DIAMONDS & GIA CERTIFICATE FAQ
WHAT SHOULD I CONSIDER WHEN PURCHASING DIAMONDS?
The more you know, the more easily you can distinguish between an ordinary stone and an exceptional one. Understanding the basics of the 4C’s (Colour, Clarity, Cut & Carat) as well as Fluorescence is a key on the subject of selecting and purchasing a diamond. A slight variation in its specifications can change drastically its value, its rarity and its quality. For more information, please refer to the Guide on 4C’s of Diamond Quality and Fluorescence Guide provided by GIA.
WHAT IS A DIAMOND CERTIFICATE?
A diamond certificate certifies the authenticity, integrity and grades of your diamond. Diamond certification is a process where an unbiased independent gem lab tests and assesses the quality of a diamond. The lab issues a written report about the diamond. Each report has its own number which is kept on file at the gem lab and a copy is sent back with the diamond. A GIA certified diamonds includes a microscopic laser inscription of their certification number on the outer edge of the diamond (i.e. at its girdle).
GIA (Gemological Institute of America) Diamond Certificate offers you the best grading and most protection for your special investment. The GIA is the most reputable laboratory out there and is in fact the founder of the Diamond 4Cs Grading that all the other laboratories are using. GIA prepares the strictest diamond certification out there. So, there is no question that the diamond grade on your certificate is the actual quality of your stone.
DO ALL PURCHASES COME WITH A GIA CERTIFICATE?
