EGL vs GIA – The Truth about these Certified Diamonds.

When our clients come in with GIA certificates, EGL Certificates, and various other diamond certifications we are cautious depending on which certificate is presented. In the most general cases and by experience it seems as though GIA has the most strict and prestigious grading standards and therefore is the gold standard when buying or selling a diamond. EGL is a great company which has high grading standards as well, but it seems as if their standards are a little more “loose”. The rest of the grading companies are a distant 3rd from these two.

Remember, when you are selling or purchasing a diamond – make sure to include the GIA certification because this can add up to 15% value on your stone!
