Diamond grading reports are hugely beneficial documents for any diamond owner to have. Most retailers and wholesalers should give you this without you having to ask but just in case, you may need to insist it comes with a grading report. The grading report should also be from an accredited laboratory like the GIA.

Why are these documents so important though? This article will discuss some of those main reasons to help you see it’s not just a meaningless piece of paper. Even if you purchase the finest quality diamonds in Sydney, you should still always get a grading certificate. Here’s some of the reasons why.

Why you need a grading certificate for your diamond ring…

Some diamonds come without a certificate. It’s also a bit tricky as diamonds that seem similar to the eye might be different and you won’t have any way to confirm that without a proper certification.

This is a big investment and the buyer needs to know what they are buying. Both from a sentimental and financial perspective, ensuring the diamond you purchase is fully certified is extremely important.

Here are some great reasons why:

  • Certified diamonds are rigorously evaluated.

The certification will scientifically evaluate and measure the 4C’s of the diamond which include: carat, colour, cut and clarity. These essentially give the diamond the price tag it has and proves its value.

  • It’s good to see what defects the diamond may have.

The certificate will list any minor defects that are unable to be seen by the naked eye. In a gemological lab, they will be scrutinized under a microscope so defects and imperfections will surface. It’s therefore essential these are documented so you know exactly what you are buying and how this effects the price.

  • It passes a range of tests.

The diamond isn’t just tested once. Instead, it is examined by several professionals who will give grades to ensure the process is rigorous and reliable. The report will give you a detailed breakdown including charts that detail important aspects of the diamond. This can include anything from angles to weight and cuts.

  • It will prove what enhancements have been done.

Many diamonds have been artificially enhanced with heat, lasers, and more to brighten the diamond and boost its sparkle. These will be detailed in the grading report so it’s very important to get this document to see what treatment it has been under.

  • It helps for identification purposes.

Some grading reports will also have a number that identifies the diamond and where it comes from. The detail may be brand and the engraving might need to be put under a microscope to be seen properly.

As you can see, there is a clear reason to have a grading report and certificate with any diamond you purchase. Alongside this, you should invest decent time and research into getting a good warranty that covers your diamond.
