Certificate weights and items that have been unset and weighed in a description may be subject to a 1% difference due to the slight variants of calibration from different sets of scales.
All items sold with certificates are sold subject to the opinions on those certificates and we will not accept other third party opinions
If the item has been proven to be misrepresented you will receive a full refund.
Any unauthorised testing will result in no refunds being made under any circumstances.
