SSEF pioneered DNA fingerprinting of pearls in 2013 by publishing a paper in PlosOne, in collaboration with scientists from ETH Zürich. This research breakthrough was widely reported by media such as the BBC.

This research has been continued and expanded to cover precious corals and ivory too.

In this context, a review paper entitled 'DNA Fingerprinting of Pearls, Corals and Ivory: A Brief Review of Applications in Gemmology' has been published by SSEF researchers and co-authors in the Journal of Gemmology.
