Lab-Grown Diamond Certification

By A Ritani on April 06, 2020

All Ritani lab-grown diamonds come with a grading certificate so you can be certain of its quality. Ritani’s lab-grown diamonds are graded by the world’s leading diamond laboratories such as the IGI, GCAL, and HRD. 

IGI Lab-Grown Diamond Grading Reports

The IGI (International Gemological Institute) is internationally recognized for its precise diamond grading reports. An IGI Laboratory Grown Diamond Report provides the same information as an earth-grown diamond grading report but makes it clear to the buyer that the diamond was lab-created.
