PILLAR & STONE INTERNATIONAL commits to FULL DISCLOSURE.
Our policy of disclosing the true nature of our products is based upon 4 pillars:
We focus on “all natural” (not treated) gemstones.
If enhanced, we disclose the treatment status of every gemstone. This includes the type of treatment and its degree/extent of enhancement.
Highly valuable gemstones are accompanied by a gemological report from an independent, leading gemological laboratory (AGL, DSEF, GIA, GIT, GRS, Gubelin, ICA, SSEF).
We do not trade with “strongly treated” and man-made (synthetic) stones. Stones with highly invasive treatments shall not be considered as gemstones, they lack rarity and often require special care because they are not durable.
The price of our gemstones always reflects their true nature; in the case of an enhanced gemstone, this comprises the type and extent of enhancement.
