Diamond Ratings And Grades
The Diamond Certification
Quality and origin of Elleroses diamonds are confirmed by a third party. A diamond certificate or grading report from an independent gemology laboratory provides an expert opinion on the diamond's quality.
GIA, IGI, HRD, and GCAL are just a few of the top gem grading labs that certify the quality of Elleroses diamonds. To obtain an electronic copy of a diamond's lab certificate, please get in touch with us.
What Aspects Affect the Quality of a Diamond?
In order to establish the overall quality and value of a diamond, the 4 Cs (cut, color, clarity, and carat) are applied to each stone.
A diamond's quality can be determined in part by its cut, color, clarity grade, and carat weight, but there is no ``correct`` way to look at a diamond. Many people looking for a stunning piece of jewelry are willing to sacrifice one consideration in order to achieve their goals.
They established the industry standard for diamond quality by developing a cut, color, clarity grade, and carat scale for jewelers and appraisers to use as a diamond quality reference.
Is there a formula for determining the Ratings and Grades of diamonds?
To help jewelers and appraisers determine the quality of a diamond, the GIA created a cut, color, clarity, and carat weight scale as industry standard.
At Elleroses, we go above and beyond the industry standards to offer Elleroses™Diamonds selected for their ethical and environmentally responsible origins.

What Is the Shape of Diamonds?
Elleroses diamonds are independently verified for quality characteristics and origin. A diamond certificate or grading report provides an expert opinion on the quality of the diamond and is provided by an independent gemology lab. Trained gemologists with specialized equipment measure the weight and dimensions of the diamond and assess quality characteristics such as cut, color, and clarity. Elleroses diamonds are certified by the world’s leading gem grading labs including GIA, IGI, HRD, and GCAL. Please contact us to request an electronic copy of a diamond’s lab certificate.
Natural Diamonds: What Are They?
The amount of pressure and heat required to make a diamond is unimaginable. Only 100 miles below the Earth's surface, at a pressure of 725,000 pounds per square inch and a temperature of 2500 degrees Fahrenheit, do these conditions exist, according to scientists.
As the diamonds created, they traveled through the hot magma of volcanic eruptions before being deposited near to Earth's surface.
Diamonds are produced primarily in Botswana and South Africa, but mines can be found in a variety of countries.
How Do Lab-Grown Diamonds Differ From Their Natural Counterparts?
To the naked eye, there is almost no difference between natural diamonds and lab-grown diamonds. Even so, because lab-growns are not as uncommon as natural diamonds, there is a significant price drop. Couples will be able to find gorgeous lab-grown stones in sizes that would otherwise be out of reach.
When carbon atoms are squeezed under the correct temperature and pressure circumstances deep within the Earth's mantle, natural diamonds are formed. Using high-tech equipment and professional supervision, lab-grown diamonds replicate these conditions.
Because of their identical atomic structure and content, lab-grown diamonds are essentially indistinguishable from natural diamonds. Both are made up of carbon atoms that are organized in a tetrahedral shape.
Diamond Ratings FAQs
In the end, the diamond quality is subjective by the person who is wearing the jewelry. Even though a J-grade color diamond is less costly than a D-grade on a diamond classification table, some people enjoy the hint of color.
They are assessed based on their color, clarity, and cut. On a six-step scale, a cut can be rated from Excellent to Poor. Flawless through Inclusions 2 are assessed on a 10-step scale from the best to the worst in clarity. GIA’s D-to-Z color grading system is used. Overall beauty is determined by the quality of the cut.
The 4 Cs of diamonds are traits that enhance a diamond’s beauty. Cut, color, clarity, and carat are the four Cs.
An independent gemology lab provides a diamond certification or report that provides an impartial perspective on the distinctive properties of a diamond.
Having a diamond certificate proves that a diamond has been graded by a professional who has an opinion on its quality.
That being said, we can confirm that all of our Elleroses diamonds are certified by some of the world’s most leading gem-grading laboratories.
