GSI Introduces Assurance
Gemological Science International (GSI) has announced the introduction of Assurance by GSI, a multifaceted solution offering retailers various services, such as an e-commerce fulfillment program, drop-ship service to consumers, and quality control for all new merchandise.
“Effective immediately, the esteemed laboratory becomes a one-stop hub for online purchases for its partner retailers, being the last stop before the consumer receives the goods, ensuring accuracy, consistency, and a strict level of quality control,” GSI said in a statement. While GSI is currently offering this service in the United States, it says it plans to expand to international markets early next year.
“At GSI, we are always looking for solutions to better serve our retail partners. We created the new Assurance by GSI service to protect both our retail clients and their customers,” said president and cofounder Debbie Azar in the same statement. “The pandemic boosted online sales overnight and presented retailers with new logistics challenges. Adapting our service offerings to now include a quality control and drop-ship service helps the retailers to protect their prestigious reputations. It also increases customer satisfaction with quicker, more efficient delivery, and it will ultimately enhance consumer confidence because every order is fully screened for both quality and accuracy before being shipped.”
GSI already offers diamond and gemstone jewelry screening and testing of finished jewelry, as well as quality assurance, and this new service represents an extension of the services provided by the organization. Goods are submitted directly from the jewelry manufacturers to the GSI laboratory, where they are inspected for quality and to ensure that the any jewelry represented as featuring natural diamonds does not contain any undisclosed lab-grown diamonds. The goods are then shipped directly to the consumer in the retailer’s preferred packaging. The quality control service is offered to retailers as well.
