CTIA: Fake diamonds from e-shop

(Brno, September 17, 2013) Online shopping is comfortable – it can save time and money. But it might not always be beneficial as detected by the inspectors of the Czech Trade Inspection Authority who evaluated expert assessments on precious stones purchased through the internet. The stones were advertised as “beautiful black natural stones”. However, after the expert assessment by the technical laboratory of General Directorate of Customs had ended, it was obvious that seller’s information about the stones was deceitful. “Tests proved our suspicions that the stones are not diamonds despite the seller provided a certificate on their authenticity. However, the e-shop sends Moissanites, i.e. stones of synthetic origin whose value is much lower than the value of real diamonds. Administrative proceedings will be launched with the seller,” said Tatiana Neuhybelová, the Director of Jihomoravský and Zlínský Inspectorate of the Czech Trade Inspection Authority.
