The Gemological Institute of America (GIA), designed the universal guideline that aids us in determining a diamond’s quality. This guideline includes the 4 C’s system which categorizes diamond characteristics according to colour, clarity, cut and weight. This then helps to determine the diamonds rarity and value.
I delight in working with you to explain the diamond grading process in a way that is easy to understand and help you to make an educated and informed decision and purchase. I am pleased to offer a wide selection of ethically sourced natural diamond, including Canadian diamond, and lab grown diamond.
The following video by the GIA explains the 4 C’s and how GIA grades diamonds:
Lab grown diamonds are increasing in popularity, and I source the lab grown diamonds that I offer from a variety of North American suppliers including Diamond Foundry. The following video put out by Diamond Foundry is helpful in explaining how lab grown diamonds are created using the chemical vapor deposition (CVD) process.
