Certified Diamonds: The diamonds assuring high quality

Almost all the diamonds look alike but their quality might not be the same. The quality of a diamond is the most important thing to check while purchasing a diamond. A certified diamond gives the guarantee that the diamond is of high quality, and without it, you have no assurance that the diamond you are purchasing is of the quality you're paying for. Thus, certification is important as it is used to examine a diamond’s value.

Certified Diamonds

It is not necessary that you must buy a certified diamond, you can also buy an uncertified diamond, but on your own risk. The quality of an uncertified diamond is not guaranteed. It might be having a great quality or might not. Both certified and uncertified diamonds are similar, only the difference is the piece of paper i.e. what we call a diamond certificate or a diamond report which is provided with a certified diamond but not with an uncertified diamond. There is not always difference in the price of a certified and uncertified diamond, but sometimes a certified diamond is sold with a higher price than an uncertified one, because the certificate helps the consumer to confirm the quality of a diamond they are paying for.

Thus, to get the best quality of a diamond, a certified diamond is recommended and this certification is obtained from the trusted gemological laboratory based on the four important properties color, carat weight, cut and clarity. And the most common labs for testing the quality of a diamond are Gemological Institute of America (GIA), European Gemological Laboratory (EGL), International Gemological Laboratory(IGL), International Gemological Institute(IGI), Hoge Raad Voor Diamant(HRD), American Gem Society (AGS).

So care must be taken while purchasing a diamond so that you may get the best.

Certified Diamonds: Allows purchaser to purchase with confidence

A diamond certification is the blue print of the loose diamond which is also known as diamond grading report that represents the lustrous diamonds that has undergone the quality test by a trusted gemological laboratory based on its “4 C” attributes Cut, Color, Clarity, and Carat. These laboratory tests or grading’s are always accurate and uniform to industry standards. This helps with insurance and reselling. A diamond’s certificate should show the inspection date, shape, cut style, diamond measurement (length, width, and height), carat, color, clarity and any additional information the diamond graders found after examing the diamond.

Certified Diamonds

Certified diamonds confirms the quality and allows purchasers to purchase diamonds with confidence based on its attributes rather than blindly trusting the sales pitch of the retailer. So when the gemological laboratory hand over this grading certificate to the consumers, they get little bit idea about the quality of diamond and what the diamond will look like. Certified diamonds also:

  • Has better value than their non-certified counterparts, especially for resale and upgrading purposes.
  • Simplifies the comparison process. Because of this kind of certification it has become much easier to compare certified diamonds based on the "4 Cs" rather than depending on the visual inspection.

When purchasing certified diamonds, be sure that the diamond certification is from a third-party laboratory rather than one associated with the store or jeweller who may offer a biased opinion to facilitate the sale.
