diamond jewelry items over $1000 in value are appraised at no cost.
Appraisals are done by a third party independent and certified GIA
gemologist. As with all our jewelry, you can request an appraisal
for an additional $50 for lesser expensive merchandise.
All loose diamonds sold on our website are independently certified
by either the GIA or EGL Laboratories. Depending on which company
graded your diamond, you will be given a certificate of evaluation
similar to the ones shown below:
Disclaimer: We have been asked by
the GIA and EGL labs to clarify what constitutes certification by
their institutions. Although we have GIA graduate gemologists on
staff, Adde Enterprises, Inc., and it's subsidiary, DY Jewels, are
in no way accredited or certified by the GIA or EGL. No diamond
dealer or business entity can be certified by the GIA or EGL. Only
individuals can enroll in their diamond grading courses and go on
to become graduate gemologists accredited by the these labs. They
then go on to open independent appraisal companies or pursue other
work grading diamonds. GIA and EGL are not liable or responsible
for the accuracy of these independent appraisals. Only certificates
originating from the actual GIA or EGL laboratories (which are sold
with all loose diamonds sold by DY Jewels as depicted above) are
certified directly from the GIA or EGL institutions. Should you
have any further questions, please contact us directly at 866-659-1666.
Rest assured all your loose diamonds will come with a certificate
directly from the GIA or EGL labs, and all finished jewelry products
over $1000 in value will be accompanied by an appraisal from an
independent GIA graduate gemologist.
