resolved to the customer's satisfaction
I am a gemmology enthusiast and unfortunately happen to be a victim of the scam now called as “Natural sapphire Company-Scam”.
After seeing at lot of publicity they received (or rather they managed through a paid PR agent) for replica of engagement ring of Kate Middleton I decided to do business with them. My most repenting decision ever
I did a in depth investigation about the dodgy tactics used by The Natural sapphire Company and volunteering to expose few facts about The Natural Sapphire Company
a) Most important The Natural Sapphire Company swindle gullible buyers by overpricing their sapphires ; declaring their sapphires as untreated. This is a complete lie The stones are Indeed treated. Many of them using fracture filling technique where in surface fissures are filled up with additives.
b) The blue sapphire I had bought for usd3000 and self certified by The natural sapphire as untreated when sent to the lab found clear indications of Beryllium Treatment. In my particular sample Beryllium had penetrated considerable depth showing that treatment was under intense heat
c) I further got considerable information by contacting their Sri Lanka Colombo based agent one Siraj; who is currently at logger heads with them. NSC has a office in Columbo which they never declare . All the stones are sourced and sent to treatment through this office
I would urge anyone who has dealt with The natural sapphire Company to send their stone for valuation and to an independent Lab like AGS/GIA . Most of the valuation I did for the stones made me realise that I have bought the stones at 3x of the market costI have lodged complained ; if you too experience the cheat and decit file complaints with following agencies
