Reports

The DGS Diamond Report is a statement attesting to the authenticity of a diamond and providing a reliable and accurate statement of its identity and grade based on an internationally recognized system in the diamond and Jewelry industry.

Each diamond is analyzed by at least three gemologists who use their experience in combination with digital equipment to produce an accurate description of the characteristics of the diamond and the quality of its cut. With its detailed information presented in simple language, the qualities of a diamond can be truly appreciated.

The grade or quality of a diamond is based on four characteristics commonly referred to as the 4C's: the Carat weight, Color, Clarity and Cut. These are analyzed and the results are recorded in the DGS Diamond Report.
