Diamond Certification

 

What is diamond certification?


Understand the value of independent certification. Our Certified SI Diamond Solitaire Program ensures that you get the best quality diamond for your money. You don’t have to take just our word for it, however. Every diamond in our Certified SI Diamond Solitaire program is backed by an independent industry authority, the IGI. The certificate this laboratory issues for your diamond details the color, cut, polish, clarity and size information that makes your diamond unique. The certificate also provides an estimated replacement value for your diamond, which is valuable for insurance purposes. Buying a certified diamond gives you confidence in your investment.
 
A faceted, polished girdle traps more light inside the diamond, increasing its fire. We give you a whiter diamond for your money because every diamond in our SI program is certified I color or better.
 
A better proportioned cut increases the diamond’s brilliance and sparkle.
 
Platinum prongs are stronger, to hold your diamond more securely.
 
18K gold shank, containing more pure gold, is a better value than 14K gold.
 
Certificate number and Samuels name are stamped on the shank, for positive identification of your unique diamond.
 
The certificate number is laser-inscribed on the girdle of each diamond, guaranteeing your diamond’s authenticity.
