A diamond certificate is a report which verifies the specifications of the diamond, most notably the colour, clarity, cut and carat, together with other specifications including the measurements, fluorescence, symmetry cut and polish.
When diamonds are mined from source and consequently polished, the stones are not issued with a diamond certificate. Once they are bought by diamond manufacturers like Diamond Secret, the diamonds can be submitted for diamond certification.
The diamond report is only an opinion of that company and it is possible to send the same stone to two different companies and for the diamond to come back with different specifications.
Just like when asking three people for their opinion on their favourite holiday destination, it is possible to get four different answers! Between various diamond certification companies, there will be a difference of opinions on the quality of the diamond.
However, Diamond Secret uses only the strictest companies to certificate all our diamonds, to ensure we sell you the best possible diamonds in the market. As our database shows, all our diamonds are independently certified with the majority of them certificated by GIA (Gemmological Institute of America) who are the market leaders in the research of diamonds and their certification. The 4 C’s grading system which the diamond industry across the world use to grade diamonds was actually invented by GIA. We also guarantee all our diamonds to be conflict free ensuring we comply with the highest standards of integrity.
When deciding to buy a diamond, we recommend you buy a diamond which holds an independent diamond report. We also recommend that if possible that you view the diamond before purchase, as the diamond report is only a piece of paper and does not show you the true beauty of the diamond and how it sparkles.
