There are endless qualities of diamonds available on the market.
One way of insuring you are receiving the quality you are purchasing is to request a certified stone.
A certification is done by an independent, unbiased laboratory grading a diamond for quality, including:
- Cutting: proportions & polish (which I believe is of utmost importance for a diamond to maximize brilliance).
A diamonds beauty comes from the dazzling sparkle and fire that is only enhanced by perfecting the finished and cutting done by the “artistic skills”of a diamond cutter. Not all diamonds are finished to these superior standards. So if you want your diamonds “to catch someones eye” buy a quality, “well made” diamond. I prefer and offer this quality diamond and can guarantee it with independently certified stones.
The image is a diamond documentation example a customer would receive with the purchase of a certified diamond from one of the top independent laboratories.
