A diamond certificate is a report that has been created by qualified gemmologists in a laboratory. The diamond is analysed under a microscope, jeweller’s loupe and other industry tools to give you a report. This report includes the diamonds colour, clarity, carat weight and cut on the certificate.
Many diamond certificates also include a diagram plotted with the diamonds inclusions. Certificates are an independent report that is proof the diamond has undergone an unbiased and professional examination, giving you peace of mind for your purchase and ensuring a quality diamond.
Some diamonds are individually laser inscribed on the girdle with the brand name and unique diamond grading report number. This inscription, visible under a standard 10-power jeweller’s loupe is your proof of ownership in event of loss or theft.
