Certificates

    A diamond certificate is an official document determining the characteristics and quality of a diamond. They are graded in laboratories using special lighting, tools and conditions.    Not all diamonds have certificates - you can obtain any size certificated diamonds, but generally we tend to provide certificates for diamonds weighing 0.30 carats and over. When it comes to smaller diamonds, usually the cost of the certificate is a greater proportion of the cost of the diamond and so is often more costly than need be.   If a diamond we sell doesn’t have a certificate, we can spend a small amount of time to judge an approximate colour and clarity for you.   Different laboratories do grade diamonds differently. Some tend to be more lenient than others! GIA tend to be the favoured laboratory - many of the world’s most important diamonds have been graded by the GIA (such as De Beers’ millenium star and The Hope Diamond.) The GIA also created the ‘4 C’s concept which is now adopted by grading systems worldwife.   Other grading laboratories include: IGI, EGL, AGS<, HRD, IGR and AGI.
