GIA Trained Gemmologists and Accreditation
New standards of appraising are making it easier for the consumer to buy with confidence. A Certified Appraisal Professional CAP CJA (Accredited Appraisal Program, Canadian Jewellers Institute) Gemmologist has met the strictest standards of ethics, integrity and accuracy in quality analysis and non-inflated values. We are among the first appraisers in Canada to meet these high standards in gemmology excellence. The purpose of the voluntary accreditation is to provide our clients the ability to acquire their diamond with the confidence that the jeweller represents a superior level of integrity. Graduating from the Canadian Jewellers Association Certified Appraisal Professional Program (CAP), we abide by the CAP Code of Ethics and Standards (www.canadianjewellers.com).
2 GIA trained Graduate Gemmologists on-site to help you navigate diamond and gemstone qualities. This is important to note as many jewellery stores do not have staff with specific industry training.
