How often do I need to update my appraisal?
We suggest every three to four years. Just bring us the original report and for a nominal fee we will update it for you on the spot.
Is there such a thing as "Certificate Diamond"?
Yes. The term "Certificate Diamond" is a diamond with an accompanying Laboratory Report from a recognized Gemological Lab.
What does “clarity enhanced” mean?
Clarity enhancement is an artificial process for improving the clarity of a diamond. This may include filling fractures and cavities with glass or resin. Our trained professionals are able to detect any clarity enhancement within the diamond.
