Dear Pearl Guiders
we have received two good questions concerning consumer protection and buying Persian Gulf Pearls with certificates from Bahrain.
The first question: client is planning on buying Persian Gulf Pearl/s over the internet, how does she know that the certificate from the Bahrain laboratory is authentic?
Second question: how can she be sure, the pearl that is received, is in fact the one in the certificate (with diamonds, the serial number of the diamond is etched on the diamond with laser, so it can be read under magnification and matched to the certificate's number). But what about the Persian Gulf Pearls?
Good questions, it's always safer to err on the side of caution especially when it comes to buying pearls. Any imput from the PGuiders on the Pearl Guide Forum would be very much appreciated.
