Diamonds Are Forever, but Only Certified Diamonds Hold Their Value

Diamonds are forever, as they say; they’re not only among the hardest substances on earth but also have been prized throughout history for their beauty. But, not all diamonds are created equal; certified diamonds have undergone inspection and have a quality certificate from a laboratory such as the Gemological Institute of America or the American Gem Society Laboratories. On the other hand, uncertified diamonds might be real, but of very low quality. In fact, uncertified diamonds often have very little value at all.

If you’re buying diamond jewelry as part of an investment strategy, only buy high-quality certified diamonds. Certified diamond earrings, rings, bracelets, and necklaces can be worn and enjoyed, while also creating an emergency source of cash. In fact, the ancient, worldwide custom of giving a bride gold and precious gemstone jewelry has its basis in that fact. Long ago, if a woman’s husband died, she could be destitute, if she did not have her extremely valuable wedding jewelry.

Whether you’re buying diamonds as an investment, a gift, or for yourself, certified loose or set diamonds are the only good bet. The quality will be determined by experts and written down on paper. This assures that if you need to sell your diamond jewelry, you’ll get the best price.

Never waste your money buying non-certified diamonds. They could be nearly valueless, or worse, fake. Only buy certified diamonds from a reputable jeweler.
