Whether you are a retailer or consumer, if you are buying loose diamonds for any purpose, you would want to buy them from a reputed seller. Most people who buy diamonds know to ask for a certification.
Several agencies provide such certifications. The most reputed ones are GIA (Gemological Institute of America), AGS (American Gemological Society) EGL (European Gemological Laboratory), HRD (Hoge Raad voor Diamant or Diamond High Council), IGI (International Gemological Institute and CIBJO (Confédération Internationale de la Bijouterie, Joaillerie, Orfèvrerie des Diamants, Perles et Pierres or World Jewellery Confederation). Any diamond certified by one of these agencies would ensure, though not guarantee, that you are buying a genuine product. There are myriad reasons for insisting on a certified diamond.
Accurate and detailed information
One of the things that a certified diamond provides you is information on the exact characteristics of the gem, including its weight, shape, as well as its cut, clarity, colour and carat. It has details about any inclusions within the stone as well as detailed descriptions of all aspects of the gem. A certification is like a stamp of authenticity that is acceptable worldwide. It is just like when you set out to buy a car or an expensive electronic item, and you get the paperwork done before you purchase. A diamond is the same. The fact that the certification is given after assessment by a third party expert who has no relation to either the buyer or the seller ensures that it is an unbiased evaluation, and hence usually trustworthy.
Minimum chances of being cheated
Unfortunately, the jewellery business is full of unscrupulous people who enhance the diamond outwardly in order to get a higher price for it. Some stones with inclusions might be laser treated to eliminate the flaws. But for this, tiny holes are drilled into the stone, which reduces its value. Yellowish stones can be treated to make them whiter, a process which makes them brittle. Clarity of diamonds is enhanced by filling any cracks with molten glass. These are processes which are legitimately used, and can be useful if buyers are informed about it. But in order to protect yourself from sellers who hide vital information, certification is important.
Insurance & resale
You might want to get your gems insured in case of loss or theft. But without certification, it is impossible to get an insurance company to insure your stones. Certification also makes it easier for getting the gems replaced.
A diamond is forever, but that doesn’t mean that some people might not want to sell it. Without a certification, your stone would not fetch as high a price as it would otherwise. There is also a higher chance of a resale for certified stones than for uncertified ones.
In short, certification might not be mandatory but it is the smart thing to do when you are spending so much money. Buy your diamond at a wholesale price here in Sydney today with Diamonds Of The Sun.
