3 Key Considerations for Diamond Certification

Our diamond jewelry experts have put together a list of the best ways to shop for diamonds and compare their certifications.

1. Ascertain The Diamond's Physicality

You can tell a lot about the beauty of a diamond just by looking at it. A certificate and the diamond's specifications aren't enough to tell you how the diamond looks in person.

We recommend purchasing from a vendor that provides free returns and a money-back guarantee when shopping online. You can return the diamond if it doesn't meet your expectations when it arrives. When shopping in person, be sure to examine the diamonds closely before making a purchase.

In the end, the diamond is for you and your partner to enjoy for years to come. It's critical that you're satisfied with the final result. There's no way a certificate could tell you whether or not you'll like the way a diamond looks or how stunning it is.

2. Decide If The Gem Lab Name Is Important To You

When it comes to diamond reports, some buyers are concerned about the lab name on them. This institution's brand name is what they're looking for. Others aren't fussed about the lab's name and are content with an IGI, DGC, or EGL-certified diamond.

Some buyers want a specific grading to be listed on their report, in addition to the lab's name. For example, they are looking for a F color diamond. If getting a F color diamond is important to you, you can save money by purchasing an IGI or EGL certificate instead of a GIA one.

3. Compare Gem Lab Certification Prices

When making a diamond purchase, it's important to know that the diamond you're getting is worth the money you're shelling out for it. You may find it difficult to understand what you're getting for your money because each lab grades differently and there are thousands of diamonds available.

It's best to buy diamonds from a reputable and competitively priced vendor to ensure that you're getting the best value for your money. What's the quickest and most straightforward way to judge this? Observe the price differences between diamonds sold by various online vendors.

When comparing diamonds, use the same gem lab's specifications. Comparing diamonds graded by the EGL at one online shop to those graded by the EGL at another online shop is an example of this. You can get a sense of which vendor is offering the best price based on the certificate and specifications of the diamonds you're looking at.
