Frauds in sale of precious stones

(Results of laboratory analysis of jewels)

(Prague, January 29, 2013) After one year, the Czech Trade Inspection Authority repeated the inspections of jewels offered at jewelleries. The inspectors checked whether vendors deceit consumers when offering jewels with stones whose composition does not correspond with the declaration. Totally 7 samples of jewels were taken in three shops in the very centre of Prague and in two jewellery shops in Český Krumlov. The samples were laboratory tested at the Prague Institute of Criminology. The expert analysis of the specialized laboratory included the following sentence in all the 7 cases: The composition of the stone does not correspond with the declaration. Administrative proceedings will be held with all the vendors.
