Before purchasing a diamond, you should expect to review a copy of its certificate as proof that it has undergone an unbiased, professional examination.

What Is A Certificate?

A diamond certificate, also called a diamond grading reportdiamond dossier®, or diamond quality document, is a report created by a team of gemologists. The diamond is evaluated, measured, and scrutinized using trained eyes, a jeweler’s loupe, a microscope, and other industry tools. A completed certificate includes an analysis of the diamond’s dimensions, clarity, color, polish, symmetry, and other characteristics. Many round diamonds will also include a cut grade on the report.

TheArmak  Diamonds Are Certified

Every loose diamond sold by Armak  has been analyzed and graded by either the Gemological Institute of America (GIA)or the American Gem Society Laboratories (AGSL). These two laboratories are among the most respected laboratories in the diamond industry, and are known for their consistency and unbiased diamond grading systems. Diamonds that are accompanied by these grading reports are the most highly valued in the industry.

In addition to being graded by either the GIA or the AGSL, all TheArmak  Signature Collection diamonds are certified byGCAL. This additional certification provides a second independent and authoritative analysis of your diamond. GCAL also verifies that your diamond meets all of the demanding quality requirements of the TheArmak  Signature Collection diamonds.

More About Cut

How Does TheArmak  Grade Diamond Cut?

TheArmak  uses cut grades provided by GIA and AGSL whenever these are available. Many diamonds graded by the GIA prior to January 1st, 2007 do not have such grading. If a cut grade is not provided by one of these laboratories, TheArmak  defaults to a proportion system that uses measurements of depth and table to determine the amount of brilliance in a particular diamond’s cut. Learn more about how TheArmak  provides cut grades that allow you to compare diamonds using consistent criteria.
