Diamonds are one of the costliest things in the world known to man.

What Are Certified Diamonds?
Simply put, diamonds that come with a certificate are certified diamonds. What this certificate entails is an evaluation of the diamond by expert professionals who judge, grade and measure it using a number of tools and techniques. Thus a certificate is like a blueprint of the diamond that gives exact details about its 4Cs and other unique aspects particular to that particular diamond. Buying a certified diamond is of paramount importance not only because the certificate is a proof that you have a genuine diamond, but also because diamonds without certificates cannot be easily resold.
