Far East Gemological Laboratory

Locally respected, Globally renowned

Our Experience, Our Reputation

Far East Gem Lab was established in 1988. The company’s range of services includes gem identification, diamond grading and jewellery appraisal. Besides the basic gemological services, the company also specialized in identification of B-jade (treated jadeite-jade – bleached and polymer impregnated), fracture-filled diamond, and some of the modern day treatment on gemstones.

Far East Gem Lab differentiates itself from gemological labs in the region and the world by getting ISO/IEC 17025:2017 accreditation. This has given us the foundation to run the lab in a professional and objective manner. On top of that, we are able to offer consultation to labs  to attain the ISO/IEC 17025:2017 accreditation.

Working together with our group of gemologists bring complete peace of mind and assurance in a subject that is so niche.
