GIA certified diamond engagement ringsIf you are in the market for an engagement ring with a certification there are some things that Diamond Exchange Dallas feels that you might want to know. GIA certified diamond engagement rings are becoming the most trusted certification in the diamond industry.  GIA stands for Gemological Institute of America.   They are a nonprofit organization in the field of gemology that also has a process in which they grade and certify diamonds. Having a GIA certification on a ring should give a diamond holder much confidence in the diamond that they own. At Diamond Exchange Dallas we have a large selection of GIA certified diamonds engagement rings to choose from. In this post we are going to talk more about GIA certified diamonds, other certifications, and more about the grading process. If you have a diamond that does not have a certification you can simply send it in, they will certify it, and send the diamond back to you with a certification for a reasonable fee. By having a certification a diamond can often fetch a higher value as opposed to not being certified.

More About GIA and Diamond Certifications

At Diamond Exchange Dallas we are diamond cutters first by trade. With nearly 30 years experience of cutting diamonds we have seen every type of diamond imaginable.  Many customers we have dealt with over the years want their diamond engagement ring to have a certification.  There are several organizations that certify diamonds such as GIA, EGL, EGL USA. In order to get a diamond certified by any institution the diamond is sent in for a grading process.  Diamonds come back from the certifying institution with a very specific grade based on cut, color, clarity, and carat size, also known as the “4 c’s”.  GIA certified diamond engagement rings are becoming the most trusted, and also the most valued.

Our Experience With GIA Certified Diamonds

What we are experiencing is that GIA certified diamonds are more accurate than certifications from other institutions. EGL and EGL USA are usually a color and clarity grade or two off. Most people, even in the diamond industry, are unaware of this. In the future we feel this issue will be brought to light as the industry gets more educated and certifications are more looked in to. GIA certified diamond engagement rings will uphold there value in the long run. We are not saying- “Don’t buy an EGL certified diamond”, but what we are saying is- “Buyer Beware”. If your intention is to get the best certification for a diamond then we recommend GIA.
