Diamond certificates are documents emitted by accredited institutions, they are internationally recognized and represent the unique fingerprint of the stone. At the same time it will offer you the possibility to confidently buy the diamond you want by ensuring the stone is a genuine diamond. The certificate will contain a complete description of the diamond's quality and information about the cut, carat, clarity, color, measurements, polish, etc.
Color is evaluated by comparing it to the GIA color scale. The scale goes from D to Z, where D is the most translucent and most valuable, and Z goes towards yellow, having a lower value.
Clarity, is an evaluation of every blemish or inclusion within or on the surface of the stone. The type and position of these inclusions determines the degree of clarity and value. The certificate will display a schema of the stones's inclusions. They are so noted: "crystals", "feathers", "pinpoints", "naturals", "scratches" and "clouds" among others. Because every diamond is unique, the sketch is like a fingerprint for identifying every particularity of the stone. Not all laboratories include details of the diamond's inclusions in the certificate.
Carat is the weight of the diamond. One carat is equivalent to 200 milligrams, or 0.2 grams.
Cut is not classified the same way by all diamond laboratories. AGS for instance, ensures an evaluation of a diamond's cut on a scale from 0 la 10, where 0 is the cut with ideal proportion and 10 is the less remarkable cut. Other labs will define the Cut as "Excellent", "Very Good", "Good", "Fair" or "Poor". Diamond certificates might also include information about the diamond's depth percentage, surface percentage, table percentage, and general comments regarding symmetry and polish.
Measurements of the diamond are defined in millimeters.
