As to the claims reported with Certified product. These items are fraudulent and are junk. If GLA is certified they would know that these items are clearly not of gem quality and are worthless junk. I took these to a Gemologist to have appraised they basically told me this is fraudulent certificate even for insurance purposes, as if for some reason I needed to file a claim to replace the item they would not pay because the items hold no value (JUNK not GEMSTONES) and is a fraudulent certificate. As for the 30 day money back guarantee, it takes time to follow up on the value, your 30 day guarantee would not be long enough as I am disabled and have to travel any where to get any type of services from where I live. This is definitely a scam and I will file complaints about these company's with consumer affairs. Why would any gemologist put a value on a certificate like this when it is clearly junk.

..... It is unethical and a ripoff. Looking at the items I have purchase in a government auction this is what I thought I was bidding on, Exactly how it was presented. Truly deceptive.
