IV. Certificates and diamonds
We provide an expert report on authenticity for all our Products.
For Products with a minimum diamond size of 0.30 carat, You can - upon request - receive a certificate from an independent gemology laboratory (such as IGI, GIA, HRD, EGL), which bears a unique reference number, and describes the following characteristics of the diamond such as: shape, size, measurements, carat weight, color grade, color origin and color distribution.
The clarity grade will not be included unless You specifically ask for this, which is common practice for certification of natural color diamonds.
Such a certificate has to be requested at the time of the order, unless the diamond is already certified, and demands between 1 to 10 weeks of additional delay. The issuance of this certificate is made against a lump sum of 150 USD all taxes included for a GIA certificate, and 80 USD all taxes included for a IGI, HRD or EGL certificate.
