Before purchasing a diamond,
you should expect to review a copy of its certificate, as this is
your only guarantee of the quality and value of that diamond.
What's in a
A diamond certificate,
also called a diamond grading report, diamond dossier®, or diamond
quality report, is a report created by a gemologist, or gemologists,
who have scrutinized the diamond and placed it under a microscope
to analyze its dimensions, clarity, cut, color, finish, symmetry,
and other characteristics.
Nile Diamonds Are Certified
Every loose diamond
sold by Blue Nile has been analyzed and graded by either the Gemological
Institute of America (GIA) or the American Gem Society Laboratories
(AGSL). Blue Nile works with these independent laboratories, as they
are some of the most respected laboratories in the diamond industry.
These two laboratories are known for having the most strict, consistent,
and unbiased systems for grading diamonds. Diamonds that are accompanied
by these grading reports are the most highly valued in the industry,
as their quality is considered guaranteed.
addition to being graded by either the GIA or the AGSL, all Blue Nile
Signature Collection diamonds are certified by GCAL. This additional
certification provides you a second authoritative analysis of your
diamond. GCAL also verifies that your diamond meets all the specific
quality requirements of the Blue Nile Signature Collection.
