Description

The story talks about the practice of filling jewels with plastic and resin to hide cracks. Wearing hidden cameras, Dateline went shopping for gemstones at five stores that represented the complete range of jewelry outlets. Sales clerks assured us there were no chemical fillers of any kind in the gems, but they discovered that every sales clerk was wrong.
