Amidst GIA Scandal, New Book Offers Sparkling Insights Into Buying Diamonds

"Antique and period jewelry pieces are a major source of rare, valuable gemstones that are truly natural (that is, not artificially improved)," says Antoinette Matlins, one of the country's most highly respected gem and jewelry experts. According to Matlins, virtually all sapphires, rubies, emeralds, and many other gemstones have for many decades been routinely subjected to various treatments to improve their appearance. Until recently, this fact was not disclosed to consumers. Beginning in the 1970s, there was a significant drop in the value of these gems as a result of the influx of treated gemstones; the supply of stones-albeit, treated stones-rapidly increased and outpaced demand. At the same time, Matlins explains, the value of the rare, precious, truly natural gems, also dropped. That is, until today.
According to Matlins, "Without disclosure, no one realized there were really two different gemstone markets: 1) natural, unenhanced gemstones, and 2) "natural" gemstones, meaning "produced by nature" but improved by human intervention. Now that the Federal Trade Commission requires disclosure of treatments, people are coming to understand that there are differences and, says Matlins, collectors and connoisseurs are seeking truly natural gemstones of fine quality. "Prices are increasing dramatically for these gemstones because demand is increasing but supply is not," Matlins continues. "Natural rubies, sapphires and emeralds are among the rarest of all gems today because, with very rare exceptions, nature stopped producing them decades ago. Antique and period jewelry, especially jewels containing colored gemstones, offer unique opportunities for the astute, counsels Matlins.
For those who are more interested in modern jewelry, Matlins is quick to point out that there's nothing wrong with buying a treated gemstone. "In fact, were it not for the use of treatments to make more gemstones available for jewelry use," she explains, "only the world's wealthiest would be able to enjoy wearing fine rubies, sapphires and emeralds today. On the other hand, for those who aren't wealthy, Matlins adds that there are also some wonderful choices for anyone who wants an affordable natural gemstone.
