which will allow suppliers, retailers, and consumers
real-time verification of GSI diamond reports. 

Using any smartphone, a person can scan the barcode on the
report and instantly be directed to the GSI webpage that shows the
document. GSI is the only gem lab that
offers an image of the actual grading report online. 

“QR technology provides a rapid, third-party verification
for the consumer and others, which can help overcome considerations regarding
authenticity at the sales counter,” said GSI CEO Mark Gershburg in a statement.
