For people interested in diamonds, the diamond certificate is also known as a Diamond Grading Report. This report originates out of the Gemological Institute of America (GIA), and you must demand this report when you obtain a diamond. With the diamond certificate, you are able to verify the color, cut, carat, weight, and clarity of the diamond.

You do not need to be concerned about the seller telling you any false information, as the certification is generated by the GIA - not the dealer. You could be required to pay for your certification, still, the price is usually low, and in many instances, it'll assist you negotiating a better price - or prevent you from buying a lesser quality stone entirely.

If you obtain a high caliber diamond, and then later opt to peddle it, you will have to possess the certification, or else you will experience a difficult time trying to sell it to someone else. Additionally, you may utilize the Diamond Grading Report in order to study the marketplace price of the gemstone in question. Make sure you use the guide that issued by the diamond cutting profession.

You can effortlessly find out just what the stone is valued at therefore this date will prevent you from overpaying, as well as prevent a seller from under-charging also. A duplicate of the Diamond Grading Report must be tendered to your insurance supplier too, when you take out a policy on your gemstone. This provides total, indisputable proof of the value of the diamond should it be taken in the future, additionally insurance companies cannot argue with the written report.

You should always avoid diamond sellers that seem reluctant to provide certification! This same applies to dealers that inform you that a certificate gemstone would cost you more - the only extra price should be the cost of the certification, and that's fairly low. If the dealer doesn't want to give a certificate, then you won't want to have dealings with that dealer and don't accept certificates from Gemological Laboratories aside from GIA.

There are many slippery Gemological labs nowadays, though in the long run, GIA has a reputation as the most respectable as well as trustworthy - not to mention oldest - of them all. So steer clear of dealers who don't want to use GIA for certification, too.

Don't purchase a high priced stone without paying extra for the certificate. If the seller attempts to tell you to complete the transaction without certification, or if they wish to use an organization other than GIA, be certain that the seller has probably greatly inflated the actual value of the stone, and there's probably have something they are hiding from you.
