The Rapaport Diamond Certificate (RDC®) is a grading report guaranteeing the quality of a diamond.

The RDC will only be issued for premium diamonds meeting Rapaport’s stringent gemological and investment grade standards.  Additionally, all RDC graded diamonds are double tested since they also include an original and independent GIA grading report.  These components enhance market liquidity and guarantee that the diamond is premium and of the finest quality.

Currently, RDC® reports are only issued for GIA graded stones.

The Rapaport Diamond Certificate guarantees the quality of the diamonds with absolute assurance, making it safe and easy to trade online and removing additional time and cost usually expended on physically examining the diamond.  This empowers international buyers to buy investment grade diamonds confidently, easily and directly from suppliers or trade them on Rapaport’s trading platforms.

The Rapaport Diamond Certificate (RDC®) adds value to the finest diamonds by differentiating and branding them as the best.

The diamond must meet the following basic grades:

  • Shape: Round Brilliant
  • Size: 0.50 carat and larger
  • Color: D-H
  • Clarity: IF-VS2
  • RapSpec A1 or A2 Specifications
  • An accompanying GIA grading report issued within the past two years

RapLab® provides clients with the finest quality electronic images and videos of diamonds, suitable for sharing online. The images can be uploaded to the client’s website or RapNet and populate retail websites belonging to RapNet Instant Inventory subscribers.

High definition magnification of select areas of the diamond enables buyers to digitally examine the diamond, thus improving the online diamond trading experience and optimizing selling power.

Every image is stored on RapLab’s servers. Once uploaded to either RapNet and and/ client’s websites, special authentication ensures that the diamond image presented online cannot be retouched.
