A true diamond certificate, or grading report, is a detailed certification from independent gemologist organizations. The GIA (Gemological Institute of America) certifies diamonds, and is known as “The World’s Foremost Authority in Gemology.”
A diamond certificate will contain detailed information about your diamond. The color, cut, carat, weight and clarity will all be graded, and other characteristics such as florescence will also be listed in a diamond certificate. You may be required to purchase the diamond certificate when buying your diamond jewelry, but the cost is usually minimal, and you can then be certain that you are purchasing a quality piece of diamond jewelry.
Companies like Blue Nile sell certified diamonds that are certified by GIA or the American Gem Society Laboratories, and Diamond.com offers certified diamond jewelry.
Another advantage of purchasing certified diamond jewelry is if you ever decide to sell your jewelry, it will be much easier for you to place a value on it, as well as ease the purchaser’s mind that the diamond jewelry is real. You can use the Diamond grading report to look up the wholesale value of the diamond in question, which will help you determine a sales price.
It is good practice to avoid diamond dealers who are reluctant to provide a certificate for a diamond, or diamond jewelry dealers that attempt to sell a piece for a higher price because of the certification. One of the oldest and most well known sources for high quality certified diamond jewelry is DeBeers, and another classic source for certified diamond jewelry and wedding rings is at Tiffany & Co.

Even with the best of care, your diamond will eventually need cleaning. Whether through daily wear or storage, they will slowly lose their bright sparkle. Soaps, lotions and our natural skin oils can cause film and grime on diamonds and inhibit their brilliance.
If you would like to keep that Brilliance and Shine you will need to clean your diamonds from time to time. Remember that all it takes is a few minutes and a little care to keep that diamond as fiery as the day you first saw it.
You can use an small soft brush such as an eyebrow or lip stick brush and soap and
water to clean your jewelry. Simply use a bowl of warm sudsy water with a small amount of mild detergent and place your pieces in the mixture. Brush the diamonds with the soft bristles of the brush while they are in the suds. You will need to make certain that
you rinse them clear of the suds after cleaning them. You can also use a small kitchen
strainer such as a tea strainer to contain them while rinsing under warm water. Use
a lint free cloth, or a jewelry polish cloth to pat them dry.
If your diamonds are in need of a stronger
cleansing, you may want to use a liquid jewelry cleaner. Many cleaners can be purchased as a kit, and will include everything you need to clean your diamond jewelry. Make sure to read the labels to determine the one that is right for your diamonds and other types
jewelry, such as gold or silver.
