Included with your Order

All rings and loose diamonds from The Diamond Shop arrive in a beautiful presentation box, ready to gift.

GIA certificate specifying your diamond’s grade, weight, measurements and any inclusions.

Certification

Every diamond sold by The Diamond Shop has been graded by the not-for profit Gemmological Institute of America (GIA) according to the GIA International Diamond Grading System. The GIA is considered the world’s foremost authority on diamonds, coloured stones and pearls, and GIA certification may be considered the equivalent of the deed on a house – its the official documentation that describes exactly what you’ve bought. It verifies that the diamond is genuine and natural, grades it according to the ‘four C’s’ of diamond quality (carat, colour, clarity and cut) and even provides a record of any identifying marks, also known as inclusions.

Your GIA Certificate

Each loose diamond purchased arrives with a GIA certificate, outlining its weight, measurements, grading results and any other relevant data. Your GIA certificate is an important document and should be kept in a safe place. The Diamond Shop will also supply a separate valuation document for insurance purposes.

Key information recorded on each GIA certificate:
