All of the diamonds that we supply or use (over 0.50cts) are independently certificated, which means that their characteristics (i.e. cut, colour and clarity) are independently verified. One of the leading laboratories is the Gemmological Institute of America.
Established in 1931, the Gemological Institute of America is the world’s foremost authority on diamonds, coloured stones, and pearls.
GIA exists to protect all purchasers of gemstones, by providing education, laboratory services, research and instruments needed to accurately and objectively determine gemstone quality. A nonprofit institute, GIA's mission is to ensure the public trust in gems and jewellery by upholding the highest standards of integrity.
Lots of our diamonds are independently verified by the GIA.
