Foreign reports about fake accessories:

The European community reports mentioned that fashion houses and designers complain about mimicking accessories that it has a negative effect on them and expose them to major losses. These complaints are not true because the majority of people buying the false accessories actually can not afford to buy the original ones. The report has proved that the fake jewelry promotes their names by an indirect way. The report adds, punishing the people responsible for these jewelry is a waste of time. Prof/ David Wallis, council of criminal affairs and one of the report writers said -according to the British daily telegraph- losses incurred by the fashion industry from imitated jewelry is one fifth of the original losses, or may be less. The report referred to the fact that each year about three million British buy unoriginal accessories and they don’t see any thing wrong with that specially because it is extremely difficult for anyone to notice the difference as they are carefully made. This perfection and the high quality are the major topics the report focused on. Designers and fashion houses focus on these two things to face the other element leading to the high prices of the products nowadays.


The fake stones are called “synthetic” , while the semi gemstones or the gemstones alternatives are called “Gem simulates”.

The term “synthetic” is given to some materials made at the laboratory and it has to be similar to the materials found in nature, speaking about chemical constructions and similarity in visual and natural properties.

Some of the materials found in nature made by biological processes and corresponding to gemstones are called “artificial”. Like amber, coral and black amber. From this definition we can conclude that the word artificial all the time is accompanied with the inorganic gemstones.

Simulant refer to any material simulating metal. The similarity don’t have to be chemical construction nor in physical or visual properties.

Some scientists prefer to name all the fake gemstones with the word “artificial” because there are some slight differences between natural gemstones and the artificial ones. the best example on this is the fake turquoise as it has an unnoticeable cavities that looks like the holes found in Allimonet metal.

How to find out the original amber stone:

The first experiment is known as the salty water experiment and it should be similar to the sea water. Take the amber stones, put them in the water you will find that the original ones float on the surface while the fake ones sink. Usually this is due to the weight of the original amber itself which is 1.1 gm/ cubic centimeter of the material making the original material float on the surface because of the small qualitative weight of the stone compared to the qualitative weight of the salty water. The qualitative weight of the amber can be copied. Here is another way done with fire. Take the stone and put it near the fire for a few seconds, this results in releasing the beautiful smell of the amber. This way helps in differentiating between the fake and the original ones without much effort. There are many other ways like the warm greasy texture of the amber but the transparent one can not have the same beautiful smell like the other ones then the first way helps.

Detection of false watches:
