Why is Diamond certification important?
A diamond without its certification is not considered genuine and authentic. It can create doubts in the mind of a buyer or customer about quality of the diamond.
All diamonds might resemble each other but definitely the quality will vary. Since diamond certification is a proof of originality of the diamond attributes, it is thereby recommended to get the certification done because it is necessary to know the quality of the diamond you are buying for.
