- About Certificate
There are many different things that you will need to consider when you are shopping for loose diamonds. After all, you will want to choose the perfect diamond for the perfect piece of jewelry to give to your special someone. When you begin shopping, one of the things that you will notice is that you can choose between diamonds that are Certified or not Certified . The best thing that you can do would be to choose a diamond that is certified for numerous reasons. In order to understand those reasons, you will need all there is to know about diamond certification. Here are the details that can help you.
When you choose a loose diamond that has been certified, it will have gone through a process with a licensed and accredited gemologist. The gemologist will need to be licensed through one of the following laboratories: the Gemological Institute of America (GIA), the International Gemological Laboratory (IGL), the American Gem Society (AGS), the European Gemological Institute (EGL). An appraised loose diamond cannot be guaranteed for anything. A certified diamond, on the other hand, will include paperwork guaranteeing it.
What does a gemologist look for when they are certifying the diamond? They will include a detailed report on the following Characteristics of the diamond :
· Cut Grade
· Weight (Carat)
· Measurements, including thickness and culet sizes
· Clarity grading
· Color grading
· Certificate Number (Usually inscribed by Laser onto the diamond's girdle)
When you receive the report, you will be able to ensure that the diamond offers just what it is advertised to include. This way, you will know that you are paying a fair price for a quality diamond. You will have all of the information you may need in order to insure the diamond as well. All Certified Diamonds sold by Superlight Diamonds will have the Diamond's certificate number inscribed by laser onto the girdle of the diamond. The certificate number is inscribed on the girdle of the diamond. It should be visible using a 10X magnifier, or a 30X magnifier if necessary. This number inscribed on the girdle of the diamond is the certificate number of the grading lab and it is verifiable on the website of the grading lab.
Shopping for loose diamonds will include making a number of different decisions. One of the most important decisions that you can make will be to choose diamonds that are certified. In fact, you should never choose a noncertified diamond because there is no way to guarantee its quality or value. Unless of course, you are purchasing smaller diamonds (say below 0.30 Carats- In which case you must trust your seller that he is providing you with honestly graded Accent Diamonds ). This is the best way to shop for loose diamonds.
