The origins of the Gubelin Gem Lab go back to the early part of the 19th century. In the 1920s, the Gubelin Company, a firm that had been specialising in high-end jewellery since the 1850s, recognised the need for a broad and well-founded knowledge of the gemstones it was mounting in its own items of jewellery. The laboratory’s standard of excellence and tireless devotion to the science of gemmology soon came to be rewarded with international esteem and recognition.
From time immemorial Sri Lanka has had a sparkling reputation for highly treasured gems. Sri Lanka’s mineral rich soils have been yielding a seemingly never ending supply of high quality precious and semi precious gem stones such as Sapphires, Star Sapphire, Rubies, Star Rubies, Alexandrites, Cat’s eyes, Garnets, Zircons, Tourmalines and Spinels. The gem industry in Sri Lanka is of great antiquity. Reference is made in the scriptures to gems being brought from Ceylon to the Court of Solomon. It is also said that ages ago Arab adventurers came to Ceylon in search of this. The Mahavansa, the great historical chronicle of Ceylon whose authority is undoubted, refers, to the singular reputation of this Island for it’s wealth in gems.
