By certifying top quality diamonds the Investment Diamond Certificate provides absolute confidence and assurance of quality and added value.

The Investment Diamond Certificate will only be issued for the best quality 0.50 ct. and larger, D-H, IF-VS2, excellent cut, polish and symmetry, that meet investment quality standards. Diamonds that lack overall brilliance, have features that limit trade liquidity or have borderline grades may not be issued an Investment Diamond Certificate.
