The International Gemmological Institute has reintroduced its Gem Audit to ensure consumer confidence in jewelry e-tailers. An Internet company submits a diamond and lab report to IGI; the lab's gemologists confirm the authenticity of the diamond and its measurements and weight. Laser inscribing is also available. Once the diamond has been confirmed to be the same stone inscribed on the report, the diamond, the lab certificate, and IGI's Gem Audit will be forwarded in an insured package to the customer along with instructions for returning the diamond if the purchase isn't found to be satisfactory. In such cases, customers are instructed to send returned diamonds to IGI for confirmation that the stone being returned is the same one that was purchased. IGI will attest to the authenticity and condition of the product in court if necessary. International Gemmological Institute, 579 Fifth Av
