Professional jewelers know a real gem when they see one. Notwithstanding, a gem tester still holds a prominent position in the jeweler’s drawer. A gem tester is a valuable tool that will eliminate human error and correctly identify similar gemstones or discern lab-created diamonds from earth-mined diamonds.
Gone are the days when synthetic stones were manufactured with perfect clarity in large sizes! The market today is flooded with synthetic stones that mimic the size, color, and luster of genuine stones. This makes it increasingly harder to correctly assess a gemstone’s worth. A gem tester, also known as a jewel detector or diamond tester, takes away the guesswork of differentiating between gems.

Holding the gem stone tester, allow the tip of the thermoelectric probe to touch the surface of a diamond or gem. Pronto! The screen will now display the results.
How does a gem tester work? An electronic gem tester works by testing the heat conductivity of the material. Different stones conduct heat on different levels. Based on the heat detected, the tool can accurately determine the type of stone.
