When  a diamond is certified it means that it has been graded in a diamond laboratory and has a written document produced stating the specifications of the diamond. Not all diamonds come with a certificate, and depending on the laboratory, the amount of information and accuracy of that information can vary. At MDTdesign, we mainly use GIA (Gemmological Institute of America) graded diamonds as we believe that they are the most accurate and reputable. However, no diamonds sold at MDTdesign is purchased by solely reading the certificate. A diamond’s Colour and Clarity are checked in-store and then compared to the certificate to see if our opinion correlates with the information stated on the certificate. MDTdesign will never purchase or sell a diamond based on what the certificate states or without inspecting the diamond first; we will always provide our true opinion. Just because a diamond certificate states that a diamond is a particular colour or clarity, it doesn’t necessarily mean that it is true. If people who have an extensive knowledge of diamonds still inspect a diamond before a purchase, then so should a person with less knowledge. We do not buy certificates; we buy diamonds.
