Why it is Important to Buy an Independently Graded Diamond

Diamond Store

Just like you have documentation for your car, home or your other valuables, it is important to buy a diamond that has been independently graded by one of the industry’s trusted and reliable diamond grading laboratories.  At Padis Jewelry, we are proud of the fact that each diamond we sell over 0.40 carats comes with a report from an accredited, independent laboratory such as the United States divisions of AGS, Forevermark, GIA and EGL USA.

So what type of information will you learn from the report?  To start with your diamond’s grading report, such as the one provided by Padis Jewelry, should be from an independent lab and not just a report put together by the seller of the stone.  Keep in mind that the report is not an appraisal but rather a detailed blueprint of your diamond’s quality characteristics that will help you feel more confident about your purchase.  Part of the report’s assertions include specifics such the fact that the stone is an authentic natural diamond and will disclose if the stone is treated or enhanced to improve color or clarity.

The diamond’s grading lab report gives extensive technical details about the 4Cs of the diamond that includes carat weight, color, cut and clarity as well as includes a diagram of the stone’s inclusions.  Additionally the diamonds are rigorously examined by diamond experts for any flaws or imperfections.

By purchasing a certified diamond, you know just what you are buying.  Conversely when you purchase an uncertified diamond, you are relying just on the opinion of the jeweler regarding the true value of the stone.  Please see the Padis Jewelry website for more information on buying diamonds as well as our extensive collection of outstanding certified loose diamonds and gemstones.

Since 1974, Padis Jewelry has been a trusted source for buying exquisite certified loose diamonds, engagement rings and fine jewelry.  We are one of the only jewelers in the area that offers such an exclusive selection of top names in the industry as well as such a large inventory.  If you are a lover of beautiful jewels, please schedule at visit to San Francisco’s top jewelry store.
