Will Your Diamond Be Certified?

Please read the following page for information whether or not your diamond(s) will be certified. 

Engagement Rings


When your engagement ring purchase includes a diamond 0.30cts or above your order will include an independent diamond grading certificate. This will arrive with your finished item of jewellery. 

We use a reputable, internationally recognised diamond grading laboratories. These include The Gemological Institute of America (GIA), International Gemological Institute (IGI) and HRD Antwerp (Hoge Raad voor Diamant) Please talk to us if you have specific diamond requirements. 

Diamonds selected at J colour SI1 clarity and J colour SI2 clarity will not include a diamond grading certificate (unless 0.50cts or above) 

You will receive our signed appraisal detailing the diamond colour and clarity within your document. Please contact us in advance of placing your order to request a certificate for J colour diamonds in weights below 0.50cts. 


A Note on Cut Grade


At Serendipity Diamonds we work with diamonds of a very good cut grade as standard. GIA records the cut grade of most round brilliant diamonds on the diamond certificate. However the cut grade will not appear on certificates for fancy diamond shapes. We ensure that all diamonds, both round and fancy shaped are carefully selected and appropriately sized for jewellery settings for your complete reassurance. 


Diamond Wedding Rings


Owing to the small size of diamonds set within diamond wedding rings, certificates are not included. All diamond jewellery is accompanied with a detailed valuation for insurance noting diamond colour, clarity and carat weight. 


Certified Eternity Rings


Please note that some of our eternity rings from the Raphael Collection are available with a diamond certificate stating the max - min colour and clarity of the diamonds. This is provided upon request at no further cost (please allow an extra week for this service).


Diamond Earrings


If your diamond earring purchase contains any diamond weighing 0.30cts or more,  above J colour SI1/SI2 clarity, you will be provided with a certificate for the diamond(s)


Diamond Pendants


If your diamond pendant purchase contains any diamond weighing 0.30cts or more,  above J colour SI1/SI2 clarity, you will be provided with a certificate for the diamond(s)


Multi Stone Diamond Jewellery


If your item of jewellery is set with a combination of larger and smaller diamonds, we provide full diamond certification for the larger diamonds (at or above 0.30cts and above J colour SI1/SI2 clarity). 

Smaller diamonds below 0.30cts will be matched to the colour and clarity of the larger diamonds. 


Small Diamonds


We do not provide small diamonds below 0.30cts with a diamond grading certificate. Very few diamonds cut and polished below this size are submitted to laboratories for certification. Smaller diamonds are hand picked and graded to your chosen quality before they are set. Full details are noted on the accompanying appraisal for insurance purposes.
