Diamond Grading Certifications
When it comes to buying diamonds for most people the first time they are made aware of a diamond grading system is when they actually buy them, not before. These graded certifications are vital when buying a diamond, so which diamond grading institute is the most trusted? There are many institutes such as IGI, HRG, EGL and AGS however it is GIA (The Gemmological Institute of America) who have set the worldwide standards in diamond grading since 1931 and today still excels all other institutes in diamond grading. For example, when GIA grades a diamond as a D then the diamond is a D, when other institutes grade a D colour GIA may not consider the diamond a D as it may not be up to the standards as the GIA. This also stands with the other 3 of the 4c’s so it is always a good idea to familiarise yourself with the 4c’s prior to purchasing a diamond. When purchasing a diamond always ensure that you receive the diamond grading certificate just like the GIA certificate on the left. Each certificate has a unique number which corresponds with the laser inscription on the diamond. This is how you know your diamond has been sorted and graded ethically by GIA. At Dubai Rocks we only use GIA certified diamonds to guarantee the best diamonds to all of our customers.
