Advances in micro laser technology in the past five years have made it possible to safely inscribe almost anything on a diamond or other gemstone, from personal messages to brand names, grading report numbers, bar codes and even photographs. In addition to personalizing a diamond, laser inscription can facilitate identification for security and tracking purposes.
GSI uses state-of-the-art excimer laser systems, produced by PhotoScribe Technologies, for all its gemstone inscription. Diamonds are guaranteed not to crack or fracture based on this exclusive cold laser technology.
Laser inscriptions can be as small as 10 microns. For comparison purposes, the thickness of a human hair is 75-100 microns. The thickness of a diamond girdle, which is the edge that forms its perimeter, is equivalent to a human hair.
