The internationally recognized EGL International Diamond Report (established in 1974) is your diamond's DNA.
It independently certifies your diamond's carat weight, clarity, color grading, cut and other vital details.
The only way to separate one diamond from another is by expert opinion from a professional gemmologists, such as the EGL (European Gemological Laboratory). EGL use powerful analytical tools, and their experts have years of experience in grading diamonds.
For us, an EGL certificate is a real “seal of quality”. It assures you that the diamond you have chosen is nothing less than it should be.
It means that the diamond you are buying has been through a rigorous and independent testing process and the certificate you receive with your jewellery reflects its true qualities.
EGL certified diamonds are also laser-inscribed with their certificate number. This is a further security measure to ensure the certificate you receive really matches the diamond you have purchased. The laser inscription is tiny and discreet and not visible to the naked eye.
Yes, without question a diamond that has an EGL certificate is much more valuable and more sought after than a non-EGL certified diamond.
The report, together with the laser inscription, gives any buyer or new owner of your diamond the same peace of mind it gave you when you purchased it.
As with all the diamonds we sell, each one of our EGL certified diamonds is conflict free.
Yes, an EGL certified diamond is exactly what is says it is; nothing more and nothing less.
When you buy a non-certified diamond, you are relying solely on the retailer’s opinion.
Because the EGL laboratory is international, and globally recognised. SKD is a London-based laboratory.
The official Canadian diamonds we sell go one step further than EGL certified diamonds. A Canadian Diamond Certificate allows you to trace a diamond back to the actual mine it came from.
