Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
Diamond certification is a process by which a diamond is evaluated and judged for its quality. This is done by checking the diamond’s 4Cs – Cut, Carat weight, Clarity, and Color. The diamond must pass several tests, including being cut and polished to the highest standards, and showing no signs of blemishes or inclusions. Diamond grading reports assure the buyer about the authenticity of the jewelry piece or loose diamond he’s purchasing.
