Are certain gemstones enhanced or treated to improve color or clarity?
Gemstone purchasers should be aware that natural gemstones are processed from the time they are extracted from the earth by one or more traditionally-accepted jewelry industry practices. All gemstones shown in our catalogs and website have probably been subjected to a stable and possibly undetectable enhancement process. All relevant information will be readily provided to the best of our knowledge. Prevailing market values are based on universally practiced and accepted processes by the gem and jewelry trade. Maurice Badler does not knowingly sell clarity enhanced or laser-drilled diamonds. Our fancy colored diamonds are natural color, with the exception of black diamonds.
