A diamond grading report is essentially a statement attesting to the authenticity of a diamond. It provides a true and accurate statement of the diamonds characteristics and grade based on internationally recognized standards.
A diamond grading report will includes a plotted diagram of the diamond and all significant characteristics, cut, colour, clarity and carat weight. The report also describes the diamond's shape, exact measurements and proportions as well as grade the polish and symmetry. The report comments on the distinctiveness of the diamond, like fluorescence if present, graining, and any imperfections the diamond may have.
A diamond grading report is not a retail monetary valuation of the diamond; it is simply a scientific document that clarifies all aspects of the diamonds individuality.
Retail monetary valuations should be conducted locally as retail values may differ depending on local taxes and margins. At Jason Withers, we provide a third-party retail evaluation on request.
