There are many laboratories throughout the world where experts assess diamonds and grade them accordingly. They determine the colour and clarity, as well as the polish, symmetry, fluorescence etc. WE are proud to offer our customers four of the largest laboratory diamond certificates: GIA, EGL, IGI & HRD.
GIA Diamond Grading Report: GIA is actually known as ‘The Gemological Institute of America’. This laboratory is the most recognised, most respected and largest for diamond certification. Established in 1949, GIA is a non-profit institute for gemological research and learning, which has now grown to nearly 400 staff operating in New York and California. The GIA Diamond Grading Report includes a full page A4 report, or an A5 Diamond Document, with a diagram of your diamond’s clarity characteristics and unique security features. Over the decades GIA have enhanced the already impressive layout and image of their reports. We are proud to offer an extensive collection of engagement rings, diamond earrings and pendants with these prestigious certifications.
EGL Diamond Certificate: EGL which is formally known as the ‘European Gemology Lab’ was established in 1974 in Antwerp, Belgium.
