No two diamonds are exactly alike, even if their size and chemical compositions are essentially the same. Diamond grading reports, based on internationally recognized diamond grading standards, provide buyers with assurance that they are purchasing a quality stone.
Many of our diamonds have been graded by some of the most trusted third-party labs in the industry, such as AGS, GIA® and GCAL. For every graded diamond, we provide our customers with a grading report, which assesses a stone's quality based on several key factors.
what is a diamond
Diamond grading reports are obtained by submitting diamonds for evaluation at independent grading laboratories. These reports can help differentiate stones based on important characteristics that determine quality and aesthetic.
what characteristics are included in a
diamond grading report?
After carefully assessing and analyzing a diamond, the grading lab issues a detailed report or grading certificate that includes ratings and scores for each of the fundamental characteristics of a diamond — that is, the 4Cs: cut, color, clarity and carat weight.
Issued by a grading laboratory, this unique number is inscribed on the girdle of the diamond and can't be seen with the naked eye. The grading number links to a copy of the associated report held by the lab. Often available online, the report provides detailed graded information and comments that are specific to each unique diamond.
