AFAIK, gem certification has not been carried out in London since 2008. However, this service, http://www.theassayoffice.co.uk/images/ ... esting.pdf , is available in Birmingham which is some 2 hours by fast train or car from central London. Bimingham is a centre of excellence in the UK gem trade, the Birmingham City university offering gem and jewellery related courses, including gemology.

I have no first-hand knowledge of these people but they do offer what you seek. I'd recommend that you should make your own enquiries before proceeding. It can't hurt to call them.
