It really depends on what you mean by fake or legit. They are not fake in the sense that no one really forges these GGL certificates of authenticity. So, in that sense they are perfectly legit.
However, they are fake in the sense that they provide misleading, fake information. For example, the certificate you have here states it’s a natural, heated ruby. In reality, it’s a worthless composite ruby. I have seen numerous GGL certificates of authenticity where it’s said “natural emerald”, whereas it’s a fracture-filled, dyed quartz (fake emerald) in reality.
Thus, in this sense these GGL certificates are as fake as a three-dollar bill. They are happy to print anything on these certificates as long as it helps to sell their stuff.
Uhhhhh what!? Just because you call a piece of glass a ruby on the internet to sell that piece of glass for way more than it’s worth doesn’t mean it’s real. A gemstone is grown by nature inside the earth. If dumb and dumber are making the stone in lab coats with foggy glasses and Egg Salad Sandwich breath then that’s not a REAL stone. It’s Lab Created. Seems pretty simple to me. And lab created gemstones , precious or not, are tacky.
I have seen at least a few hundred of these GGL ” certificates of authenticity”, and I don’t remember seeing anything except one of these:
1. Dyed quartz certified as natural emerald;
2. Composite ruby certified as natural ruby.
Thus, if you see a “gemstone” that comes with one of these GGL certificates, run away!
There is no easier way to tell if a stone is a fake than the presence of a GGL certificate.
only your experience in the gem field that will determine your destiny…
I noticed that many of the fake gemstones mentioned in this post https://www.shopperlib.com/catawiki-proudly-selling-you-jewelry-with-fake-emeralds/
also come with the globalgemslab (GGL) gemstone certificates. I think that tells a lot about their certificates.
Thank you for this amazing post!
