Laser Inscription is an additional safety provided by SGL to assure your peace of mind. Using a very fine and precise laser beam, alphanumeric characters, and even a personalized message can be inscribed on the girdle or outside circumference of your diamond.

The image is of SGL Labs website page which shows how to find the girdle of a diamond . When looking at a diamond from the top, the girdle is the part of the stone that creates the outline. From the side, the girdle separates the pavilion, or bottom, from the crown, the set of facets around the top.

Importance of Laser Inscription

The girdle of your diamond runs around the outer edge between the upper crown facets and the lower pavilion facets. It is the thin outer edge, separating the upper part of the diamond from the lower section. The polished, faceted or bruited (matt) girdle includes the number applied microscopically.

SGL laser inscription gives you the confidence of purchasing a diamond. Retailers must use this as a further selling point since not all laboratories laser mark diamonds in this way. SGL records the stone under this number in their online archive. The inscription is almost invisible to the naked eye and can be seen under 10x magnification.
