Protecting Your Diamond

You may be wondering how much you need to be concerned with protecting your diamond. And the answer is more than you may think! Although the vast majority of retail jewelers are completely ethical, every once in a great while, you unfortunately read about diamonds being switched out.

That’s why you’ll be assured to know that at Heritage Appraisers, we utilize technology called GemPrint. Did you know that just like a fingerprint, each diamond is completely unique? Through GemPrint, we’re able to take your diamond’s “fingerprint” and log it into the GemPrint system. From there, it’s transferred to a national database including that of the FBI.

That’s some pretty strong security protection when it comes to identifying your diamond and keeping it safe.
